Hello everyone. I'd like to start by thanking you for taking the time to read our story.
All I have ever known in my life was pain and heartache. Going all the way back to childhood. That is until I met David. We met in 2011 while I was fleeing from an abusive relationship. I didn't believe in love and I didn't believe that a man would ever love and respect me. By the time I met my fiance I had 2 little girls that I was raising alone. And all I had ever experienced was abuse in relationships. So my expectation was that I'd be hurt by him as well. Over the last 6 years this man has shown me love that I never knew existed. As well as being a father to my girls...the only father they know. One set of circumstances or another drove us apart. Miles apart. But we have always found our way back to each other. And no matter how far apart we were..He always remained in our lives. I am a firm believer that God intended for us to be together. A little over a year ago we connected again and made a promise to stay together and not long after He asked me to be his wife...and I said YES! We set a date and I started planning a small wedding. We have had to postpone 3 times due to financial issues. I am a stay at home mom and My fiance was laid off unexpectedly. It took a while to get back to a point where we can start saving and planning again. And we want so badly to walk down the isle and become a family. I have never been a materialist woman. The life I have lived has taught me to be thankful for the little things and that love should not be based dollar amounts. We are planning a small wedding because neither of us have alot of family or friends. I am not interested in a big fancy wedding. I have often told my fiance that I would go to the courthouse in my sweats and I would be the happiest woman alive because at the end of the day we will be husband and wife. We are considered a low income family even with my fiance working and we struggle everyday to make sure our girls have what they need and are taken care of. It will be hard to save what we need and that is why I am hoping to get a little help. Please know that It is not in my nature to ask for help, so this is kind of hard to do. Please keep negative thoughts to yourself. If you can't donate, thank you again for reading our story. Please share with a friend and say a little prayer for our family.
