Alex goes from no job to work on Curtis Island
ALEX Beckman could not be happier - on Tuesday he took his daughter Lyla home from the hospital as a working man.
Alex and Jade Glen shared their story with The Observer on Thursday about how he was concerned he would not be able to provide for his family without a job.
Since then, he has been offered three and decided on a plumbing job.
"I start work (today) on Curtis Island," he said.
"I have secured a job that will be six days a week, 12 hours a day for three years. We won't have to leave Gladstone and our family."
He could not believe how bright the future looked for his new family.
"I was struggling to get one job and now I have two jobs I can't take," he said.
"It's funny because they came through connections and people I know recommending me."
The timing for Alex could not have been any better.
"Jade's water broke in bed on Sunday at 5am," he said.
"We were at the hospital an hour later and were all done by 10am. It couldn't have gone more smoothly.
"I couldn't be happier."
