Joining the Air force


Hello all

I am currently in the process if joining the air force. I made the decision to join in June but just finally took the picat and did my application. I am to meet with my recruiter tomorrow to go to MEPS. I scored an 85 so my recruiter wants to try and get me into a specialty job. Now I'm a little reluctant to do this because I notice all the specialty jobs training is 6 months or longer and I have a son and in just not so sure about being away from him for that long. Does anyone have any advice or was in a similar situation what did you do?
