Being a vet is tough and full of heartache. It is the most rewarding career I can imagine. Through their childhood, Abby and Amanda have declared their plans to be vets (and teachers, artists, writers and more).
As a young woman, Abby has come full circle and is determined to be a vet. I am proud of her, and excited to share this amazing career with her.
I am thankful Abby wants to be a veterinarian.
As a young woman, Amanda is determined to be a librarian.
I am thankful Amanda does not want to be a veterinarian.
I am proud of her, and relieved that she will be shielded, not from the pain of life, but from the pain of the veterinary field.
They both could change their minds, and we will support them 100%, but where they are now stirs up a mixture of pride, trepidation and relief.
