I can only begin to imagine the heartache this dear family is experiencing, and although you may not know them personally, I felt led to share their story with you.
To those who know us personally, it isn’t a surprise to know we’ve been struggling. The move from Active Duty to civilian life has not been an easy experience. There have been more bumps in the road than either my husband or I ever expected.
