How We Met
I moved to the US 3 years ago, from Venezuela. It was August 2017 and I had to go to Miami because I had a meeting with my lawyer. So I drove from Alabama (where I was living at the time) to Atlanta, barely spoke English and also didn’t know the time change. I missed my flight!!! My phone wasn’t working, I started crying when I got to the airport! I was so scared about the meeting the next day and not having any money. I called one of my good friends in Birmingham and told him about my situation and him and his fiancé said “don’t worry we will book a hotel for you, you don’t have to pay us back. Just give us a second and we will call you back” so I’ve waited, when they called back they said “Ana, we have a good friend who lives in Atlanta and he will pick you up, and you will stay with him” yes !!!!! That was Kailen! (The groom) . I was able to go to Miami the next day for my meeting and went back to Alabama on Sunday. Never saw Kailen again or talked to him (again, I barely spoke English ). William and Candace were getting married on October 28th in Savannah Georgia and we went to the wedding as a date! And that’s when our story started.
How They Asked
December 20th, 2019.
I spent all week in Alabama taking care of my dad, my parents moved to the US a year ago. They don’t speak English. And my dad has been dealing with vision problems. I had to take my dad to the emergency room twice that week :(! And I was planning to go back to Atlanta on Friday since it was Kailen’s holiday party from his office but I was really worried on leaving my parents alone while my dad was feeling so bad. Kailen called me twice that morning! Please, I want you to come, please !!!. I drove back to ATL, that night we went out for dinner and I couldn’t stop talking about how worried I am for my dad’s health and the medical bills. But Kailen kept telling me, I’m here for you, and started talking about how he missed me the entire week! After dinner, we walked to a cute Area with the city view and he got down on one knee and popped the question ❤️
