- Wedding: June 2009
Dear Lisa, future daughter in law! I loved reading the story about the ring and the proposal. It is a bit weird to hear Ba* referred to as a "man" but that is what he is < I have always just referred to him as my son or Ba* but he is definitely a man. Before he was born I had been told I could not have children so to have conceived and he was born, I was truly blessed. I thought how wonderful to have a child. To be loved so unconditionally and accepted with all my faults was pretty amazing. Course he had no idea he was doing all that, it is just that I needed all that at that time in my life. Because of having a child, I began to look for a church and was led to First Baptist Church, Houston when it was downtown Houston. He was about 2 years old and from that time until he left for college that had been our church, even though Gh* was not a Christian when we married, he never objected to my going and taking Ba*. Then Na* was born and later Gh* did become a Christian. Lots of time has passed since our divorce and things have seemed to come full circle. I am so delighted for Ba* and you, Lisa. you certainly have brought him happiness and I think he has you as well. and wow! to get married in Australia! that will be so romantic and will have many sweet and happy memories for you both. Be blessed, grow in the Lord, and always remember your first days of love as a glue for the hard times. Much love and great happiness, *ricia

My first welcome to the family email from the FMIL.
FH’s family received an email from us tellng the story of the proposal.
They have all been told of the upcoming wedding. Of course, not one of them or my family is invited. We have chosen to walk this part of our life alone. We know that when hard times comes it will be just us.
I am just kind of happy right now.
I fell pretty lucky to get a good FMIL and a good FSMIL.
And since I don’t have a mom, it’s kind of emotional.
