Thinking back 11 years ago to when my husband began the police academy, I had no idea what our life was about to be like. Our life was about to change in so many ways and at times, I felt blindsided by it all.
We didn’t have anyone “filling us in” about the law enforcement lifestyle and gosh, it was so needed. I needed someone to talk to, to ask questions to, and I am sure my husband could have needed it also.
My husband and I did have several families that were extremely supportive to us. We mostly just hang out with them on the weekends or when their shift had days off. It was helpful, but I don’t think I asked many questions. I wish I had, but you know what they say about hindsight.
