This is my first time on this site after joining and am having a hard time missing my son today. I have been crying off and on all day. He has been gone a month and I have only received his box and a form letter with no personal message. Is there anyone out there that I connect with in this division so that I can feel closer to my son? I would also like to know if anyone has any update on this ship and division. On the RTC facebook site others are saying they are receiving letters now and some have been getting phone calls this week. I have a sick feeling that something is wrong and that is why I have not heard anything. It is that mother feeling I have had all day. They say no news is good news, but this is drinving me nuts. I thought it was suppose to easier as time goes by.
here is the link to your PIR group. Here you'll get lots of info and support.
Right now the only thing you can do is write to your son and give him some encouragement. This is not an easy task for him and he will need your support. As parents we prepare our children to one day go out into the world as adults, however we never prepare for the separation. My son left on 1/31/12, I have recieved his box and nothing else. Still awaiting his form letter or a letter from him so I can write. I am dying to find out how he is making out. I don't even know his division or ship number and its been almost two weeks. This is very cruel to the mothers. Im sure or at least hoping your son is ok, have a little faith in him. He will call or write first chance they allow. Be patient most importantly be prepared for the call. As I said before he will need your support and I am sure he misses you just as much as you miss him.
