Mark passed the Bar Exam. His hard work and sacrifice the last three years has paid off. We now can officially close this chapter of our lives and start a new one. This is what we've been waiting and working for, this was our goal, and it has been achieved.
We have been incredibly blessed the past few months. We are expecting another baby, we've bought our first home, and because of the housing crash, for much less than it's worth, and at a time when so many are out of work, a private practice took a chance on a new lawyer who hadn't yet passed the Bar Exam.
The economy is frightening, and the unknown future is more still. We're clinging to faith and family and wondering if this recession will take our culture a step back in time where values outweigh goods.
We've so far been removed from the effects of the economy, but as we enter as a new family we'll be thankful everyday that we have a roof over our head and food to eat, as we know that many families are struggling and sacrificing to make ends meet.
