Breaking news: Update
Nick and I have seen a lot of each other over the past few weeks and getting really close now. It’s been amazing getting to know him, he is such a gentle and kind person and a real keeper in terms of quality genuine, loving guy. Both our sons also enjoying getting to know each other so I am pleased to be able to tell you it’s going really well. Watch this space . . .
Debbie, what you did not know as it was not relevant at the time. Many years before my mum met my dad, she bore a daughter out of wedlock. Sadly circumstances prevented her from raising her little girl and the baby was adopted. My mum went on to meet my dad, they married and I and my two siblings were born. She never kept her first daughter a secret from any of us. Birthdays were always filled with prayer, thanksgiving and praise for this life and for God and life to keep her safe. Searching for her, proved fruitless.
Lance and my friendship grew. His first wife and he divorced because she was adopted and unable to locate her biological parents, she never felt complete.
We later discovered, this lady was the very same daughter that my mother had to give up for adoption! Only my mum had never given up hope and faith that they would one day find one another.
Needless to say, that our families re-united, a time for rejoicing and plenty of joyful tears. My sister has 4 siblings, all adopted. Incredible. We are now one huge extended family.
Feeling closure, my sister just remarried Lance, becoming my brother in law! And I am engaged to be married. Sounds complicated; my sister’s adopted sister’s husband’s youngest cousin. (In other words my brother in law’s youngest cousin).
All praise to our Father.
My sentiments exactly. I just was not convinced we had anything remotely in common. And I also did not think Mandy was my “cup of tea”.
Only to find out that we have so much in common and neither of our profiles had indicated that. Even our faith, we are on par.
We love spending time together, and we can during lock down as both of us are in the medical field. So we are blessed about that fact. We laugh so much and in the flesh we both feel that we could of missed out because of photos and profiles. Of course we are very attracted to one another not only in our characters but also spending time together, we see what others might not see. Beauty is special and very personal.
We are enjoying our relationship and look forward to what God has in store as a couple.
