I thought I was done posting until after Christmas but we have some good news. After 48 applications (only 2 jobs posted) my stepdaughter was called yesterday for an interview and got a part-time job! Woohoo! She moved in with us on October 10th. She started looking for a job the end of October. It was difficult at times to keep her spirit up but we taught her how to not lose hope even when it feels hopeless, as eventually hard work and resolve will get you through. She starts on Saturday. A very nice Christmas present indeed.
