I watched a super-helpful webinar about financial aid for college. It's a whole different ballgame figuring this out as a parent instead of as a student. And a considerably more stressful ballgame, I might add!
It's pretty intimidating to figure out college for your kid as a divorcing parent who hasn't worked full-time in 18 years and whose spouse once made good money but who got laid off and is currently unemployed. I never thought that would be our situation when John was getting ready to go to college. But I have confidence that things will work out. John was accepted to his first-choice school, Southern Virginia University, a week ago! 🙌 It's an LDS school where he can do NCAA wrestling and where he'll be supported in his desire to serve a mission after his freshman year. It seems like the perfect place for him, and I hope things will work out for him to be able to go there.
