Don't forget the question mark!

Seventeen years ago, Adrian Franklin of Charlotte, NC, had a problem. He was five, and agreed to be ring bearer at the wedding of a family friend. Then came some bad news. The flower girl was Brooke. She was also five, and he knew she had a crush on him, and he hated it. How could he ever walk down an aisle with her? It would be awful. But he did it anyway, and then they started elementary school. Whenever Brooke tried to play with Adrian during recess, he'd run and hide, but she never gave up, and recalls that "he really started to come around in middle school." By now Adrian was becoming romantic. Using his finger, he wrote a question on her back. Would she be his girl? She never answered, because (she explained later) he forgot the question mark.

On September 19, Adrian and Brooke walked down the same aisle again, this time to be married. That's because Adrian wasn't forgetful when he proposed. After pointing out a sign that said, "Will you marry me, Brooke" he got down on one knee and handed her a question mark. They both feel their marriage is God-ordained. "We know our steps have been ordered by the Lord," said Adrian.
