I will keep her in prayer.

Thanks for the good wishes, everyone. She's still in negotiations and doing really well with it - it's so hard to negotiate for yourself! They didn't mind having her question them. And she went in with specific numbers & information, showing them that she did her homework. It does look like it's going to work out a little better for her. She's probably going to take it because it's the start of her career path, so it's worth the risks involved.

There are times I wish she were a little girl again and I could take care of everything for her. But I can't.

It's been said that parenthood is the only relationship in which you actively prepare the other person to leave you. She's leaving, and it's bittersweet. But I am grateful, too, particularly with what's happened recently.

Use someone who can actually fix the problems for you. If you can cancel it I would and make reservations with WDW.
