Dear Mommy,

Pat has given you a lot of good advice and pointers for help that's out there for you.

I'm sorry you've found yourself in the circumstances that you have, however, I want to also offer you some encourgement. I was in a similar situation 20 years ago.

I was unexpectedly pregnant with my second child and lost my job due to bad economic times. I did get unemployment, which helped, however, it was also difficult to job hunt when there were few jobs and I was pregnant. I did end up with a part time position for a short time, but that ended quickly, as the boss was nervous to have a pregnant woman around the office - he thought I would go into labor and he'd have to deliver the baby (ridiculous of course, but still he was the boss and he sent me home).

My point is, that things looked bleak - I drove a 59' VW bug with no AC, lived in a travel trailer on someone else's place and had a 18month old and was pregnant. My husband did have a job, but it barely paid the bills and we made $40.00/year too much to qualify for WIC.

Somehow, we got by - and there's nothing I would trade for my daughter.

Things can seem really bad, but there is ALWAYS a silver lining. The child you are carrying is "proof God wants the world to go on" - the child has a purpose and so do you.

There are a lot of agencies, churches and just plain good folks out there reaching out to help you - just find them.

We're here for you too!

Hugs, Kris
