Yesterday, Andrew received a call from his Sergeant give him the news that he will not be attending the MOS school starting in May. As much of a relief that this is in the present, it can only mean that he will be attending either the June-July session or the August-September session. If he were to be given orders for the June-July session, he would definitely miss the birth of Londyn... unless she came frightfully early, or heaven forbid- LATE! Yuck. We have hope that he will be sent in August, so he can be here for the birth of our baby girl. Also, if he were to go in August he would still be back in time to start school in the Fall. On top of that, Londyn and I could potentially travel out to North Carolina to see daddy for a couple of weeks while he is training. We are praying for Heavenly Father to provide us with the faith and strength to withstand the uncertainty. I am quickly learning as a new Marine wife that there are no guarantees in the military. As a military wife and soon-to-be mother, I know that these experiences can only make our family stronger and am immensely comforted to know that will be together for all eternity.
Another quick note that I'd like to share is that we found out that Andrew's former unit in Utah will be deployed August 3rd, 2009. My heart goes out to the families and especially the wives that will be affected by this deployment. They have been home only a year since they returned from a long 7 months in Iraq. This time, Afghanistan. I pray that those families, our friends... will have peace and comfort at this time.
