Yes, absolutely, without a doubt. And a time limit as well.
I'm going to play with your title here and make a corny analogy! Fireproofing is something you beforehand, to prevent a problem...so in the same way, perhaps people who are on shaky financial ground should wait until they are more stable to have kids. Now the question will come up: what about people who cannot get on stable financial ground? I don't know. Cross their fingers and hope for the best? That's what seems like is happening a lot.

Thank you so much for the info. I have to say to all of you who work/worked in a library.... I AM SOOO JEALOUS. That would be my dream job! I taught English for a while, and I thought about getting a master's degree in library science, but didn't really want to start over. I'd love to work on a part-time basis in a library some day though!
