Once the initial shock wore off Michael and I knew that we had to come up with a plan of action. We took a lot of walks in the field next to our house and would just talk that summer. We both knew that having a baby was expensive and we had no idea where we were going to come up with the money. I had been applying for both full and part time jobs for around a year and I only got one interview. Laramie has so many over qualified people that finding a good job can be be almost next to impossible.
We tried to lay out all of our options, which were limited. To say that we were scared was an understatement. But, I think that just being able to get out of the house and talk to each other that summer really helped to make things better. The best thing that we did was continue to be a team and work things out as a team. No matter what your problem is talking about it with your spouse can help to elevate some of the stress of it. And sometimes miracles happen just when you need them!
