When they were dating, he used to be posted in the countries like Afganistan for war. He was posted in Afganistan from 2004 to 2006. While he was posted there, it was very difficult for them to communicate. She shared,

“I’d finally gotten an email from my boyfriend, Shaun, with his mailing information. He’d been stationed in Afghanistan a month with the Army, and all I could do as Morale-Booster-in-Chief was answer the phone when he called, and encourage him to do his job.”

She would wish that Shaun comes back home in one piece. The couple maintained a long-distance relationship for three years.

“I feel blessed that Shaun evaded major trauma—both physical and emotional.”

She also shared that she has learned a lot from their long distance relationship,

“I learned I had the stuff to make it through tough times, and that kind of courage is indispensable. Over that year, we allowed ourselves to cry, to fear, to get nervous or jealous. If we hadn’t been honest about our feelings, our foundation would have been a shaky mess. But overall, that deployment was all about steadiness, courage, candor, and focus. And some major love, of course.”

The Proposal and Children

After Shaun came back, he proposed Anna. Of course, she said ‘YES!’

‘Shaun proposed to me the May after he came home. He served five more years in the Army Reserve, with no more overseas tours.”
