Son leaves today for bootcamp to Parris Island ..I'm having a hard time
Posted By: Naomi Nieves 01-08-12
My son is leaving for bootcamp today, I am completely heartbroken, I have never had him this far from me, although he lives 90 minutes away from me. I always had the option to call him and chat with him , and /or visit him. I guess my problem is that I have to let go and I don't know how, I worry immensely and I love him even more than that. I don't know what to do with myself, I know he'll be fine, but I am so emotionally exhausted I cannot think straight. I'm waiting on his last phone call to come before he goes to base in a few hours.
