I Heart Faces - Week 3

This week, the theme at I Heart Faces is "We Are Family!" Let me tell you...this is a theme near and dear to my heart.

My brother is a pilot in the Army, and part of his job includes being deployed. He has been through several deployments, and his most recent deployment was to Iraq. He has two young sons and a wife who sacrificed being away from their daddy/hubby for an extended period of time. Just last month, he returned home to his family who eagerly awaited him in the airport at 10:45 at night. Their reunion was priceless...what a joyful and emotional moment it is to witness the homecoming of two young boys' daddy/hero.

God bless all of our men and women who serve in the military!


Head on over to I Heart Faces for more great photos of families!!!

Courtney, When I clicked over from your comment on my blog, i first checked out your other post about driving down to welcome your brother home and thought, "Oh, she should have entered that black & white one in I ♥ Faces' contest this week."
