After years and years of hard work and prayers, we have finally gotten ourselves to the point that we can afford to begin infertility treatments on a limited basis beginning at the end of the summer.
Now, after all of the years of high expectations and crushing disappointments, Ryan is in danger of being laid off due to budget cuts in our local police department.
Ryan is such a hard worker, and if work ethic was the determining factor I wouldn’t be worried a bit. He is awesome at what he does, and his co-workers like working with him. Unfortunately, in a bureaucracy like the police department, seniority rules. Over the last 3 years, Ryan had worked his way up to have seniority over 6 people. The last six months has whittled away 4 of these people already. So the concern is real.
I know whatever happens, we’ll make it through. We always have. I just want an opportunity for my shot at parenthood to work out for once…
