New navy mom here,
I've been reading the blogs of those moms who received the first call home and those who just said goodbye. It is comforting. My son ships out on July 15th and wonder if there are any other moms with that date also.
I am so excited for my Garret, but my heart is getting heavier and heavier as the days get closer. He is my baby of 2 and will miss him beyond words.
