someone in uk hired me as caregiver.he process my visa working permit w/o asking me many

It's a scam. It would be impossible for a UK employer to employ a non EEA national as a caregiver in the UK.

Unless you had worked for this man for at least a year outside the UK, you could not get a visa to work for him here. Also, the UK does not use the euro, you would be paid in pounds sterling if this was a genuine employer.

The ONLY way UK visas are ever issued is in the country of the applicant from a visa application centre, usually a High Commission or Embassy. The UK employer would issue you with a Certificate of Sponsorship which you take to the visa application centre with your documents and a fee of £270 which you pay direct to them. There you will be photographed and finger printed as part of the process. Visas are never processed in the UK and never by third parties, either lawyers or agencies. Your visa and passport would be returned direct to you in your own country. Your only cost would be the visa cost. All other costs are handled by you employer.

Nobody can guarantee you a visa and nobody can apply or process a visa on your behalf.

There are some golden rules you should observe when dealing with people on the Internet and the first and most important is that you never, never pay for anything by Western Union or Moneygram. No legitimate business uses this method of transferring money and you may as well burn your money as it is untraceable and irretrievable.

Always be wary of any unsolicited approaches from strangers that offer you jobs, inheritances, a share of the money being transferred out of the country, lottery winnings or prizes. They are 100% always a scam.

Have nothing to do with them.

How much per month should i have set aside for my babies arrival?

How much per month should i have set aside for my babies arrival?

Depends on your situation.....for instance, will you breastfeed? (most say that's free, but if you also plan to work you'll need a good breastpump ($200), milk storage containers (a few bucks times the amount of milk your baby drinks daily), bottles for when he's with his caregiver, etc., but the bulk of that is a one-time expense. If you plan to go the formula route you're talking a monthly expense for the first year. I couldn't breastfeed so my baby is on formula. She took to a rather expensive brand so we spend about $100 a month on formula. Once they move into baby food, that's not very expensive, but again, it depends on how much your baby eats.

Your initial costs for the car seat, crib, big ticket items may be absorbed by your family and friends at your shower. If not, the costs vary on what you'll spend. We have a $200 car seat system (stroller and car seat in one) which we love. But there are much less expensive brands and some much more expensive brands, depends on what you want and your lifestyle.

Clothes...depends on what you're comfortable with buying. Baby clothes can be as expensive or not just like adult clothes. Depends on where you shop. But definitely stock up on bibs, onesies and sleepers, and socks....just be careful not to get a million in the same age category....0-6, 9-12m, etc. kids grow fast!

Oh and diapers! Definitely check out the store brands where you live. Some of them are inexpensive, but not cheap in quality. In fact, I've found that the store brand in my area is very close in quality to the national name brands. I generally use store brand at home (our baby stays home, doesn't go to a daycare), and the national brand when we go out.

Then there are the toys. Oh man you could get into a lot of trouble with those! Our baby barely plays with 99% of the stuff she has. She loves the tupperware from our kitchen cabinets better!

Hope this helps! Feel free to ask more questions!

Has anyone loss a child at 6 month pregnancy?? help?

Has anyone loss a child at 6 month pregnancy?? help?

Fear Flor,

So very sorry to hear about your sister's loss. It's a terribly tragedy after carrying one's baby for six months. In addition to your "being there" for your sister, and the advice you'll receive here from moms, especially any like Ann who share how they have been through this, I think you and your sister would benefit from just going to a few specific websites.

To provide you with ideas on how to best help your sister, I would suggest that you ask the women who have been through this loss before. Consider posting a similar question, as you did here, at a a couple of these websites. These are national, international or online support group organizations that are run primarily by and for women "who have been there."

At the same time you check them out to register and post, see any listing of community support groups that they may have for a local support group near your sister. These groups, local so mamy other community support groups, are mainly volunteer-run, don't charge fees (they may "pass the hat" or have very minimal dues to pay for incedental costs) and therefore don't have big bucks for advertising.

You may want to ask them too, if they know of any counselors in your local area, who specialize in counseling women who have lost their child during pregnancy. You could call a local helpline and ask that question too.

I hope one or more of these groups may be helpful...

Grief counselors are available through their helpline. They also have a newsletter & conferences. Based is Maryland, their helpline number is 1-800-221-7437. Again, because they are volunteer-run, first call yourself, to check their hours and to ask your question!

Under their publications, this one brochure may hopefully be helpful (consider printing it out and providing it to you sister, if you feel it would be helpful to her):

Also see if they have a local community support group near your sister. Phone ahead to confirm that that chapter has moms, who who their child in pregnancy, at their meetings.

UNITE, Inc. (Has support groups only in Pennsylvania & New Jersey)

"My years as a medical practitioner, as well as my own first-hand experience, have taught me how important self-help groups are in assisting their members in dealing with problems, stress, hardship and pain... the benefits of mutual aid are experienced by millions of people who turn to others with a similar problem to attempt to deal with their isolation, powerlessness, alienation, and the awful feeling that nobody understands. Health and human service providers are learning that they can indeed provide a superior service when they help their patients and clients find appropriate peer support." - former U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, MD, who also served as a member of a self-help group, Compassionate Friends, an international self-help group for bereaved parents, following the sudden death of his own college age son.
