Hugs to you mama! Our son left August 11th, so not too long ago. It was a time of so many emotions; proud of what he was setting off to do, sad that the past 18 years went by so fast, scared that we now have to trust that he himself and the military will take care of him and keep him safe, grief that he was no longer going to be living in our home, and then most of all, the feeling of "I was not ready" to let him go but also ready to let him go. It can be a roller coaster of emotions. I miss his face, his voice, his sense of humor, and all the shenanigans that went on in our house.
I am wishing all the best for your daughter!! I am also praying for strength for you as it definitely takes strength as a parent to move through this process. I am glad this site is available for us. My son's Petty Officer told me about this site and I am so thankful that he did!
