Hashem was Really Sweating to Make this One Happen

Caryn (27) from Boston & Ben (28) from Chicago

Match #: 2029&2030

I first saw his picture on JWed and signed up just so I could email him. He wrote back saying he was in Israel for the year and since I was all the way in California he was not interested in pursuing something that long distance. I wrote back giving him my email address and told him to email when he gets back, if he wanted to. About 6 months later, out of the blue, he emailed me asking if I remembered him and saying he just moved to LA. That led to a phone conversation where I told him I really would love to meet him, but that I would be moving to Boston the next day and just didn't have the time. Although we didn't speak again after that, somewhere along the line we added one another as Facebook friends. In January 2008, almost 2 years after I moved to Boston, he suddenly emailed me on Facebook which led to a few phone conversations. By this time he was living in Chicago and in March he flew out to meet me. In April, I flew to Chicago for the second days of Pesach and met his entire family. In May, he flew out to Philadelphia for my sister's college graduation and met my entire family and that is when we got engaged! We were engaged for an entire year since I had a year left in school and in May 2009 we were married. Now it is March 2012, 4 years after we first me and we are happily married with 2 beautiful daughters ages 23 months and 4 months. As someone said after hearing this story, Hashem was really sweating to make this one happen!
