A few days ago, a post went viral on Twitter, Sandra Igwe (@sandeeigwe) shared a collage of two photos, 27 years apart, and her and her husband were in both of them. So cool.
we both shook our heads in disbelief. Cut a VERY long story short, his Aunty confirmed that he attended my 2nd birthday party many years ago, shortly after he went to Nigeria for school and that was the last time I met him until 24 years later. Love Finds A Way. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/PhYkRn7vZJ

Beautiful isn’t it?
Now everyone has gone in search of their birthday photos from when they were toddlers. Maybe, just maybe the God of Sandra can do something again.
“Did I love Obi at the age of two? My simple answer would be ‘maybe’,” Sandra, the founder of The Motherhood Group, a platform that creates a safe space for mothers to connect, tells BellaNaija.
After my birthday party, that year he went back to Nigeria from the UK for seven years schooling, he had moved from different homes, cities, Universities – I still hadn’t met him yet. Only when we started dating, we found out that at one point in our lives, we were also living 10 minutes away from each other – I still hadn’t met him yet.
He even attended Coventry University, to which I also enrolled and was scheduled to attend, but I changed my mind for another University a week before the start date. It just shows you, no matter where or how far away we were from each other—even if in different dimension, cities or countries, we were destined to always find one another. This is destiny; this is love.
I can’t wait to tell our two daughters and future grandchildren how I met their father and grandfather, I just know that it’ll give them hope, that they too will find that someone who will come into their life and change it forever.
