To have the family you have today?


What were the determining factors that brought you to have the children, work the job or stay home, live in the area you live, etc...

For as long as I can remember I've always wanted a husband and children. We've moved many times in the past nearly 13 years but I do like living in the area we are in right now because not only are my parents close by, so is his mom. I am big on family so this is wonderful. I stayed home with my kids for a few years when they were little but now I work fulltime in another state. I just roll with whatever God sends my way in order to meet our needs.

Your sister in Christ,


Robin

I always wanted a family and a great hubby. I was blessed with both. We both made the choice for me to stay home with the kids which I do enjoy even when they make

I always wanted to be a wife and a mom. I had originally wanted more children but after doing a deployment with two I decided that was enough for me if Rob was going to do a career in the military.


I did work when Rob was on sea duty but honestly, as much as I loved my job, I love it more being at home. I like being very involved with the girls and they feel secure having me here. With Rob gone so much of the time it is important for them to have a full time parent. I once thought I could go back to work when they were in school but now I am finding that they really need me more now. They like to share their day with me and have me here when they work on homework. They also both love having me at any and all events at school.


We live where we do because the Navy put us here. We could have gone to the west coast this time but decided to come back here since we already had a church and knew the area.
