Dear Abby: Work assignment abroad makes waves back home

I took an assignment with my company that posted me to Hong Kong for two years. My adult children, ages 21, 26 and 29, were supportive, although my youngest was not especially happy about it. We video chat with our kids, trying to stay involved as much as possible. We have also visited multiple times. It’s not always ideal, but we try. We have also offered to pay for them to visit us as often as they would like.

Dear Abby: Graduation threatens to end sisters’ everyday closeness

My sister “Maddy” is in 12th grade and will graduate soon. Over the last two years, we have grown really close — from eating Chinese together every other day, to going shopping together. We have the closest relationship in the family, and I consider her to be my best friend. Although I have many close friends, her being my sister makes her the closest to me.
