Take the job and you can still have the long-distance relationship that you enjoy now. What's 3 more hours?

Take the job but from what you described about the offer it sounds like a calling. Anytime you can change a child's life for the better take it.

Take the job and learn to love Chicago!!! You are doing work that is near to my heart and I get the passion. I originally said "unless the job is your PASSION." It's your calling, your purpose. You may next be called to set up something similar elsewhere. I have a true heart and concern for foster kids who age-out of the system with no life skills. I've dreamed for years of being in this type of work, so I can tell you.. I've been married twice and engaged two other times. I built too much of life around men.

You follow your passion while he raises his kids and if it's meant to be, it will work itself out. I walked away from an engagement that was an intense long distance relationship. 17 years later we reconnected. Though the passion was clearly still there, we didn't act on it, and over time realized we really weren't compatible, though we respect one another and know that if we ever did act, sparks would fly! It's amazing how things come back around, either because they are right or to validate that they weren't.

Good luck!

Meeting in Chicago went good but there are a lot of questions still. No permits, approvals or facilities in mind yet. Said it would take at least a year to get these things together. I'm a little concerned but to get my name on this I have to be in it front the begaining. He is trying to support me but I know it's the hardest thing he could ever do. I still have not taken or turned the offer down. Lots to think about now
