My silent soldier speaks!
I got an IM today from one of my adopted boys in Iraq--one I've been writing to since February but haven't heard from till today. I have to say, I got a little teary-eyed when I realized it was him. It's so great to "talk" to him and know he's okay. And get this--he's from Michigan, less than 2 hours away! He'll be home on leave in August and wants to take me out to dinner. He's such a wonderful guy!
