Greg and I married on January 3, 2004. We met through a Christian Web site. Greg is a special education teacher with a Master’s in Autistic Spectrum Disorder and I am a nurse. Because of his training, he had some idea about what the difficulties would be for Geoffrey.

I think I am extremely lucky to have met a wonderful man who was willing to take on a new wife with a disabled son. Not many men would do that. Greg says his fears lay around my daughter who was 12 at the time we met and how she would react to him.

Both my children took to Greg really easily. I told Greg he was accepted into our family the first time Katherine said “I hate you” to him because he had set a limit on her behaviour. Greg is a very active step parent in our family. He at times has had to be, because I have had to go back to shift work during some periods in our married life.
