We are "baby poppits." She is mine and I am hers! Those are our our nicknames for each other. Laugh, we know, but we love it.
We met on Craigslist, believe it or not, and our first date was a blind one, to a certain extent, as we had never met in person. We were both nervous but excited because we had thrilling phone and email conversation. We ended up spending three hours chatting it up over a late night dinner. We didn't kiss that first night. I put Erica in a taxi to take her home and did a check-in phone call to make sure she was home safe.
After that night, we were both hooked! Our dates were the most romantic either of us ever had, including walks in Central Park, browsing at Williams-Sonoma, a very noisy bar on St. Patrick's Day and, of course, a bad Chris Rock movie. We took our time but fell in love instantly. We look forward to sharing our lives together increasing our family, and we understand fully that it will take our whole village sending and sharing love to keep us strong.
