The Long Wait is Over, and He comes Home Soon!

August 28, 2009

The long year of praying and waiting is coming to a close. Justin will be coming home very soon and we can’t wait! It wasn’t long ago that he was back on leave, but this time he will be back on American soil…at least for awhile! We never know what the next thing will be, but our little ones will get to be with daddy again, and that is worth all the waiting.

I was thinking about our book We Serve Too!2 A Child’s Reunion Book, and feeling that though it is never easy to negotiate the changes in life, it sure helps to know you are not alone. We hope as we get our books into the hands of little ones, that this is something they learn. Soon we will be living some of the things in the book, and for now, we just look ahead to that still obscure date in September!

We have had two wonderful reviews lately. I am putting them here so that if you are considering our books for your own young ones, or as a gift, you can get opinions other that mine and Paula’s! If you want to get more testimonials, just check our website .

P.S. As I typed the final letter and posted this blog, the phone was ringing….He’s HOME!!!! Justin is back in the U.S.ofA.!  I can’ begin to tell you how happy I am, except to say that the hour and a half I just spent on the phone was like being a kid in a candy shop! I wish we all could have been there at his base in Virginia for his homecoming, but in two weeks, we will get our homecoming here in Colorado! WooHoOOO!!!!
