USA is the most depressing place in the world unless you have a large family and big set of friends here. If I was in your shoes, I would run. If you and your DH were able to grow up in India and were able to come and live in US, why do you think, your children living in India will be unable to come to US in the future. In fact, I wouldn't even get the US citizenship for the kids. If its depressing for you, why would it be any better for your kids? Sure, US has great infrastructure but India has great education too. Reading from books is not the only education. Learning from people and being street smart is more important. Moreover, with Internet, Indian kids are smarter with more drive and ambition. Add the social structure and its the place to be. Most people in US are lonely and sad. They don't know any better and don't have the choice. I endorse Lakshmi's views. Unless there are any medical complications for which the support is unavailable in India, I would move back to India ASAP. The longer you wait, the harder it will be. The materialistic comfort will be glittering at first and will lure you. But you will never feel good here. Home is where the heart is. and India is HOME.
