Clare & I met during my Church Army training, when I had a 4-week placement at her church in Newchapel, Stoke-on-Trent. We hit it off straight away (with only 4 weeks, I had to move quickly!) and spent the next 2 years in a "long-distance" relationship where one or other of us would make the journey between Stoke & Sheffield at weekends. We got married in July 2000, shortly after I finished my CA training.
|Clare and Nathan|
Our 'gift from God' is Nathan (that's what his name means), born in September 2010. We really do think of him as our little miracle - we didn't wait for 10 years after getting married on purpose! It was a long, long journey for his arrival, and we are treasuring every moment with him. At time of writing, he is a little under 11 months old, he has been crawling for about a month, and loves being on his feet, cruising round the furniture. We don't think it will be much longer before he walks! Latest trick he has learnt is clapping, which he is very proud of!
