Please Pray for Ryan’s Job…

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…

Praying for his job to be safe from any layoffs, and for your treatment opportunity to be protected!

I KNOW you know this, but sometimes it helps to hear it... Things always work out. It will work out. It WILL. And it isn't *my* promise. It is YOUR time.

His co-workers must love him. He would be a riot to work with! Oh how much i miss you guys!

Don't give up faith Michelle. Of course we'll pray. Don't let the fear side track you. Just keep swimming. Don't you love that? Smart fish.

Huge Hugs and Prayers are being sent your way this very moment.

Like the other's have said, I just know things will work out for your good.

If there is one thing I have learned...if something doesn't go according to your plan it's because a bigger blessing is just around the corner.

Keep us posted...

All will be well and whatever happens will be for the best! I really do believe that. Luke has lost his job due to the economy 2x's now-1x in 2008 and 1x in 2009...and we are better off because of it. I hope your hubby gets to keep his job...if I remember right, you have mentioned before he loves his job, that makes it even harder! I hope all goes well and you can stay on track with treatments! :)

FAITH IN GOD MEANS HAVING FAITH IN HIS TIMING.
