Me and my partner first met at work, he was one of my closest friends, he made me laugh, he had a big heart, he was my confidant and at times my partner in crime when the boredom of work got to much. We both have disabilities so we had something in common (although both of us on crutches was not always a good look on a night out!). The connection between us was instantaneous so I thought why are we just friends? It was not a decision I came to regret although our first 'date night' I did question what I was doing, it felt so awkward. But that is now but a distance memory and since that time there has been very little time over the last year that we have been apart. It became apparent fairly early on that our relationship was headed for something more serious than just dating. So in September of this year, James and I were engaged. Now the planning is under way to hold our wedding in 2016. Fingers crossed!
I am desperate to have a baby and being 34 I feel that time is running away with me but I am so set on doing it the traditional route and so desperately want to get married first. Hence the urgency of this appeal.
This is where you come in... James has been in University for the last year and isn't exactly raking in the dough. I am a teacher but believe it or not I'm making enough to be able to pay the bills and pay for the wedding at the same time.
I have never done this before so I'm not sure if this will actually work but I figure anything is worth a go. I just hope that there are some kind souls out there willing to help a complete stranger. I promise if there are to 'pay it forward' and when I can I too will help someone out.
Your kindness willalways be remembered.
