Lovers and Friends
For Adwoa and Haigo, love was the last thing on their minds when their paths first crossed. But as fate would have it, love found its way. With lots of mutual friends between them, it was actually quite a surprise to them both that they’d never met before the day a friend gave Haigo the courage to approach Adwoa. Instantly smitten, he pursued his future bride-to-be like a true gentleman, and the rest, as they say, is simply history. What began as a friendship blossomed into love when prayer and patience became the foundation of their love story. When their careers found both Adwoa and Haigo plagued with busy schedules, they always made time for what mattered most – each other. Miles often kept them apart, but in the end nothing could stop the closeness of their hearts. By demonstrating their courage and faith in each other, one thing was clear: their love story was worth it. Haigo proposed to Adwoa in the late night hours over the phone and with the consent of her parents they took the next step toward spending a lifetime together.
