'He Didn't Recognise Me': The Reality Of Raising A Satellite Baby

What would you do if you were studying overseas on a limited visa and a scholarship and you fall pregnant... would you allow your in-laws back in your home country raise your child until you're in a position to raise them yourself?

We look at the emergence of Satellite babies, children being raised in a different country to their parents, the cost of living forcing them to make a drastic choice.
