In January 2000 I proposed to my then girlfriend, married her in March 2001, said good-bye to my father in 207, and had our first child in March 2010.

I went from an unhappy, tumultuous, cheating marriage, and divorce; to a wonderful and loving marriage that will be forever!

I've lost touch with my family, got in touch with myself and have finally started to really enjoy living life. Now I just need to work on getting in to a better career and continuing my education.
