Put Out of a Job

I am a mother of two toddlers and my story is about how difficult a time I had finding affordable care for my children. When I left to go on maternity leave from my job as a contractor for the Federal Aviation Administration, I never imagined not being able to return. Unfortunately, the cost of childcare for an infant and a two year old would have taken about 80% of my paychecks (even with the onsite daycare center at the FAA) and so I was forced to quit my job. Since then, I have worked part time and have had to get state assistance with medical coverage for my children, because I lost their benefits (and mine) when I quit my job. It is really unfortunate that working mothers are put out of a job and forced to accept state help with medical insurance because they can not afford quality childcare.
