at a chance meeting at a halloween party last year, i met andrea. you can't help but be taken by her warm personality and her many passions. but it was when she told me of her fiance, eugene, that i became truly captivated. since he was not in town, I was told about him...and their incredible story.paralyzed by a freak basketball accident, eugene's life was forever changed one fateful night in the philippines. all those things that everyone takes for granted as part of every day life, were snatched away. it was in those times, as eugene put, that God spoke to him and changed his life for the better. spiritual matters, not worldly things, were of the utmost importance now. and he would never be the same inside or out.
during that entire time, there was andrea. at first, to support him. to be a friend. and it was because of the accident, years after they had first met, that eugene was moved to northern california for his treatment. that is what allowed them to be able to realize they cared deeply for each other.
but that's not the end of the story. through hard work and faith, eugene has been able to beat the odds and can now walk in short stints. and you can believe that in a few more years, he'll be doing even better. just like they will be as a couple.
