Finally Joined

  1. lee, 32 years old, mom of 3 lady bugs (5,4 & 14mos), great wife (if if so say so myself). i am completing cna course and will be beginning my pre-reqs in fall. i am very happy i found this page. i was a corporate legal paralegal for 3 years, had a baby and got laid off all in the same year. i have always wanted to be a nurse, just didnt think i could, well after 5 years of parenting, being peed, pooped on and vomited on, living through labor and surviving meningitis (my 4 year old had it, when i was 6mos pregnant),and a will that cant be denied, i believe i can do anything. i have a ba so i am seeking a diploma in nursing. i want to be in nursing ministry or parish nursing, but since i am a paralegal, i may become a nurse legal professional.
    i am really excited about this site, and i am really happy to be fufilling a longtime dream of mine.

    Wow, quite a background. Welcome!

    I'd love to do some kind of missionary nursing away from the bureaucracy, which was the plan until my hubby and I had a surprise baby in our 40's. He is almost three and my goal is to be a stay at home mom.

    My other 3 kids are 21, 19 and 14 and I cannot believe how quickly they have grown up. I was a stay at home mom with them and loved it.

    I work part-time and my in-laws have my son at their ranch on those days or if it falls on a weekend he stays home with Dad and sis.

    Some friends of ours left two weeks ago with their 3 kids (3,6,9) for South America to work in an orphanage. Sold their home, their cars, everything they own. I admire their bravery. But they got out of the rat race and that sounds good to me.

    Best wishes on your endeavors.
