- Wedding: August 2010
Got the news a few days ago, my husband is being deployed to Afganistan in march 2011. I want to think of the possitive acts of this like: We will have better medical insurence and he will also be making some money when he’s there. The bad unfortunatly out weigh the good so its hard to get past it. The baby is due may for one. I have two girls from a previous boyfriend and he just wasnt there during the births out of choice. Possitive: ive done the hole labor and taking care of newborns alone before. My husband and i met 2004 and we just got married 2010, then 1 month later i got pregnant. He is in the process of adopting my 2 girls from a previous.. they are ages 8 and 9 and they call him dad and everything. My husband will be missing the following:
1. the end of my pregnancy (when id need him the most)
2. Seeing the baby and holding the baby and all that comes along with that. he will get to see him/her about 5 months after the birth.
3. He will miss my oldest birthday again for the second year in a row (last april he was active duty in florida)
4. He will miss our first anerversary together.
I dont know what to do or say but all i want to do is cry. He seems to be fine with it, as if its life, but he doesnt really know what he’ll be missing/ and how much i need him here for me and the baby; that is what hurts the most. I know he cant help being deployed but being in deniel about what your going to miss out on doesnt help either. thanks for listening.
