he has a job!

Travis went from this…..

to this…..

Thanks to everyone for your support, prayers and encouraging words over the past several months.  It’s been a long wait but finally, the job search is over!  This is the first time in our seventeen years of marriage that he has ever had a Monday thru Friday, 8-4 job.  Everyone knows police officers work 24 hrs a day, 365 days a year, and he went from that to being a full-time grad student.  It’s been 3+ years but Travis will be back in the work force full-time as of November 7th.  His official title is Aftercare Specialist which is a fancy title for a master’s level case manager at KVC, a contracted company that works with the city.  From my understanding, he will carry a caseload of families who have been discharged from HHS whose kids were in foster care, CPS, the juvenile justice system, adoptions, etc and make sure their needs are being met, and they are getting the services they need so they don’t fall back into the system again.  He’s very excited; and so am I!  Hopefully this will be a smooth transition for everyone.

On another note, we have an appointment to see the surgeon on November 29th, and from past experiences, surgery will probably be scheduled within a week from that meeting.  I’ll update you after we see Dr Puccioni and know more about what to expect post op.  We would appreciate your prayers for Ryan as his seizures slowly continue to get more intense and frequent on a daily basis.  He’s such a trooper though and between seizures is still the happy little boy we love so much.

  1. Congrats to Travis and to the entire family on the good news. What a long ride and now you can finally put this worry to rest. We will pray that all goes well with the new job and will continue to pray every day for Ryan and his upcoming surgery. Be sure to take a few minutes to enjoy the moment.

  4. Praise be! We are currently in the job hunt after grad school. There are many many lessons we needed to learn. I learned them at times with gritted teeth, but the lord has been super gracious! Hopefully soon we will be making the same announcement!

    Thanking God for your news this day! Praying for you little man!

    Love,
