Our family is facing a middle-eastern deployment within the next 3 weeks. Their second child is to be born in 4 weeks. This came very unexpectedly and with less than 30 days notice. Your prayers are requested in a very big way.

I'm sorry kiddo. I will be thinking of your family.

Will the whole family be going? Can't they come here until that new baby is old enough to travel? That gets my vote.

The deployment would be for the husband only. No possibility of family going to a war zone. If it goes forward, daughter and babies will move home for the duration, but Dad will miss the birth and first 8 months of new baby.

Got word this morning of a possible delay in the deployment date. Your prayers are working!!! Keep them coming. We are told a decision will come within 5 days.

Delay was approved. He will be able to be home for the new baby's birth and a couple of weeks after that. Plan is for momma and babies to move back here for the time he is gone. I will love that, but would rather their family was together.

I am proud of my son-in-law for being the best at everything he does. He was hand selected for this mission.

Thank you for your prayers, please keep them up for all our military who serve us so well and sacrifice so much.

Wonderful news! I will continue praying for all our military and their families, and will say some prayers for a safe and joyous birth for the coming little one. smile

Having a military member in the family is definitely a point of pride but also presents unique and heart-rending challenges and a whole lot of worry. Be proud, wrap him up in prayer, and enjoy the kiddos and your daughter while they are there. All you can do. smile

Further South than I wanna be.
So glad they got the change in plans. I am so glad my SIL is in the AF. They are very pro-family and always work to see that dads are home for such events.

For reasons unrelated to the family situation, my SIL's deployment to Iraq was CANCELLED.

No one should ever doubt the power of prayer. Thank you everyone.
