Hawkster and I met in August 2006. I had been online for 3 weeks and he had been online 2 months. We were in two different states and quickly became friends. He would send me cute cards and little smiles. At one point we decided to meet so in December 2006 we met. We have been together ever since. He and I are planning on getting married as soon as possible and as soon as I can move to where he is.
**UPDATED July 25th, 2007**
I just wanted to give you an Update. Jacob and I are getting Married September 29th 2007.
‘I was standin’ at the end of my rainbow, with nowhere to go and no pot of gold in sight.’ These words from the country song ‘Not A Moment Too Soon’ described my feeling perfectly until I met Laura. Our story began when Laura and I first came in contact back in late July of 2006. She was the one to make the first contact by sending a smile. When I received her smile, my first reaction was ‘oh, how nice of her.’ As I always did, I sent her a smile in return and as they say ‘the rest is history.’ That was the start of the greatest dream to ever come true.
From the beginning, I always knew there was something very special about Laura. I had very little success in even going on dates up until that time in my life. You see, I am a quadriplegic and have been since I was hit by a car at the age of three. I had come to terms with the fact that I probably wouldn’t marry in this life, and it was very hard on me. I had, for all intents and purposes, given up on trying to find her. Because of this, I had come to learn to simply be a great friend to those I met, and not have expectations beyond that. At the time, Laura needed a good friend and I was trying to be that for her. After e-mailing back and forth several times, the interest in each other began to grow deeper. We soon started instant messaging on ldsmingle any time we saw each other online. I honestly could not wait to talk to her each time. It was in late September when I first told her that I loved her. I thought she might think I was some weird-o for saying that since we hadn’t yet met in person. I was wrong, however she at first thought it was more of a friendship love rather than a true love. A few weeks later she told me that she loved me as well. I had a hard time believing at first that anyone would want to love me. Could I be so lucky? Could Laura be an answer to my prayers? My circumstances are such that most people don’t want to deal with them. Laura’s love for and interest in me was so great that she did her ‘homework’ so to speak on my particular spinal cord injury, so she could understand me better. So, we had talked about meeting in February for the first time, however our love had grown so much that we couldn’t wait that long. I decided to fly her out to Arizona (as it is difficult for me to fly) on December 15th of that year. We were both extremely nervous (she even drove around the block once before coming to the house). The weekend turned out great. From then on, we haven’t been able to deny our love for each other, and it has been hard living so far apart.
We have had hard times along our journey, particularly with my family, but from that point in late September/early October, I knew I wanted to marry Laura. Actually, we both knew before this life, it just took us a while to remember. I am continually amazed by her strength, sincerity, compassion and love for me. She could have had any guy she wanted, and she chose me. I ask myself every day why I am so blessed to have her in my life. My Heavenly Father has truly blessed me, and I am eternally grateful that Laura is a part of me. I love her very much, and as we are sealed in the house of the Lord, it will be the continuation of our own fairy tale. We truly are, in the words of a certain country singer, ‘Livin’ Our Love Song’.
