Here’s a sweet story of love, destiny and happily ever after.
New Jersey couple Jourdan and Ryan Spencer were watching Jourdan’s childhood home videos when something surprising came across the TV screen.
This video was taken on a 1988 trip to the amusement park Sesame Place in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, 16 years before the couple met each other and went on their first date.
In the video, Jourdan’s mom Janice and sister Jillian are seen waiting for Jourdan, then 10, to return from a water slide. 13-year-old Ryan, who is wearing glasses, then walks into the frame.
“I was kind of joking around and said, ‘Wow, that looks like me,’” Ryan, 40, said. “And sure enough, that was me.”
“We rewound and paused. We rewound and paused, and we just couldn’t believe it,” Jourdan, 36, added.
Ryan and Jourdan married in 2007 and have 3 children.
They say the park has invited them back this summer after hearing their story.
“We were meant to be,” Ryan said. “Life is more than just randomness. There’s a reason that people cross paths.”
“I do really believe that people come into our lives, and every person we meet has a purpose,” Jourdan said.
“And we definitely were supposed to meet.”
Now if that isn’t fate, I don’t know what is. Share this uplifting story with others below.
