Cyd Leslie, an Army specialist who has served in Iraq, Afghanistan and other posts abroad for the past year and-a-half, has only seen her daughterâ€™s steps on video.
The last time Leslie saw Cheyenne in person, she would take a few tentative steps and stumble.
So to finally see her walking, much less running, is nothing short of a miracle, a taste of everything her little girl will be able to accomplish in life.
For years, 24-year-old Cyd has been hoping â€œkids donâ€™t teaseâ€ Cheyenne and â€œwondering if sheâ€™s going to have a boyfriend.â€
But when Cheyenne bounded into her arms Tuesday night, she thought, â€œIâ€™ll never forget this feeling.â€
Whether they’re friends, family, or strangers, take a moment to think about and thank the men and women in the military who keep us safe and protect our liberty.
