Never met a man of his caliber until I was face to face with Chris. A father of 4 that is there for discipline when needed and to kiss boo-boos when the kids are hurt. A husband who prides himself on putting food on the table, a roof over our heads, a hug when I am down, a kiss when he walks into a room that I am in, a smile on my face when I feel like crying. I never thought that love like this existed until I met this man. My hero walked into my life, met the two kids I had from a previous relationship, and fell in love with all 3 of us. We had our youngest 2 children which completed the family we both wanted. The fact that he is a Marine only adds to the reasons why Chris is my hero, ultimately his heart is reason #1. I am so lucky that the hero that I fell in love with and that I look to for friendship fell in love with me as well.
