Answer to question #1

The question asked by West Texas Wife was " How did you and Kyle meet?" That is a real good story. I met Kyle in high school but he was a nerd and a guy I would never date. He was a good friend but not my type.(yet)....We went our separate ways, Kyle to the military me into the world of trying to be a grown up. I got married and had Gerry my oldest. The marriage was a flop and the best thing out of it was Gerry.

I filed for divorce and moved back to Childress in with my grandparents, who basically have raised me since the age of 5. The divorce was final and many months went by. My priority was my child, not dating, and when and If I ever dated again it would have to be someone who could love me and my son. I was determined I would not be like all the other families I saw around town who loved having a boyfriend and put their children second.

At the time I wasn't attending church. matter of fact my mother has had me everything but catholic so my faith was a little shaky you could say. I still always had faith that God heard my prayers. I prayed one night for God to send me a man who would love us both and support us and be the man in our lives. Three weeks later, Kyle calls me up out of the blue. We hadn't been talking, he had been back in Childress a short time as well, so I really hadn't seen him around. I agreed to go on a date( a friend date to get a break from single parenting)........

We kissed sparks flew.........kissed is all we did. We started dating , and 7 months later he asked me to marry him. I said yes. That was one a Sunday afternoon , we got married the following Friday, which was FRIDAY THE 13th . That is still our lucky day. We have been blessed to have celebrated 15yrs. & on March 25th of this year we renewed our vows. It is so awesome when God brings you the man of your dreams and you know it is blessed. Gerry's first time to say daddy was to Kyle, and Kyle legally adopted Gerry when he was barely 3.We have a blessed family There's your answer.........
