My husband is stationed here at JBLM and I have yet to make any friends. I have a 14 month old son and am currently expecting a second baby boy in April. Would love to make friends for myself and my son.

Hi, I feel your pain. It is always hard making friends when you leave what seems like your whole life behind. Before I give you any advice, I would just like to comment on the love and support that a wife shows and gives her husband when she agrees to be uprooted for work promotions or opportunities. It is an unbelievably kind thing that you have done for your hubby and therefore should be up to him as well, when it comes to the whole friends thing. If you haven't already, talk to your husband about how you're feeling and let him see what he can do. he may be able to find another great couple.
As for you finding friends, it may seem like a long and daunting process but you will get through it. You'll be surprised how many friends you make through your children and remember that friend opportunities may be where you least expected them. keep open-minded and be ultra friendly. In the meantime keep in touch with family, relies and other friends you may have left behind. Good luck xx
