"Happy Mother's day to all of you! My daughter participated in a video with her in it from Guam. I cried when I saw it on Facebook. She was crying also. I sure do miss her. Praying we all get to hug our babies soon."
I see you recently joined the Moms of Daughters 2 group and I want to welcome you!! So sorry it has taken me so long to send this to you but my husband and I are traveling and I don't always get on my computer. But I'm glad you found us! We are a close, friendly, supportive group of Moms and look forward to getting to know you and your sailor. Please feel free to jump in and join our conversations on our group page. You can ask any questions you may have, talk freely about your feelings, fears or concerns, or just chat about life. We are all in different phases of our daughter’s Naval careers - from newbies to those whose daughters have been in for several years - from officer to enlisted!!! We support all our sailor girls and each other as well. Not just during the Bootcamp days but the weeks and months following, as they go off to school, first duty station, or first deployment. Let us support you when you're missing her, lend an ear when you need to vent, and celebrate with you when you want to brag!! Again, Welcome Aboard!!!!!
Hi Mamabear wanted to personally thank you for the Hugs and prayers. It really took us all including him by surprise, I was more worried about him because its new to him and he is learning as he goes. So thank You,
Your welcome anything I can do to help. I didn't have that, I had to research everything just to make our trip with no hassles so I am pretty good at navigating around. LOL! I just want you to enjoy your Loved one! That's what it's about, with no worries. Have a Great Day!
