- Wedding: April 2012
I married my wonderful husband last weekend. With family in town for the wedding, we spent lots of time with his little niece, who I adore. All I can think about now is how much I want a child of our own, now more than ever.
I was fired from my professional job 2 months ago, and since then I’ve realized that I’m so much happier working a low-wage retail job than I ever was working in my field. Working in my chosen industry is extremely stressful and the hours are crazy, and I don’t want to go back to that.
If we could be afford for me to be a stay at home mom, I would do it in a heartbeat. If I could just have a part time job while Darling Husband supports our family, I would be happy with the job I have now. But there is no way we can support a baby when we can barely support ourselves, and we don’t even have health insurance.
I feel like it’s all up to me now. We can’t have a baby until I get a better paying job. I don’t have any prospects right now for full time work and it just feels hopeless. Thank you for listening.
