We met online in February 1997, before finding your true love on the internet was fashionable (or even wise).
The story of how we met and courted is detailed elsewhere on this site, but we both look back in amazement at
how we both absolutely knew it was right. A little more than a year later, we became a family; the wedding
took place on May 2nd, 1998. There was little fanfare, and it was a relatively small wedding, with a few
family and friends. The wedding and reception were both held at the
Serenbe Bed & Breakfast
in Palmetto, Georgia. The B&B is a working farm and conference center, and it was very peaceful.
In 2003, we were a family of three as we became legal guardians of Faith Marie. She came to us from a
home life that was virtually non-existent, and we are thankful every day for the joy she brings to us. Her
laugh is infectuous, her energy is boundless, and her love is irreplaceable. In January 2006, the
adoption was final.
May 2006 saw the arrival of Aine Rose, the baby Christi had been waiting for all her life. Aine is
bright and full of life, and overwhelms us all with love and wonder with each beautiful smile.
