I did it. I officially requested a one year unpaid (YIKES) leave from my job. Jill needs me to be her mom full time. Trading in my khakis and teaching gear to play trains and little people. Really I love being a mom and taking care of my family. God made me to do this.. Also, she has lots of hurdles ahead of her and I really just want to be able to help her jump them. Terrified though. Following Christ into this unknown is not easy. So many questions. Will we survive on one income? Survive we will because God will provide all we need. Will you pray? Pray that the leave is granted and that God will provide for us as we budget for next year. Pray that we will stay strong in the Lord and in His plan.
