The Best Decision For Your Child

Dr. Laura:

My husband has been a long-time listener of your show, and I am a new listener.  What you say about family and motherhood makes so much sense, I couldn't HELP but listen! 

We are expecting our first child in the summer, and after talking about it, we've made the decision that I will stay home with the baby.  I am so excited!  

I have a very good job and career, but family is so much more important.  We consolidated our financial payments to make this work economically for us, and I'm thrilled to be able to stay home with our little one when she arrives.

Thank you for being an integral part of our decision making and helping us prove that this is still an option for a modern-day family.  Since I was a little girl, I've always wanted to be a stay-at-home mom, yet today's social climate makes me feel like that's not an achievable goal anymore.  Thank you for letting us know we CAN accomplish it, and that our little ones will be better for it.  You are such an inspirational woman.
