Amed and I met in 2001, when I went to Paris (where he was living at the time) on vacation. We hit it off immediately, and spent the rest of my time there together. We kept in touch, talking on the phone several times a week after I returned home. I went back to Paris several more times over the next couple of years, finally moving there in 2004. I lived there for a year, and a month before I came back to the States, Amed proposed. We filed the 129 f in November and are anxiously awaiting the day we can be together!
