I can’t put into words the feelings that overcame me the moment I knew for sure that you were finally home safe. I can honestly say that I didn’t believe it entirely until I found myself in your arms again. My heart pounded in my chest and I couldn’t hold back my tears when I saw one trickle down your cheek. I’m forever grateful to have you back here with us – hopefully for a long time. I have learned that being a military family means the possibility of you leaving again at any time. Fortunately, for that reason, we know how important it is to not take even ONE moment together for granted. I love you, welcome home Kyle!
