Hi Kristi; hope you are doing well, and I think when our Sons are ready to call they will. I know my son does not like to show me the softer side of him, dont get me wrong he is a caring young man. When we dropped him off at the Rec Center on 2-2-2010 I was balling my eyes out and he came over held me in his arms and said "Mom, its okay dont cry I will be just fine" he gave me a kiss on the head and sasid see you later.
We will get our call, just hold tight to your phone. Looking forward to meeting all the Moms, Wifes, GF's Take Care
Hang in there, Kristi. Keep busy! I know I've broke down crying, just seeing kids about that age in camo gear. Everything makes me think of my son and miss him so much. Just think of how wonderful it's going to be to hold him again at PIR. It's coming soon. Do what you can to distract yourself. As they say - to kill time, try working it to death. Staying busy will make it seem to go faster. Hold on, we're here for you.
Thanks for the information. Its really helpful having someone to talk to and is going though the same thing. I know that i've said this a hundred times but i really hate waiting! I just want to hear from him!! But as soon i do i will let you know what he says and how hes going!! Thanks again for the help and the listening ear "typing hand"!!
