Can you imagine being away from your children for a few days? It might sound like a nice break, but how would you feel if you were away from your child for a few months? What if you missed their birth? It’s hard to imagine, but so many military families are living everyday without their loved ones….missing those special moments of a first smile, a first step, a first lost tooth. I honestly can’t imagine being away from my children for a long period of time and I respect and look to those military families in awe each day. I’ll never forget flying into Atlanta once and having the chance to watch a military families reunion. It definitely brought me to tears and I’m glad I was able to see if because it made me even more thankful to our military.
Dove Men+Care has partnered with Operation Homefront and their goal is to reunite 300 military families. Watch this video of John meeting his newborn son for the first time after being away from his family for seven months. You may want to grab a few tissues before you watch the video!
I started buying Dove Men+Care for my husband a few years ago. We use a variety of Dove products in our household and I’m so happy to hear that each purchase helps support Dove in its mission to care for our troops with Operation Homefront. I absolutely love this initiative and can’t wait to hear more heartwarming stories like John’s.
