S: Ben & Roshanda: Our Story
BC: I LOVE YOU!
FC: Ben and Roshanda
1: We met on July 15th, with a simple "flirt" on SingleParentMeet.com... and soon our relationship blossomed into something so full, so rich, and so exciting that we both couldn't help but talk about forever. | Nightly phone conversations led to dinner in Vidalia, then visits back and forth... Our love came naturally, and grew quickly. "Forever" won't be long enough for us.
2: My first visit to meet Sierra and Trey went better than I'd hoped for. From jumping on the trampoline to fishing, everything felt right.
6: Skype kept us going during those long weeks apart - we set some records driving to see each other, but spent hours talking face to face online.
7: The First Weekend with the Kids Together | We built a tipi, went to the beach, and watched the kids begin relationships.
8: Our First Photo Shoot | We didn't all match, but we looked really good together!
9: Random Photos from the weekend...
10: Making sure the kids "clicked" was easier than expected... | Maddie | Sierra | Trey | The "Gyroscope" at the YMCA
11: The second visit was full of fun, too... fishing, pizza, the fountain, ice cream and "Picnic in the Park."
12: Sierra began to show off her personality...
13: And "the girls," although a little hesitant, warmed up gradually. All our kids seemed open to Mom and Dad finding happiness with each other.
14: And we found that the digital age is embedded deep within our children... and we had to get them away from their gadgets to have some fun!
16: Bringing the girls to Fitzgerald - we watched them grow closer to each other while our own love grew.
17: Our kids seem to LOVE trampolines!
18: Plans for the future... | We talked about an ambush wedding, about living a life together that we both thought worth living... | I saved up for a ring... bought a stone and then fit it to a ring, made especially for you. | I planned to ask you to marry me, looked for the right opportunity, and asked you to be my wife. | And you said YES!
19: Forever won't be long enough... | To love you.
