The financial support helped cover our costs whilst I was not earning. This made it easier for us to handle our finances, allowing us to concentrate more on our son. When we managed to get home, there was no stress about the loss of earnings and a great bond developed between the three of us.
My advice to others would be, if you are in need of help, ask. You will be surprised what support is available.
