A Daughter's Anticipation
Sometimes, kids will surprise you. Army wife Jules said, "I didn’t think my 2.5 year old would understand that we were picking up her daddy, but she was just as excited as I was. She held her sign proudly and waited (not so patiently) for her daddy to come across the field.

Her eyes were wide with excitement and joy when she finally saw him. When he scooped her up, she proudly displayed her sign and hugged him. All the hardship and sacrifice seem worth it when you are reunited as a family."
