In 1994, I would never have guessed where this birthday would find you. A grown woman now, married to a handsome Army medic...
...with a young blond stepdaughter of your own...
... and very proud parents back home.
As I write this, it is still Friday morning, September 3, here in upstate New York. But in four hours, it will be Saturday, September 4, in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan. I am posting this now so that you can wake up to happy birthday wishes and lots of love from your family back home.
With much love, Your proud Mom and Dad
