South Milwaukee, WI

Dana made the decision three years ago to stay home with her son as she could not bear the thought of putting him in day care after he came early. Dana ran her business out of her home during the day, and also worked part-time at home in the evenings, to avoid needing to pay for child care. Because Dana left her full-time job, she was able to cut the child care expense and then find ways to make-up for what she would have been making, or what would have been left of her paycheck at the end of the day.
