What was the reaction of your family when you decided to come to Canada?

My family thought that I would return to Germany after being away for awhile. I come from a family of 10 children who have strong roots in Germany. My father was Lord Mayor of Gromitz and I still have two brothers who are on city council, one brother is the Chairman of the council. We were all close like friends and it is hard to leave a situation like that.
