Amy and I first met at her graduation celebration. A friend of hers brought me on what I thought was a date, “Let’s go to this friend’s party, it will be fun.” Soon I saw the purpose of the trip. She wanted to introduce me to Amy, thinking we might be a good match. Boy, was she right! From the first moment I saw Amy I was entranced. She was so full of life and joy. I barely talked with her at the party but I was definitely intrigued.
A few weeks later I put out an appeal at church for some help with the youth group. Amy responded and we decided to go to dinner to discuss the youth program. The little Mexican restaurant in the heart of Detroit was a romantic place and the planning session turned into a melding of hearts.
