When I was seven months pregnant, I graduated with my Master's degree. At the time, I thought that if I was blessed to stay home with my baby even for a short time while my husband worked, a Master's degree would benefit me when I re-entered the workforce. My employer was also willing to pay a portion of my tuition. What I didn't know at the time was that I would have two more children and ultimately be out of the full-time workforce for almost 15 years. I also didn't realize back then that when I was ultimately ready to go back to work, I would not want to go back to the same career.
