Hello Susan,

I just wanted to let you know how things have unfolded in the past few days and to also thank you for your good and thorough work in bringing together our family.

To say it has been a roller-coaster is probably the understatement of this century, but we are all grateful for the opportunity to be connected.

We have had phone conversations and have been exchanging photos and information.  It's a bit weird that her family knows all about this and we are just deciding how best to inform all of ours.  I think it might best happen at Thanksgiving when we will be gathered in one place... easier to get it accomplished in one setting and allow for discussion, questions, etc.  Her son will be home from Afghanistan for a couple of weeks then and she would like to skype with our family while he's there, so hopefully it will all come together.

I have wondered how many 'happy' endings you have experienced in your career and many cases, but hope that you are blessed by knowing this is one of them.  We cannot know why this has come to be at just this time, nor what the future holds, but I think I can say that we are all better for knowing and look forward to what is to come.

God Bless all of you.
