I am writing to notify you of my marriage to a lady I met on your vacation tour to Cali, Colombia in August 1998.
I began receiving your magazine after a nasty divorce to an American woman and told myself it wouldn't happen again. I needed a woman that appreciated me, did not try to compete with me, and had the same beliefs and values that were important to me. After writing several women and receiving numerous responses to my personal ad, I still had not found the right one. I knew that a Latin woman was what I wanted and needed I found them very attractive, so I decided to take one of your vacation tours. It turned out to be above my expectations. There I met Maria Hernandez. She had never written TLC or any men from TLC, but was invited by a friend to the party. We're both glad she attended.
After the party I returned to Cali one month later and a spent three weeks in September with her where we fell in love. We were married on Miami Beach December 30, 1998, and, we are expecting a baby or possibly two in March 2000.
The one word that describes Maria is devoted. Never have I experienced the devotion and love from a woman as I do from Maria. She is also a Christian, which is very important to me. When we met I was still facing hardship from my previous divorce. I had quit my job, sold everything and moved to Florida. I had no job, an apartment with no furniture, but a big heart looking for love. That was all she wanted.
For the guys who are still skeptics, there is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow - go south young man, go south older man, they are waiting for you.
Without you guys it never would have happened and we will be forever grateful.
