I hope everyone is having a wonderful Thanksgiving. I was until I saw a message from my plebe saying those words that every parent dreads hearing. He wants to leave USNA. I am still processing this, but I cannot think straight right now. I could tell he wasn't loving it, but he said he was alright. I know DS is looking at all of his friends home for the holiday and missing home, but I live too far and my budget is too tight for him to come home until Christmas break. At this point, I'd rather go visit instead of have DS come home. My heart is sinking right now. Suggestions are welcome.
