Last year, Gabby de ladenco Fomato was working long, late hours as an occupational therapist in the Philippines. She worked on her feet, helping those around her to cope with physical disabilities. Gabby coached her patients physically and mentally to help bring about positive changes in their lifestyles.
At home, Gabby’s first priority was her devoted boyfriend. They had decided to become a family, and were working out the logistics of moving in together. It was a big choice, and they were both optimistic about the change.
Gabby and her boyfriend moved to a small apartment in the big city. Their funds were limited, and their jobs weren’t ideal, but they were happy. Even with their new lifestyle and adjustments, Gabby continued working late hours at the hospital. But something was about to change.
A few months after the boxes were unloaded and the happy couple settled into their tiny apartment, Gabby got sick.
Her commute to work became grueling. Long hours on her feet felt unbearable. She was constantly exhausted. And her exhaustion was exacerbated by her nausea; she could barely eat.
And in the midst of all of the sickness came the explanation and the life-changing news: Gabby was pregnant!
The change was unexpected, and Gabby and her boyfriend were thrilled. But with the joy came a flood of anxiety-ridden questions:
- How would they pay for bills?
- Who would care for their child during their long working hours?
- Could they fit their new family into their small apartment?
- Did they want to raise their sweet baby in a high-rise in the city?
Gabby’s boyfriend encouraged her to leave her job so she could rest and ensure a healthy pregnancy. They both knew they needed the money, but she was in no shape to work on her feet.
Gabby was determined to contribute to their growing family. Another big change was inevitable: she would try to find work from home.
Gabby applied for several jobs on OnlineJobs.ph. Sooner than expected, she secured employment as an online content writer.
Several months after Gabby began working from home, her precious baby girl was born. Gabby moved to a beautiful home with her family, paid for her baby’s delivery, and even worked hard to earn a raise.
She continues to work from the comfort of her new home, where she can also care for her baby. Gabby chooses her own hours, works on her time, and she receives a steady, weekly paycheck. She and her boyfriend even put money into savings each month, to prepare for future changes life may throw their way.
