  1. omg!!! I started to fill up half way through reading this and was sobbing by the end, (with joy) that has to be the most perfect proposal. I wish you all the happiness , laughter and joy that me and my husband have had in the last 11 yrs.

  6. What a wonderful proposal, and many congratulations to all three of you! I am a long time lurker of, oh it must be five years or more. Long, long time. I have been following all your trials and tribulations for many years and it so wonderful to see you find happiness with Richard! (I found my own Mr Wonderful at the age of 40 and we married in April. Life is good!) xxx

  7. Good heavens woman! That was amazing! And Richard is a very handsome man! I don't know if it could have been more perfect. Thanks for sharing…and for the pictures. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Oh my goodness Alison! This is such a lovely story with such a romantic man! I could see it coming as I read, but was still delightfully surprised at the end when Finn asked you. I am so happy for you and I wish you all the love and kindness and hope and wonderfulness anyone could hope for in this life. Sounds like you have it made darlin'. Congrats!

  9. Your heart must be welling over. Instead of just tepidly accepting the woman's kid to be able to have the woman, Richard seems to love Finley as that wonderful extension of you. Finley is so lucky to have a man around that has dedicated himself to loving mummy and making him feel special and loved, too. The first picture is really adorable – it makes me think of Richard's road to becoming Finley's role model, protector, and buddy. I am so very happy for you, Alison, that you have found such a wonderul man to love you, who is obviously patient and understanding – and oh so Smart to grab the package deal he saw because you are a gem! …not to mention how resourceful, helpful, romantic and cute he is!

  10. Oh, Alison! This is more touching than you know! What a way to begin a long and lovely life together. Thank you for sharing your story. And yes, I had tears as well.
    I have always said that men who have a sense of humor make great husbands, given the fact that mine did almost the same thing 21 years ago. Welcome to the club, you're in for the ride of your life!

  11. Oh Alison, that's just wonderful! What a wonderful proposal, a wonderful man, a wonderful child, and a wonderful life await you. I'm so thrilled (and thank you so much for your comment on my blog ;-)0 xxx

  18. What a wonderful way to propose! I was also a single mom, and I married a man that loved my daughter as his own. It has been 7 wonderful years, and he is still the kindest, funniest, most wonderful man that I have ever met. I wish you as much friendship, partnership, love, and deep joy as my sweet man and I have had!

  19. OH MY GOD! I've only just read this! Congratulations, Alison! (And, of course, to Richard.) You had me crying with the way the proposal happened – utterly perfect! I am SO happy for you.
