Thanks so much for considering us. Mike and I have been together since we were teenagers. After being friends for about a year, and with some encouragement from his boys Mike finally asked me out on our first date. We went to the mall and he bought me a shirt that I still wear from time to time. That was 12 years ago and we have been together ever since. In that time we have had a 4 year old that drives us crazy : ). Again thanks for considering us.
