Welcome Home!!!

This morning we all met at Erica's house at 5:00am to help out Carolyn and Erica at their husbands' homecoming! Both of their husbands were in Afghanistan with 2/7 (an infantry unit), Echo Company. Carolyn had her sweet baby girl Cailyn while Brandon was deployed, so I was privileged enough, yet again, to witness a daddy's first moments with his little girl (thank you for allowing us to share in such a special day) and I got to hear the amazing little squeals from Ashley and Kaitlyn as they saw their daddy and finally were able to give him a hug after 7 long months. I am so happy for you girls!!! Have a blast with your hubbies!
This has been a long and difficult deployment for all of the Marines in 2/7 and this is just the first company to come home. There are still more companies awaiting their homecoming, so please keep them and their families in your prayers. Sadly, there have been a number of casualties in 2/7...please keep the families of those marines in your prayers, as seeing all of their comrades come home, it's tough, but healing at the same time. My heart goes out to them!

These welcome home posts always put tears in my eyes. Glad that these wives and kids got their daddys back.
A big Thank you to all the marines from the bottom of my heart.
