Earlier this year, one of our local photographers excitedly announced that her family had decided to add to their family through adoption. We were inspired when we heard how eager they were to open their hearts and home to a child in need of love and affection. Excited to cheer them on, we asked Amy if she was planning on having any type of local benefit.What Amy then revealed is something we imagine many service member families face.
KAIT HANSON, ONE OF OUR VOLUME II WRITERS, ASKED IF WE EVER RUN ‘REAL-LIFE EXPERIENCE’ PIECES AFTER WE EMAILED BACK AND FORTH A FEW TIMES ABOUT THE HAWAII MISSILE SCARE. AFTER READING SOME FACEBOOK ACCOUNTS FROM FRIENDS WHO WENT THROUGH IT, MY ANSWER WAS AN ENTHUSIASTIC YES. WHAT IS IT LIKE TO GO THROUGH A TERRIFYING EXPERIENCE LIKE THAT, AND HOW DOES IT CHANGE YOU? FOUR SERVICE MEMBER/VETERAN SPOUSES SHARE THEIR EXPERIENCES. -KIMBERLY BACSO
