I am crying right along with everyone else as I watch this. Thank you for letting us share in your moment of complete joy. Amelia is precious and her mama looks radiant! Welcome home, Rafe!!! and "Thank you."

Mandy said...

Awesome video! So exciting and touching. Glad you are all together again!

Every time I hear Amelia's voice on that video I want to cry. Just the sound of joy and relief when she says, "Mommy! He came BACK!" and I relive it all over again.

I love that too! I bet a lot of other kids in her situation with their dad being deployed so much of their 1st 3 years would be shy/timid at first, but she just runs into his arms and loves him so much. They have a great bond!

Laurie,

This is something I promise we will never grow tired of! Dear friends reuniting with their Marines will always hold a special place in my heart. I have tears streaming down my face & am just delighted that "he came back!!" to quote a certain little doll!

Hey Laurie,
It will never be boring I was crying and laughing along with you and Mia awaiting Rafe's return. My family watched it with me and I was the one bawling. I think because your "MC sisters" understand.. we will allways rejoice with you and cry with you over the ups and down this life style brings. With all my love- Connie Stay Semper Gumby =)

Laurie, this is such a special video, thank you for sharing it with us! Amelia is so sweet & this video tells us so much about how she loves her Daddy & how strong her Mommy is while he is gone. <3
