My husband and I have a preschool-aged child, and would like to have another child in the next two years. My husband's parents are older, divorced, and living in two separate states. He is estranged from both of them, and hasn't really spoken to either in about three years.
They will probably need some kind of assisted living or significant financial assistance in the next five years. We live closer to both parents than my husband's brother. His brother is in a better spot than us financially, and might be able to partially assist one parent financially, but he is also married with two small children and in an area with a very high COL.
For a number of reasons, we could not have them move in with us, nor could my husband's brother.
Has anyone been in this situation? How do we handle this? I'd appreciate any guidance. I've simplified our background greatly for posting purposes, but would be happy to answer any questions. Thank you.
