JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Parents have to make a lot of tough choices when it comes to raising their children.
First Coast News' very own Joy Purdy recently made one such difficult decision, as it was announced Thursday that she would be leaving the anchor desk to devote more time to her husband, step-daughter and two young daughters.
"I have been trying to figure out what to do at a crossroads in my life. I was recently offered the main anchor spot here at FCN, the 11 p.m. newscast. So exciting! However, after much prayer, and countless family discussions ... I've instead decided to take a break from work to spend time with my family," Purdy said.
On Friday starting at 5 p.m., First Coast News will take a look at difficult decisions like these that parents have to make at every stage of their child's life.
