Hi my name is Tara

I have 1 child my son Shawn has been in the Air Force for 11 years now and he has always been close to home. He will soon be pcs. I am not handling it very well. He is married and I have two beautiful Granddaughers 4 and 2..Shawn is my only child and I raised him as a single parent since the day he was born. I am proud that my son has choosen the Air Force for his career he follows in a long line of many military family members. He has not choosen his base yet however this is being worked out. I was just wondeing how other Mom's have dealt with this. Any information would be helpful..

I am an AF wife and was raised by just my mom. I lived with her until I was 26. I also have her only grandchild. My husband and I have been married for 6 years and my son is almost 4. I STILL cry every time I have to take my mom to the air port or she drops me off to get me on a plane. EVERY SINGLE TIME. I can't help it. I miss her every day and we talk via the IPad on FaceTime at least once or twice a week. It's hard but it is what it is. We survive and visit whenever we can.

Most of us haven't been anywhere near our families for many, many years.

You just deal with it, because you have to. You were lucky to have him close by for this long. Most of us aren't so fortunate. We went 8 years without seeing my husband's parents at all. They don't really know our daughter, she doesn't really know them.

it was hard, but I knew I raised him to be an adult.

plan lots of visits and know that it is not forever :)

How wonderful that you were able to live near him for so long! I know it's hard to see them move away, but it will be a great life experience for them.

 Just be glad he was near by that long, maybe it will happen again. Think of it as Yay new place to visit and not pay for a hotel

Hugs!  Hopefully he won't be too far and you can visit without too much trouble.
