  •  These "kids" (8+ / 0-)

    are adults now.  The parents returned recently to Russia because of "health issues" (I'm guessing treatments are cheaper there than here, but that's seriously just a guess).  There's no indication that there's anything funny about the dynamics, just that the parents returned home but the now adult children stayed to continue their lives:

    elder brother (one who died) was married with a child; younger child stayed to attend college.

    There's absolutely nothing "off" about this at all; I've seen it duplicated many times in families that have international connections.  

    In fact, one of my kid's teammates is going to be facing this very same situation when her parents move to the Philippines next year for a job and she stays in the states for college.  One parent is already there and the other is staying here only so the child can graduate from high school, then that parent will join the family that has settled in the Philippines.

    Seems perfectly reasonable to me.

    •  thanks for the info - now it doesn't seem (0+ / 0-)

      "off."  I obviously didn't have the background.
