Such a sad photo :((((((( Hugs Corey!

I can imagine how YOU feel because the photos made ME cry. Call your mom...she went through the same thing when you moved to France. You might have to call her 10 X a day for awhile.
May God hold you tight in his loving arms.

Oh my, i thought he wasn't leaving til the 13th...Blessings for a safe journey, Sacha! Thinking of you Corey. (Go visit my daughter in Sicily, i said my goodbye in July...) Darn kids, why do have to grow up!? 💕💕💕

A wee pat for the cat on the way out ; )
Keep busy XX

The second photo is heartbreaking. 😢

Oh Corey, you look so sad! He'll be back. And when you visit him you can come via Los Angeles. ;-)

The luggage photo is sad...love the kitty.

Sending my love and blessings for a safe journey for Sacha! May all of you be filled with the knowledge that love knows no distance and may this chapter be filled with abundance and laughter!! Yes there is sadness in the photos and there is so much love!!

ME TOO!-crying for everyone even though it is a happy event-so heart wrenching....

I saw that too- a tender heart-

OH COREY....

Not much can help this kind of heartache. I still feel that my son is my third arm and when he's not nearby, the absence aches. You've brought up Sacha to be an independent, adventurous adult and that happiness might just outbalance the sadness, a bit. And he's opening up a new part of the world for you to explore via him or in person when you visit home in the U.S. Here's to his safety and prosperity wherever he goes.

Sending you hugs of comfort. I recently chatted with your mom when I stopped by the shop about how she felt when you left for France. I can't even imagine being that far from a child of my heart.

Sending you lots of love today - just remember - he's only a phone call away - and a dam good reason to visit frequently!!

Have you been checking online flight schedules to Seattle already?

Love Sacha giving a skritch of Adieu to Le Chat!

Thank goodness for skype, email, and phones. Are you planning a trip soon? Empty nesters...do parents ever prepare for that day? Hugs.

Love, hugs & prayers Corey from Australia 🙅🙅🙅😢😢

Dear,Corey. Sending you a big hug!!! xoxo

Corey, our hearts ache for you, such beautiful tender photos to cherish. We are all thinking of you. Safe travels Sacha. He's a loving son who will be in touch daily I'm sure. That helps a lot you'll find. Sending love. Xx

I thought of you yesterday. One mother's heart to another...

Hugs to you and Yann....

Ali

That last photo says it all...saying goodbye to the cat! Tears in my eyes as I feel the empty place in your heart.

Oh Corey
Hugs to you and Yann and of course Sacha too. He maybe didn't show It...I bet he is full of emotions too.
Now this gives you reason to come to the USA more often. My guest room is open for you anytime~

Oh the pain you felt! You still have all of us😍

This post brings back every raw emotion I had when my own son left home so far away.
Big hugs for you all. Brave journeys for your family.
Blessings for Sacha and for you all

Love Jeanne

Oh Dear Corey thinking of you. My Mom once told me that your children really never leave you ❤️

Parting is such sweet sorrow....someone once said that. Sad photos but lots of new experiences to come....best wishes to you all from NZ

You did a wonderful job as a Mom! That's why he has the strength to follow his dream!

No words, just hugs.

My dearest Corey, sending you love and blessings. So glad our hearts are big enough to hold a whole lifetime of sweet memories to draw on when we need too!

Sending hugs and support! The leaving process is so hard!

i have a similar picture of my son on the first day of school. he was both excited and forlorn. he is now 30 and living in san francisco and i wish i had a picture of him leaving home the second time...he loves his life and i wouldn't change anything but still am mom's heart...

Sweet memories now must be your daily comfort as Sacha spreads his wings and flies high with his dreams ever so far from home. Prayers for you all to grow in ways to communicate and keep connected as now a new page in your family story begins to get markings.

Oh dear Corey, such heart wrenching photos. Hang in there, this too, well get better...Lots of hugs to you...from Bonnie in Wisconsin

adding another layer of richness to your life, sasha that help make up the quilt of your mother's and father's wonderful life...

love and embrace you all..

thank you for adding so much color to my life as well..

Dear Corey,
I know you are praying for us here in Miami, thank you! I am praying for you because I can feel your sorrow in that heart-wrenching photo.
Knowing that he is following his dreams is the flip side that will bring happiness to your heart. ❤️
You have many friends around the world and we all love you very much!

Ana María

(((hugs))) to you. There's nothing comforting to say here because it's just a wrench. Thinking of you at this time.

You are all so lucky you love each other so much that you can feel this deeply about parting! I just remember, both when I started university and when I graduated and moved to Chicago, being so glad to have a chance to escape and really be me! That was long enough ago that, at least in my family, even long distance telephone calls were rarely made and we relied on handwritten letters. Now you can keep in touch so many different ways and I still think this will be an excuse for you to visit the States more often. Best of luck to Sacha in his new adventure and thank you for sharing your touching photos.

BIG HUGS! Wishing Sacha the most wonderful experiences life has to offer...Teresa

Made me cry. I know this is so hard. He is on a new adventure and you will see him soon. I know it's not the same. You have given him both roots and wings.

A hug to you. He is a 10 hour air plane away.

CE SOIR JE PLEURE ET POURTANT JE NE VOUS CONNAIS PAS, SI PEU.
CE SOIR CE DÉPART ÉLARGIT LES RACINES DE L'ARBRE DE VIE.

DANS CETTE ÉTROITE RUELLE
LA DERNIÈRE PHOTOGRAPHIE DE CE JEUNE HOMME TOURNE VERS UN VASTE AILLEURS,
TOURNé VERS LA LUMIÈRE AU BOUT DU CHEMIN,
LA MAIN TENDUE VERS LE CHAT, PRÉSENCE APAISANTE ET RÉCONFORTANTE DU QUOTIDIEN,
LUI LAISSANT PEUT-ETRE UN MESSAGE POUR VOUS,
EST TRAVERSÉE DE COURAGE ET DE TRISTESSE.
LE CONTRASTE DU NOIR ET BLANC DONNE LA TONALITÉ AUX SENTIMENTS QUE J’ÉPROUVE,
DU RESPECT ET LE SOUHAIT DE POUSSER SES BAGAGES.
ET CE SOIR COREY, PERMETTEZ MOI DE LUI DIRE " ALLEZ SACHA, AVANCE !"

Every little thing is gonna be alright, Mom.

Been away from blog land for a few days. Opened this up and taken by surprise with a run of tears. Sharing your goodbye brought back all the goodbyes given to our three sons. The joy of having them and the heartache of watching them fly cannot be avoided. So we cry and move on with life. Much to be thankful for and you have MUCH to be thankful for. You raised a fine son, who is now a man, finding his path. You have prepared him well but the sting of "goodbye" is still there. You know all this though. And so the cycles of life come around. We've been given a beautiful day here and I most certainly know you have been given one there! Go and enjoy it, make the most of it and spread some love around. Thinking of you. . .

How hard it is letting them find their wings...thinking of you lovely. x

I've been dealing with this aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in Houston, just saw your post. My heartfelt wishes for you all as Sacha starts his own life journey.

Sending love from across the Puget Sound from where your boy-man is now.

Such touching photos of your personal moment. Thank you for sharing it with us. I will remember you and your family - and of course Sasha in my prayers!

Corey...My computer has been on the "fritz" so I just now saw that your baby is leaving home...where is he going and for what reason? School? Job?...I am so sorry...the second photo says it all...May God bless him on his journey and give him safe travel...When my baby got married and moved 30 miles away I felt he had gone to the moon..so I totally understand as ALL mothers on here do. God's Blessing to you and Yann..
