Are we in a depression yet?

I was laid off from my job Friday afternoon with absolutely no warning. They laid off the two of us that had been at the firm the longest due to the economy, so they say. I was shocked, still am, but feel a little better today. To top it all off, I had just sold my house Thursday and bought another one. So now I have no job and nowhere to live in a month. I was so scared of what to tell DHS and how they would react. But I called our adoption specialist today and she was really nice and assured me I would find something soon and seemed willing to work with me as I go through this phase in my life. Kayla is actually handling it really well--much better than me. Her attitude was great all weekend. Who knows what's going on inside her head, though. I already have a couple of interviews lined up. One tomorrow and one Friday in my parents' hometown so we'll just see what happens. I know God has a plan and I'll end up where I'm supposed to be...the journey there is tough, though.

I'm so sorry. You will come through this though and it might even take you on a more enjoyable journey. Hoping it will.

I'm sorry, that's terrible! Why the longest?? I thought it would be the opposite. No where to live? Are you losing your new house or has it not been finalized? Do your parents live far? I will pray for you two. Let me know if there is anything I can do.

Aw, for pete's sake, talk about "when it rains, it pours.."! Yeeesh.

I'm glad you have some interviews lined up - that's good news.

I'll keep my fingers crossed that things go quickly and smoothly so that this ugly spot is just a blip.

So sorry to hear. I bet anything you'll bounce back stronger than ever. Sometimes these things even turn out to be blessings in disguise. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

An all to familiar story!
I am sorry for this shoker. Your family is in our thoughts.

I am so sorry. I was laid of in January. Job market is tough but if you have interviews lined up you should be okay. Also, unemployment isn't bad. Hope it doesn't affect your new house though, negatively I mean.
