    Hi Anita,

    Thanks for your prompt reply ?

    Yes, my partner is a Buddhist and believes in the concept of reincarnation. So karmic debt here would mean encounters with the grandmother in another life/time or universe.

    Love and light,

    Hi anita and pink,

    Apologies for the delayed response. Thank you so much for your suggestions and taking the time to reply to my post.

    @anita, that’s a very interesting way to look at the situation through the lens of legacy. I very much appreciate your perspective. He is a bit stubborn when it comes to making decisions like moving to a better house or availing healthcare as he associates a great deal of self-worth with being independent, but I will try my best to ensure he has everything he needs. At the same time, I am mindful about not imposing my decisions on him.

    @pink, thanks can’t agree more with your statement about good fathers, and also your thought about focusing on spending time with him versus saving him.

    Love and light,

    Hi anita, no my partner is more than happy to support my father’s visa application. However, there are visa restrictions for a parent residence visa. The category has been closed for 2 years now and even when it opens, there is an annual cap and several other factors (english requirements, health etc.) that pose a barrier to him moving with us to NZ permanently. This is precisely why I am at such a deadlock about helping him.

    Thanks for your thoughts!
