Letting go is so hard!
Posted By: Kristy Weersma 06-29-11
My son and his best friend shipped out on June 27th to San Diego. I'm so proud of them both for their honor, courage and committment however I do have fear of the unknown. Giving them those last hugs and kisses at the airport broke my heart. It was then that I realized that the toughest job a parent ever has is letting them go! I'm doing a lot of praying for every single parent and recruit going through this! We're still waiting for our 7 second scripted phone call and then in 3 months we will be out in San Diego to their Graduation. May God Bless them all and keep them safe!
