Hi my name is Amelia Grath, I am 24 years old I live in Forks Washington. I am married to Major Peter Grath, who is currently deployed in Iraq for his 2nd tour. We have been married for 2 years, for that certain period of time we have only spent a little over a year together. Over that certain period of time I conceived my beautiful baby girl Lillian Renee Mary Grath, I named her after my mother Renee Dwyer and Peter mother Mary Grath. I sadly had to give birth to Lillian on my own as Jasper was deployed at the time. But as soon as she was born I was already snapping picture of her to send to Jasper so he could at least see what she looked like.

Lillian is 8 months old and looks exactly like her daddy; she has big bright blue eyes with long eyelashes. She has blonde hair that she also got from Peter but has that slight wave that she got from me. I can already tell that she is going to be one hell of a heart breaker when she’s in school; Peter’s going to have a hard time keeping those crazed hormonal boys running after her. I could go on forev- being cut of my thoughts hearing Lillian cry I ran up to her princess theme room and picked her up rocking her back and forth. I began to tell her how her daddy is going to be coming home soon and how he can’t wait to meet to meet her. I also began to tell her that her daddy was away in Iraq trying to make us safe, he is a major I start to tell her before I can finish she’s already asleep in my arms. I set her down in her crib sighing happily as I head downstairs.

Peter is one of a kind he is my personal cowboy cutie well more like a walking Greek god. He would always be there to catch me when I fall; I am a bit of a klutz. Peter as I have said before is deployed in Iraq; it’s been 10 months since I’d last seen him. Sure we email and Skype but it’s not the same as him being with me physically. Peter is a Major and fighting for our country he is one hell of a warrior I could go on forever telling you every single detail about him- about us. I could start to feel my eyelids getting heavier as I fell asleep on the couch with my blanket wrapped tightly around me.


I’m home, I’m finally home. Hi well I guess I should explain myself. I am Peter Grath, 25 years old. I have an amazing wife named Amelia and a beautiful little girl whose name is Lillian and she is 8 months old. The thing is I have not met her only seen pictures of her, let me tell you why, I was 23 when I was enlisted for the army I am a Major and currently finished my second tour in Iraq. As you can see my family and I can finally be together. I have a bit of a surprise for my Bella my enlistment if up so I am done and I get to stay home forever.

The cab just pulled up to my home I quickly paid the cab driver before running to the front of my house trying to be quiet as its 2 o clock in the morning and Amelia and Lillian should be fast asleep. I unlocked the door trying not to make so much noise and as I shut the door and rounded the corner to the living room I saw my beautiful Amelia sleeping. I walked up to her kissing her cheek slightly causing her to stir. I quickly started to go upstairs and head to my baby girls room. As I open the door I finally see her all I could think is WOW she’s beautiful I’m going to have a hard time keeping the boys away. I carefully picked her up and started to rock back and forth and starting humming a lullaby as a small smile danced across her lips. I couldn’t stop myself from grinning that’s until I hear a quite gasp and then a strangled sob. I quickly put down Lillian without a sound and turned around and saw Amelia . She had a look of pure shock, love, excitement, adoration on her beautiful face. She ran full speed to me and jumped me, wrapping her legs around my waist. I whispered that it’s going to be all okay.

“I missed you my beautiful Amelia.” I replied with a hush tone trying not to cry myself.

“Your back, your back, your back.” Was all I could hear before she breaks into another round of sobs.

I think it’s time to tell her.

“Baby my enlistment is up I’m home for good no more going back it’s just you, me and our beautiful daughter Lillian.”

And I knew at that moment everything’s going to be perfect nothing could ruin my life any longer.
