DE­FENCE KIDS GET LONELY WHEN PAR­ENTS AWAY

Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE -

MY dad is in the army and had to go away for work. It feels lonely when my daddy is away. Some­times I cry at night be­cause I miss him so much. I get sad be­cause I don’t want him to go away be­cause I love him so much but he has to go for work.

It is dif­fer­ent when dad is not here. It feels like one spot is miss­ing, at the ta­ble, in the car or when we go to the movies. We are not a whole fam­ily when daddy is away. We still love him even though he is away. I am proud that he is in the Aus­tralian Army and he can help peo­ple.
