He read the letter and was shocked to see that they decided to overturn the decision to terminate his employment and to accept Matt's resignation! All Matt needed to do is write an official resignation letter and mail it to HR. This will change the status in his file and if this is requested by the Army for his file then it will state that Matt resigned, nothing else! Such a blessing!
We're not sure if this decision would have been made if Matt had wished to re-enter the workforce at his previous employer. We're not sure if the fact that our baby was expected any day added a sympathy vote. We're not sure if Matt just presented his arguments extremely well and they saw reason. No matter what the reason for the decision to overturn his termination, we are thrilled that this was changed.
We're not sure why this happened at this time in our lives, but we worked through it. Thankfully, it has not negatively affected our relationship, our birth experience (possible stress), or the Army. So thankful this is behind us! God is good!
