What A Day!
One of my goals is to become a homemaker. Unexpectedly that is what I have become (for now anyway).
Two years ago my company (a small, local credit reporting agency) was sold to a large corporation. We had the promise of job security. Six months later half of the staff was let go. We were told that each office is reviewed every six months.
I have watched our office slowly become downsized. I also saw an office in California close, then New York and unfortunately our office today.
Yesterday we were told there was a corporate wide conference call today. We all (7 of us) gathered in the conference room and instead of a conference call there was a HR person from Virginia there. We were informed our office is immediately closed.
We all received a small severance package and that was it. Nine years at a job I really enjoyed gone.
My greatest concern is our adoption. Our approval to bring our daughter home will expire in March. It does not look like we will be home before that happens, so we need to have our home study updated and our approval extended. I am worried that without my income we may not make it. I can not believe this is happening. Surely God wouldn't let us come this far, just for it to end. I know everything happens for a reason and I need lie this burden with Him, but I can not help but worry. Please say a quick pray that it all works out.
