Bummer...

On Friday, Samuel got laid off. I think things will be ok. We have insurance through the end of the month, so we have some time to get that figured out. He can get unemployment, so that helps. We have been through this several times before...it seems like we lose a job every time something big happens to us. Samuel got laid off right after we got engaged. Samuel got laid off right after we got married. We bought our house--Samuel got laid off. We found out we were pregnant with Natalie and Samuel got his hours cut in half and I got laid off on the same day. A couple weeks after Natalie died, Samuel was laid off. When we were trying to get pregnant with Malachi, I got laid off (My first thought when I was sent home was "well, this means I'm pregnant!!"), and then about a week or so later, we found out he was coming. Now this. Oh well, we can either work really hard to make this easier and over quickly or worry (and that always makes things worse--at least for me!!). We've been through way more difficult times than this and someone always has it worse than we do. I just hope it doesn't last too long this time. :)

We've already been praying, even prior to reading your post. Beth keeps us in Spokane informed :) and as long as Sapphira is okay, I know you guys will put up with just about anything :) Congrats on that baby girl, who will every day remind you of Natalie as our Zach does of Samuel. She will remind you of the joys and the blessings of those moments that Natalie and you shared as you create new and beautiful moments with her. Enjoy these last few months with her living safely in your belly. Teach her now what trust in the Almighty looks and feels like as you put your family into God's hands and ask Him to provide for you. We'll be praying.
