From dynamic duo to three musketeers

I became a single mother back in 2006. As the years went by my son and I became the epitome of the dynamic duo. We were a terrific team had got it all figured out being a two person household and loved each other and supported each other. Me and my son had longed to complete our family and our journey was hard at times. We felt like giving up and just being a happy duo. But in 2011 that changed a glimmer of hope was given to us when I met my future husband. He was not looking to take me away from my son he enjoyed spending time with us both. He was not trying to butter me up to get laid he was actually the most slow-moving gentleman  I had ever met. He did things to show us both that he cared. I remember him painting my sons room Buzz Lightyear Blue as a surprise for him to come home to the following day. He did this and did it well and before our date. I was falling hard for this wonderful man. He made me feel like the most beautiful I’d ever felt inside and out he told me all the time how lucky he was to have me in his life and how much he loved us both. At the end of the same year we met he got scared and just broke it off. This shattered me, I knew he’d been through a hard divorce which I later found out was still going on until about 3 months after are breakup. We found times to reconnect and go out in the next year but I was convinced he was never going to be ready to fully  commit and be over all the hurts from his past. In 2013 I asked him to meet me for lunch I wanted to let him know I still  loved him and wanted a future with him and see how he felt and I was prepared to just be on my own  if he was not interested. I had been through so much I was content with just concentrating on my son and waiting until he went off to college to find love. When we met for lunch he truly broke my heart he told me he was actually seeing someone  long distance and was  very happy. I wished him well and left it at that. Well I guess he was not being fully open with me because he pretty much broke it off with her on his next planned visit. He made his way back in my life as a friend offered to help me move months later. Straight away he was asking me to be his girlfriend again. I went on several dates with him things were great but I knew  I needed to have a serious talk with him. So I did I basically told him I was ready to break it off and be friends. Or I wanted a real commitment that he was not only ready to be in a relationship but to build a future get engaged married and  adopt my son. That is a lot to ask of anyone but that is what he wanted. We moved forward planned moving in together and eventually at the end of the year he proposed to me. My son and I moved with him to June Lake, CA and we planned a March 28,2014 wedding. We have been living  as a happy family ever since and even more we were blessed with so much in the following year. Happiness for the Three Musketeers.
