Vishwas's Advice on Sunday, July 21, 2013 :
Many a times in life, one needs to do compromise with the situation because of some constraints or challenges so there is no need to feel sad or bad about it. You have started a job and may have supported you and your family and that;s a great gesture.
Coming to your experience of testing, if you have done it from bottom of heart, with passions and drive for excellence, this experience would come handy  in development to better your quality of code as you might know what would the potential defects. As you have mentioned that it may not be feasible for you to start as a fresher in the development, you can think of following

With the burning desire to shift to development
1. Start learning the relevant technology in your company
2. Seek information in current company about the potential opportunities and necessary ingredients
3 Accomplish some certification/s and also make sure you have much needed ingredients
4.Declare your desire for moving into development and most likely your company would grant your wishes

Be prepared to spend time for doing this and be focused.

Hope this helps.
