How Steam Locomotives Really Work

Product Description
Steam locomotives were developed in the early part of the 19th Century, initially by Trevithick, and then most successfully by George Stephenson, whose engine Locomotion inaugurated the famous Stockton and Darlington Railway in 1825. For the next 150 years, steam locomotives were further developed and refined, until the advent of new electrical technology superseded them.

My daughter wants to move in with me but it’s really complicated what should I do?

When I was 20 I moved to America for a few months and I ended up dating this girl and got her pregnant. I lived in England at the time and we decided after a long talk that I should move back instead of staying but I’ve always helped out with payments and when ever she was short (such as when she had car payments or was out of work). I also always saw my daughter whenever I could and went to the states often and when she was older she started to come to the UK. My daughter has both British and American Passports. She’s now 17 and is arguing a lot with her mom and is wanting to move in with me. However I now live in Sweden with a fiance.

My Fiance knows very little English (but I am good at Swedish) and has a 12 year old son already, who knows English to an okish standard because of school but is not the best at it. My soon to be wife knows nothing but is willing to learn and always asks, what’s this word and so on. My daughter doesn’t know any Swedish at all. My fiance is 5 months pregnant with my child.

I talk to my daughter all the time on the phone and on msn/steam but she keeps on asking to move to Sweden.

My wife knows of my daughter and is ok with her when she has come to Sweden before for a holiday to see me.

But what should I do about her moving in, I don’t really have the space in the house for her because of the baby on the way and my daughters lack of Swedish will be a problem.

What should I do?
Thanks for answers.
My daugher will always be a big part of my plans as I love her very much.
Big part of my life*
