I stumbled upon a post this morning on Myne Whitman's blog and it just got me thinking.
When someone knows that the road ahead would not be easy, that it could be fraught with challenges and difficulty and moments of questioning God and your own judgement, yet you look at this person and decide that you love them so much and would be willing to go through everything and anything with them, you decide that life that may be an ordeal for some will be a blessing for you because you have them in your life, then that's unconditional love. That is love.
Nick was born with no arms and no legs, and he never thought he would find his soul mate who wants to share his life with him. "I definitely had doubts that I'd ever get married, that I would ever meet anybody who would love to spend the rest of life with me," Nick said in a video interview.
After a suicide attempt at age 10, God worked in his heart in a mighty way. Determined to never give up again, he has grown into an incredible young man, using his testimony to glorify God.
Surprisingly, Nick met his own princess Kanae Miyahara. They fell in love at the first sight.
"I fell in love with him the way he is now," Kanae said. Before she met Nick, she had dated with other guy for a physical goal, but she became tired of that. "The moment I met Nick, I was looking for other thing, and all the things I found in him," Kanae said. "He is not only a boyfriend material, but he could be my husband."
When Kanae met Nick in 2008, she was impressed by his signature generosity in spirit and good humor. For her, Nick is so handsome, and "the perfect match." For Nick, "it was electric, when she stood by me, I just felt right."
A lot of people might be curious about whether it is difficult for them to have intimacy because of Nick's physical disabilities. Nick said no problem, "we are very affectionate." And Kanae smiled, "He's got everything he needs."
Even though they have some challenges in their lives, Nick said that his wife was ready for those, and he was amazed at her love.
The couple are blessed with a beautiful baby girl.
