Pamela and I met in the fall of 2003 when I was teaching English in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil. Things were great until I had to return to the U.S. without Pamela. In Jan. 2005 I found an opportunity to go back to Brazil and teach English in another city. Pamela and I visited each other (when we had the time and money), but always kept in contact by phone and the net.
In July I moved to Foz to be closer to my baby. Jan. 18 was our 1 year anniversary and the day I asked her to marry me...and she said yes!
