Update: Received My First 3 Letters!
Tonight, I had received a phone call from Ryan's mother. She wanted to know if I had gotten anything from him in the mail yet. I said no, but to my surprise she had said she had gotten her first one today. I was extremely overjoyed to hear that. So of course, I was excited to get to my mailbox and see if I had gotten one. Yet another surprise was awaiting me: I received not one, but three letters! My heart beat extremely fast and I was so overcome with happiness. It made all of that waiting worth while. He's doing good and is keeping an awesome attitude about things. I'm so proud of him! I couldn't be any prouder. :)
