I lived in Franklin, IN for a few years when I was very young. Is it a good place to live??? Are there better suburbs? We own a house here and can't sell it to save our lives, so will probably have to rent if we move. And we have a 7 yr old son and 4 yr old daughter.
My husband is a union carpenter and is worried about work in IN in general. Any advice??
I am a medical biller, but working on my Bachelor's in Sociology, so I'll do pretty much anything as far as jobs are concerned.

Yes, my sense is that Franklin is a good place to live. However, I would see it as more of a small town near Indianapolis, as opposed to a suburb. There are Indy suburbs that offer a good quality of life, with good schools, that would obviously be closer to the central city. If you hope to have easier access to Toledo, then I would suggest a northern suburb that would allow you quick access to I-69.

Sorry, but I don't have any advice regarding your husband's employment prospects. Maybe others could help.

Might I ask....In what part of the Toledo area do you currently reside?

The popular and more established suburbs are on the northern end which include Noblesville, Carmel, and Fishers. Definitely the nicer suburbs, however, you can't go wrong with any around Indianapolis. Have you considered the suburbs of Fort Wayne?
