First breath by phone!

My husband, Lcpl John Rogers is in Iraq with 1/8 Weapons CO(USMC).  He left on June 22 for his second tour of duty, and I was 8 months pregnant with our little boy.  John obviously missed the birth on July 25, but thanks to a satellite phone, he was able to hear his child take his first breath and cry his first cry.  It was so hard on all of us for him to miss such a special thing.  He will not see our son Avory until he is 6 months old, if they come home on time in January.  I want to thank all of the troops who are sacrificing so many precious moments, and also thank their families for all of their sacrifices as well.  Keep your heads up!
