When Tiffany Franco promised her son, Daniel, that they'd go back to the US if it wasn't right for him, she meant it.
She married Ronald Smith in South Africa and got pregnant by him, but as viewers have now seen, she decided to go back home.
Does this mean that it's over for her and Ronald?
On 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, Tiffany realized that her move to South Africa would not -- could not -- be permanent.
"I’ve been in South Africa for more than two months now," Tiffany acknowledged to TLC's cameras.
"And the concerns I have of living in South Africa are piling up," she admitted.
"And," she characterized. "It’s thing after thing."
You can't judge any country but just one location, but there's something about seeing broken glass on a playground that makes a mom want to leave.
"Ronald has become a dad to Daniel," Tiffany expressed.
She emphasized: "And I know I love him."
"But," she noted. "I feel like my common sense is telling me, ‘Don’t live here. It isn’t safe.'"
"I’m taking opportunities away from my son and my baby that’s on the way," she confessed.
And she wasn't the only one who knew that South Africa was not the place for her family..
Daniel is such a sweet boy. Some 90 Day Fiance kids have received horrible, downright deplorable comments from fans, but not Daniel.
When his mother talked to him about where to live, he knew that he had to tell her the truth.
He admitted that playgrounds weren't the only bad thing about South Africa. He genuinely did not feel safe where they lived.
"I promise you I’m gonna make the best decision," Tiffany assured him.
Her goal, she explained, is always "to keep you happy and what’s best for you. I promise."
"I want to go back home," she told Ronald in a heart-to-heart. "And apply for your visa to come to the U.S."
Ronald has real concerns about that. He may not face the racial barriers that block others, but he has a criminal record.
"We’ll find a way," Tiffany assured him.
"Even though it’s a really long shot," she acknowledged. "Considering Ronald’s criminal history,"
"I can’t just move to South Africa," Tiffany expressed. "And not at least try to get him to the U.S."
Now, moving a continent away usually means that your marriage is going to fizzle out.
Not every long-distance 90 Day Fiance couple has the infinite patience of Nicole and Azan, after all.
But so far, it appears that things are still good between Tifany and Ronald.
The pair have been gushing about each other on social media and still referring to each other as "family."
We're so happy for them that they are able to make it work long distance. Not every couple could do the same!
Tiffany's plan may be to make sure that, with so much uncertainty under the current unspeakable administration, her second child is an American citizen.
She may also be hoping -- and betting -- that she'll be able to make a stronger case for Ronald's visa with a spousal visa than a K-1 visa.
Good for Tiffany for doing what's best for her children, even when her heart tells her to stay with Ronald.
We have all watcheda s 90 Day Fiance stars seemed to forget that being a parent is their most important responsibility.
We've been rooting for these two for a long time.
