half way

A recent photo of Greg. We are almost half way through this deployment! Thanks for all the prayers. He is working hard and counting the days until he comes home!

What a crazy awesome two weeks it has been. The Inquiry has now turned into a plane trip across the country to meet this incredible couple! We have spent the past two weeks emailing back and forth. Greg has also been able to email them from overseas. I was beyond nervous to tell them that he was deployed. Probably the most nervous I have ever been in my entire life. It is a part of our life, but I didn't want it to change their opinions of us and think that he would be an absent father. It was a huge relief when they wrote back to tell us that it did not change their opinions and that they respected his service to our country. PHEW! I can't explain the connection we feel to this couple. They way she describes the birthfather is the way I would describe Greg and their outlook on life and life's circumstances are so similar to us. My friend is going to stand in for Greg and in two weeks we will leave to go meet them! I feel completely and utterly blessed right now. It's a feeling I haven't felt in many years.
