advice are still indispensable.
Raising Kids in the Foreign Service
should be in the library of every Foreign
Service family, new or old. Though I’ve
been an FS family member for more than
20 years, I learned from this book that I
could be reimbursed for the cost of my
7th-grader’s online math class.
That information was available to me
website, it turns out. But I
wouldn’t have thought to look for it there
if my friendly “neighbor”—editor Leah
Moorefield Evans—hadn’t mentioned it
in her own essay.
