Seeing and reading about the surprise reunions of servicemen and their families this morning took me way back to the birth of my first baby. His father was in the R.N. (So was I before we married, WRNS). After his birth at about 10 weeks old his daddy went on a long deployment and came home when he was 10 months old. I expected him to cry at this stranger but he went straight to him. Homecomings were always magical. Anyone else been apart from their partner for long periods of time?
