Prayers needed
Thu, 09-13-2012 - 11:01am

Today I find out my job is being eliminated. The company is going through a lot of changes ( the CEO just resigned). Two other people in my department were also impacted and three were impacted about a month ago.

So, now I have to figure out what to do. Both DH and I are going to be looking for new jobs. I'm just hoping an employer will want to hire a 12 week pregnant woman. If I could just stay at home I would be right now it's not an option. I would plan on working after the baby. I know God doesn't give you what you can't handle and we'll get through this. I guess this proves no matter how much planning you do, you can't be prepared what will be thrown at you. I'm glad I have my church retreat sisters and I went on this retreat last year as it's made my faith a long stronger and it will be a lot easier to get me through this.

I do get a 10 week severance pacakge and since I've been working in insurance I'm hoping I can either go back to a dental office ( was a dental assistant before) granted I let my licenses expire and I really don't want to do assisting any further, or I could probably do medical front desk as well.  I have been at my job since April 2008.

Oh, Sandy!  I'm so sorry.  I hope the right position comes up soon.  How long will you still be at your current job?

Oh Sandy I am so sorry. Same thing happened while I was pregnant with Jensen and I know it's so hard and stressful. Fingers crossed you and DH both find something soon! :smileysad:
