Well met, Yvonne,
I won't presume to be a great teacher or anything special -- I tend to think I'm not much more than a beginner myself -- but I'll offer a few ideas.
If there are local groups, a temple, monastery, or even just a group of laypeople with whom you could practice, I would get to the task of visiting these places and seeing if any of them seem to suit you. The Buddha once said to Ananda that the whole of the Holy life is admirable friendship. While I imagine we can be a part of that here at Dharma Wheel, there is nothing like having real people who can help you find your way in real-time.
It may be important in this process to decide which school(s) of Buddhism most interests you or is most conducive to your life. This may take some time and be a little confusing -- don't hesitate to ask questions along the way. Buddhism has many very deep traditions that can be challenging to jump into if you're coming from an "outside" culture (just my opinion). Some traditions seem less compatible with others, while again others present few issues. Personally, I am involved with both Theravada and Mahayana (Pure Land) in my practice, but don't really associate too much with the Vajrayana (Tibetan) facet of things -- even though I have great respect for the Dalai Lama and would never intentionally disparage any tradition.
There is also a lot of good reading to be done, both in books and online. If you haven't already, finding a copy of the Dhammapada would probably make a good starter text -- deep and thought provoking, but lightweight and pithy. I'm sure others will come by and offer other suggestions too.
May you find the ultimate peace and liberation, friend. Be well!
