Erin met Jake almost two years ago after finding him on tinder. Greg and I were apprehensive, to say the least. But much to our surprise, Jake has proven to be exactly what Erin needs in her life. He balances her free spirit with level headed decision making. He likes lists, balanced budgets and detailed plans. She prefers to throw caution into the wind and see where she lands. We like Jake. Erin needs Jake.
Erin has always maintained we will find out after she elopes during a lunch hour someday that she is married but Jake says as an only child, a wedding is important in his family. Time will see how that shakes out, but they both contain the capacity to laugh through a lot. We pray they navigate life with humor and love well.
Welcome to the family Jake. We have been praying for you and already love you.
(P.S. Ty has done the math. Adding Jake and the baby this year will even out the numbers in our family. We will have five boys and five girls. Obviously this is good news.)
