Rey & Eliazar
Growing up in a world of music, noise and sounds, I had no idea where my love life would end up taking me. Little did I know cupid had his arrows ready, aimed and with our names on them. His name is Eliazar. He is completely deaf, and with a lot of patience, love and determination he taught me sign language and welcomed me into his life and his world. We've been together now for 2 years and still going strong. We'll soon be starting a new life in California, and he is everything I could ask for.
Jolie & Natalie
When I met Natalie I was a single father. She was quick to accept my kids; that is not the only thing Natalie has come to accept. I had a secret when we met that I was scared to share with anyone. My name was Joseph when we first got together, but Jolie was who I was. Now that she knows the real me, we have found real love. I am blessed to be married to a woman who knows what true love is!
