im not a mom but i am a girlfriend of one of the ship 12 div 098 boys <3
i've gotten lots of letters and 2 calls, he says that they are all finally starting to work together as a team, which im sure is tuff when you all go in as strangers, so that is so wonderful! i am so proud of my sailor and you should all be proud of yours as well :D 30 days left!!!!!! im seriously excited beyond belief to see him! we have never been apart for more than 2 weeks(one time and on the phone constantly) for the past year so this was a HUGE change for the both of us! i am lucky to have support from his family as well as my own!
if any of your sailors have boyfriends or girlfriends try to include them every once in awhile it makes them feel so welcomed and loved( really shows that they except you into the family!) also gives you both something to do while the man/ women you both love so dearly is away!
Hello Carlyann- My son also has a girlfriend and they have been together for over 2 years. It has been very hard on her as well as me. She is a part of our family now and we make a point to include her and talk to her every few days. Even my son said in one of his letters to please text her everyday so that she doesn't forget him!! If you would like to message me if you have a facebook maybe the two of you can talk. I tried to get her onto this sight but I don't think she has, but she does do the Tuesday Trivia on the facebook sight.
thats so great! looks like our boys are in the same ship/ div!! :) i will do that!! do you have you FB link here?
ITS FINALLY MARCH <3 so now we count down to the big day!
Hey, I also have a boyfriend SR, and his family is amazing! His parents are extremely supportive of our relationship, as our mine, it has really helped these past few weeks. Our 2 year anniversary was the two days after he left and like you carlyann, we haven't gone long without talking to each other. It's so strange now that my phone doesn't go off every few minutes with a text message from him, so different from these past 2 years. My boyfriend is in Div 97, so not the same, but that's ok!
