A story about never giving up.
A story about never settling.
A story about believing your fairytale exists.
"We both came to the US from Romania when we were kids. Sorin was 10 and I, Laura, 7 back in 1985. We both grew up in Sunnyside, Queens on the same block. We went to same Jr. HS, but because he's older than me we never met.Fast forward 1993 - Our parents were both part of the Romanian community and became best friends, but we didn't personally meet till 1994. Our parents set us up and we went on a few dates but we were too young and at different points in our life. I was 17 & Sorin was 24.
We lost touch, but our parents remained best friends. We each got married and had kids. He has 2 children & I have a little girl.We both struggled in our relationships. Both of us had seen our parents love story and had dreamed of a love like theirs. My parents have been married for 46 years and his 50. We each wanted what our parents had.Throughout the years I had always wondered about Sorin and in 2015 he came up again in a conversation with my mom. I sent him a FB message just saying “Hi,hope you are well” ...I never heard back.
March 2017 I got divorced.
June 2017 I get a message on FB messenger from Sorin asking me if this was ‘Romanian Laura’...my response was "How many Romanian Lauras do you know??" He proceeded to tell me he just saw my message that I sent him.. I was like 2 years later?? He's not a social media guy :)We proceed to talk and he tells me that in April 2017 he got divorced and is now single. We talked on the phone for a month and on July 18th, 2017 he came over for the first time.
That was the day my life actually started
And also the day we eventually chose as our wedding day.
The moment he walked through that door I felt like I was going back home. We both knew that it was meant to be and we have been living in love since that day.
It started 25 years ago....and here we are today.
We both feel truly blessed to have each other. We are truly each other's half. We just know that there was some divine energy & intervention that brought us back together once we were both ready to receive what we both deserved.
We finally got our love story.. better than any Hollywood version.
