Erin & Ruth




 
  Erin and Ruth met while attending a mutual friend’s birthday party in Bujumbura, Burundi. Erin was an Embassy guard at the time. Ruth had recently moved to Burundi to teach English to children. They ran into each other a few weeks later at another social gathering. They became great friends and became part of the same circle of friends. They went on a couple of dates in June 2011 before Erin was scheduled to move to India. They were able to maintain a long distance relationship over Skype calls and emails. They also made it a point to meet up in person in different places and their home countries to meet their families. Erin proposed to Ruth in Sweden on October 31, 2012. They were married in England on August 3, 2013. Erin and Ruth feel as though they have a strong marriage based on happiness and commitment. Together they enjoy playing board games, having friends come to their home, being connected to their church, renovating their home and raising their daughter. They are very excited to add to their family through adoption!
