We are two people from very different worlds, literally! David (aka curry) is of Indian descent and grew up in Malaysia. He is the son of a missionary family and relocated frequently throughout his childhood. Life was challenging due to the more than strict upbringing and constant changes that occurred over the years. He is no stranger to the feeling of rejection and not belonging. He settled in Germany, his mother's homeland, at the age of 17 and finished up his schooling in the German school system. He continued on shortly after he graduated, to fulfill his dream of becoming an Airline Pilot. On his own means, which was little to nothing, he began his adventure of testing and training and was sent over to Phoenix, Arizona where soon thereafter, met the girl of his dreams, Robin. This is where the healing began.
Robin (aka cactus) comes from the desert of Goodyear, Arizona. Her childhood was more stable in the sense that she grew up in one town, in one house. However, life for her also had it's challenges. Robin was adopted as a baby to middle-aged parents. Even though adoption is a great thing, it can cause rejection and abandonment issues in children that often have long lasting affects. This was the case for Robin as she developed self-esteem problems that led into a course of bad decisions that also included bad relationships. She experienced and overcame addiction issues and divorce. And began a career in finance. It wasn't until she came face-to-face with the love of her life that she began to experience healing.
Despite all of the odds being stacked against us, we've accomplished what everyone said was impossible! And though our lives, some refer to as crazy, we've managed to build an indestructible, loving, close-knit family that is a wild blend of culture, personality and fervor. We are far from perfect but are living proof that true love does exist and love is thicker than blood!
Together, we moved to Germany in 2002, home to neither, along with 2 from 3 of Robin's daughters. It's a been a rough road to say the least, but through those hardships we've created a indestructible bond of compassion, patience, gratitude, hope and most of all love, with our now five children that we share together...along with one granddaughter! God is the center of our marriage and our family. And in our house, there is no such things as step, half or adopted children. We are one family bound together by pure love!
