Sabrina & Brandon
Sabrina & Brandon Pic 1
I can not place into words how much of a blessing Brandon Jackson has been in my life. We were both only 18 years old when we met, and are still happily chugging along at the ages of 24 and 25. I came to the University of North Texas to not only make a better life for myself, but also for my then 2 year old daughter, Kerrion as well. Kerrion is now 8 years old and has unfortunately been abandoned by her actual biological father, but has had the blessing of Brandon being that missing link in her life. They have become extremely close over the past 6 years, and show a love that many daughters could only wish to have with their own biological fathers. Not only has Brandon accepted our "already made" family with open arms he has also been the backbone to our small family these past 2 years as my struggle with Sickle Cell Disease has escalated, and been exceptionally rough.
Back in March of 2009 is when I almost lost my battle with Sickle Cell, and it was then at my bedside when Brandon expressed his desire to be my husband and how he planned to make that happen as soon as he could purchase the wedding of my dreams. Because we struggle financially with hospital bills, losing pay for sick days, or any of the unexpected financial surprises of life, we have had to put our wedding plans on the back burner.
With that being said, my idea of the perfect proposal would take place in the Dallas Galleria Ice Rink since Brandon, Kerrion, and myself share so many fond memories in that specific location during many fun-filled Saturdays.
I am a proud high school teacher for Mesquite ISD, and Brandon an Online Marketing Consultant; we are young, hard-working Americans striving to be happy, successful examples for our daughter with each breath that we take. Not only is this wedding important to Brandon and myself, it is also important to Kerrion as we plan to acknowledge her adoption by Brandon as his daughter on this day as well. Please help our small family of 3 with the wedding of our dreams.
