'Each day brings us closer to seeing him again'
This is a picture of my husband, Sgt Justin Moxley, and our then 2 week old son Ryan. Justin is currently deployed in Iraq from the 3rd ID at Ft Stewart, GA. We were blessed enough to have Justin home on leave when our son was born in August. This picture is the last time my husband was able to hold our son until he comes home next year around the time Ryan turns 1 yr old. It is hard to have him gone while missing so many of Ryan's milestones this first year, but we know that he is doing a good job where he is and each day brings us closer to seeing him again. We want him to know that we are so proud of him and that we miss him and love him so much! We can't wait for him to be home with us again!!!
