Not Another Blind Date!!!

Fall of 2007 was bad for me. I was nine months pregnant with my third child and the father had walked out on me six weeks before. My brother, Jim, knew that. At the time he had been working as an overnight security guard at a casino and knew one of his co-workers was having an equally hard time with the break up he had just been through. And thus the wheels in his head got to moving and decided that we should meet. Now I'd been through the whole blind date thing and it did not go well. I was reluctant to try it again but I knew Jim wouldn't hook me up with a bad guy. We met and started talking. Three weeks later he was holding my hand when my son was born. The first time I told him I loved him I was laying on a delivery table to the sounds of my son's first cries. Since then he's been a better daddy to my kids than their own father.
We'll be married two years now May 19th, and it's been the best two years of my life.
