“I never believed God has a plan for each of us…until I met my husband, Mike. When we were first married, he found an old photo album of a trip my family took to California. ‘I know this restaurant – I had my picture taken with that same weird pirate when I was a kid,’ he said. Suddenly, confusion washed over his face. ‘It can’t be…that’s me!' I looked where he was pointing: It was a picture of 6-year-old me with the tall pirate, and in the corner of the photo was a blond boy waiting his turn.
“We grew up in different states…what are the odds? I asked skeptically. Mike left the room and returned with a photo of the same boy standing next to the same pirate. I looked at him, astonished, and he said, ‘You were always part of my plan.’” – Emily Corcoran, 43, Philadelphia
