You sound so much like a good friend of mine this time last year. He didn't want to have a baby until they were in better financial shape. His wife kept the pressure on and they were blessed with a healthy child in February.
Because my friend is a good employee and becuase he and his wife had a child, he has received a payraise and the company is now talking to him about a promotion. Truth is, some companies back employees who are supporting families.
Not sure if you work for such a company, but I say have a child because you want one and trust that everything will work out......you just may be surprised.
