You might recall Hubby and I were in Oahu for the birth of our first grandchild in March. Unfortunately, our son was only present via Skype and has gone two months without holding his child. He is a Marine and was deployed to Afghanistan in October, so he also missed much of his wife’s pregnancy. It takes special people to live the military life. True grit. The soldiers and their families not only have my gratitude, but my utmost respect.
As you’ve probably guessed, we have good news. My step-son’s unit is home and his family is reunited. Get out your hanky. Here are photos by family friend, Jillian Dazey (also a new mom) who did a beautiful job capturing the homecoming.
