My fiancé and I have been through a lot- before we met and since we've been together. We are approaching our 5th year together this month (September). We met at the perfect time in both of our lives. We saved each other in different ways. Joshua was trying to get back into the swing of life after having to take his mother off life support suddenly and having two major spinal surgery when he fractured two vertebrae in his back. Luckily he was able to recover and walk, but deals with pain on a daily basis. I (Jamie) was overcoming trauma from an extremely abusive 10-year relationship. We discovered quickly that we were so similar (the same kind of weird, as we say). He patiently gave me support and strength to rediscover (and embrace) myself and supports whole-heartedly who I am. I've given him unconditional support, encouraged him to have hope, and love life to the fullest. We are best friends and share the same life goals. We are planning a uniquely themed wedding for 2016 and are paying for it ourselves. We want it to be a celebration of who we are with those who care about us, and celebrate our love for each other. We are falling short of our savings goal for it and need your help to make our dream day come true.
