Hiya All,
Mum & Dad here although we dont have much left to tell you because Jack has been keeping you all informed!!
The flight was horrendous and everything that could go wrong did!!

Rotorua is lovely even with the smell and as Jack has said we visited Wellington and did the touristy things!
Have spoken to Jack and he is better than he was. Reading his posts made me sob all over again because he has told you things he didnt tell us which is hurtful but understandable.
Thank You everyone for your support when he needed it, it really made a difference to him and us now we have read his posts.
Be back on soon and thanks again.
XXXX

Hi Mum and Dad,

glad you made it here finally. Glad we could help out a bit. Jack sounds like a wonderful son.

Wishing you and him all the best for the coming weeks and months.

By the way I promised him a beer when he's in Welly - that's extended to you guys as well (Notice I make the offer AFTER you've visited!)

Hi, welcome to Rotorua

I'm another who got all emotional reading Jack's posts...there probably wasn't a dry eye in the house (well forum ) after he'd written. Great that he's sounding so much happier now & hopefully it won't be too long before he can travel over, whether that's for a holiday or longer term

Welcome after what sounds like a truly horrendous journey!

Try not to find it hurtful that Jack "told all" to strangers - so much easier sometimes to do exactly that. I would be immensly proud if one of my kids had shown such sensitivity, honesty and love. You've obviously bought him up very well! Now you are here could you bring mine up the same?

RobDon Jnr would be easier and kinds makes him sound like a hip rap star ... I could help him with his act if my performance last weekend was anything to go by?

Perhaps we need a poll. He's one of us now after all.

Hey guys.. so glad youve made it to Rotorua! - and i was another one - all sobby etc... but ur Jack is just great.. and its a blessing that he could chat to all of us.. it sometimes is much easier to tell stuff to strangers.. and writing things down makes sense.. at times!
Its going to be some reunion isnt it - when you are all together!!

love and Best wishes for your lovely new life in NZ!

Love
Berni

Hey good to hear from you guys, sorry to hear you had a horrid journey.

Yes you guessed it another Jack fan! as has been said before you should be immensely proud of how you have brought up such a lovely young man

Good luck in NZ and hope you all settle well
