    Glad for!

    Is this sentence correct?

    I am so glad for your return.

    This doesn't sound natural to me. We are normally "glad for someone", meaning that something nice has happened to the other person and that makes us happy.

    You got a place at Oxford University?! I'm really glad for you.
    He finally bought his first car. I'm very glad for him.

    With your sentence, I would say "I'm so glad you have returned".
