Proud beyond words!
Posted By: Annette Poe 01-03-12
My son left on November 28, 2011 to take his place on those yellow footprints. I spent ten years in law enforcement and 19 years being a single parent but let me say that this has been the single hardest thing I have ever done. Each letter that comes defines how homesick he is. I just want to hug his neck and tell him how proud I am but truth be known I don't know if I will be able to let go next time around. I should have bought him luggage for Christmas big enough to take me next time. I am counting the days till Graduation 02/24/12 and looking forward to holding my head high and saying "That's my boy right there"!
