Is anyone having as hard a time with the waiting thing as I am. Even more so since, several candidates with MOC noms are starting to get their BFEs. Honestly, my son is pretty good at finding other things to keep his mind off the wait, which is smart and I wish I could do that. I keep finding myself jumping on here to get any scrap of information that might be popping up. I just want to know where my kid is going to be so I (we...him and the whole family) can get prepared. I'm so extremely proud of him and I know he wants this with his whole heart and has for as long as I can remember and he has worked so hard to get to this point. And because, he wants this, I (of course) want it for him and have supported him 100% (like all the parents on this forum have done). We so want our children to reach for their dreams and succeed in all they do. And as much as I hope he gets that BFE soon, I know this isn't going to be easy for me. I just can't seem to get my mind around this kind of separation. He is my first to leave home and we are a really close family, like so many of you on this forum. If he were going to a college anywhere on the east coast (somewhere I could drive to in a day), I believe it would be a little easier for me to mentally and emotionally prepare for. Anyone else feeling this anxious. I'm hoping getting it out here and hearing from others will help me deal with the knots in my stomach.
