Waiting for my new boy from far away

This is Sam posting from Camp Bondsteel, Kosovo, right outside the city of UROSEVAC/FERIZAJ (the first name is Serbian, the second is Albanian). Instead of being with my wife today as she gives birth to our second son, I am sitting at a computer waiting for text messages to give me updates. As I type, she is going in for a C-section. I got to talk to her once for about 5 minutes during the entire delivery. I don't get to greet my boy into the world for another couple of months (time unknown). It's a great time to be a soldier.

You probably already now, he's born!

And, hey, I'll take some photos and videos and upload them ASAP. I know it is not the same as being here, and I was really looking forward to picking you up... but I'll send you what I can.

Hang in there, man.

Oh, Sam my heart goes out to you. I wish there was something that could bring you that comfort that is needed. But well... as you know words don't usually add up to much. So, I'm sorry. You are on my families heart and mind. We will be praying for all 4 of you guys and gal.
love Weavers

Sam, despite these recent frustrations (which will pass), please accept my heartfelt congratulations!
