After Lamar Austin and his wife, Lindsay, welcomed their bundle of joy into the world at the beginning of 2017 they thought their lives were complete.
Lamar was on a 90-day trial period for his new job with a security company when his wife went into labor before an on-call shift.
Just after his baby boy had been born, his boss texted him saying he was fired for missing work.
Coincidentally, Austin’s boy just happened to be the first New Hampshire baby of 2017 so along with their new addition to the family came headlines of the story and eventually a GoFundMe to help the parents.
According to POPSUGAR, Austin wasn’t jobless for long after news spread he was offered not one but multiple job offers.
All is well that ends well. Lamar told the Concord Monitor, “Sometimes you lose something and you get something even better.”
“I didn’t expect this at all,” Austin continued. “I don’t really watch the news or TV, so when I started getting all these emails from people wanting to help, it was a lot to take in.”
