I've been living in Australia for just over 17 months and while I am nowhere near settled and feeling at home, I feel much more settled than a year ago. Things that have helped are; finding a job, finding a church, making friends, getting to know the area and customs, and the birth of my son here. We are in the process of planning a move to a suburb much closer to Melbourne, her family, better jobs and services. I think that will help as well. I can't imagine this country ever feeling completely like home, but I didn't feel at home in most of the US states I've lived in either, so it's no biggy.
