Craig & I have been together around 3 years. We were both in unwelcome positions in our lives when we first met, more looking for friendship then dating. Craig had unbelievably not long lost his wife and mother to his five children, the youngest at the time being 4-5 years old.
I knew it was a lot to take on. Not only the grief they were all going through and still do, but also trying to parent 5 children as a step mum.
Three years on and we are still going strong. I am his back bone and he is my calm, keeping me grounded and we have both now got a beautiful daughter together, Summer-Rose. It would be lovely to connect our massive family in marriage and to make our children together feel that no matter what, both of us are there for them.
