Jeremy & Shawnae

Associate Director & Homemaker

Shawnae and I met at a singles mixer at our church for Halloween. We were instantly friends because we had so much in common. Enough so that we actually even went into business together for a short amount of time. It was then I realized that I was starting to have feelings for her. I mustered enough courage to ask her out - to which she said a polite "no." Turns out she didn't date guys younger than her and in fact someone told her I was dating someone else. We continued hanging out as friends and I again mustered the courage to ask her out - to which she said "no" again.

We are Daniel and Diamond Morrison and we happily married August 21,2016. And our love is amazing. There is a special joy and peace in a love that never tires. Daniel and I met on a job I am now retired from. We had seen each other off and on for years in passing and never talked. Well, almost 10 years later he bids in the department I worked in. He still was of no interest because I didnt like him at all. He was not my type. He was over weight and scruffy more than I liked, but little did I know what was about to happen.

We need your support and help to share what happened and is still happening to us: I am German and my husband is Dominican. I lived with my husband in the Dominican Republic from 24th of March 2011 until 10th of March 2013. We are married since 11th of September 2012 and we have a German Marriage Certificate. My husband applied for the Spouse Visa on 26th of April 2013 it was denied on 12th of November 2013 because of the lack of German language skills.

My fiance and I have been together almost 4 years now. I am biracial black/white/Jewish and he is white. We met on Craigslist in 2012. Our relationship pretty much started right away because I got pregnant. We talked about marriage but we both decided that we wanted to do it for love and not because we had a child on the way. He took care of me during my pregnancy (still continues to do so) and somehow, somewhere in between we started having feelings for one another and fell in love. Our daughter was born on Feb of '13.
