    Congrats to you! I'm relocating from NY to Richmond next week. My becoming a nurse gave me a career as opposed to a job.

    I love the responses. And although I don't see my situation as "inspirational", when I think about it, it is. I guess I'm just telling the story of thousands of moms all over America. So it doesn't seem too unique, but every situation, and every struggle is different, I love you guys. You, are my inspiration.
