    My name is Jillian Elizabeth Benson and I grew up an only child in Dallas, Texas. I was adopted by Cynthia Benson, an interior decorator, and Leo Benson, a ER doctor, when I was an infant. My birth parents, Joanna Stevens and David Gilbert, were teenagers when I was born, and they were incapable of taking care of me. That is all I know of them. They did not leave enough information for me to go look for them.

    This is what my childhood home looked like: http://www.shutterstock.com/cat.mhtm...1650bc92fe-1-0

    When I went to college, I majored in nursing and I attended Rice University in Houston, Texas. I wanted to follow in my dad's footsteps and work in medicine. My ideal choice was an ER nurse.

    My husband, Jeremy Malcolm Danvers, grew up in Columbus, Ohio. He went to Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, not far from where his favorite uncle lived, and was studying to be a book editor. I met him through Nina Petrov, a co-worker at the hospital I worked at after I graduated from Rice University. Nina was Jeremy's cousin; one time her car broke down and she had to call him for a ride home. As I was walking her out, she introduced me to her cousin. I found him charming and attractive, but I did not see him again for another several months, when he was brought back to the hospital again after being injured in a car accident. His injuries were not too severe and I was the one in charge of looking out for him. He was terrific throughout the whole thing and we got to know each other. Jeremy stayed for a day in the hospital for observation. A week after he left, he came back to the hospital again--this time to ask me out.

    Jeremy and I dated for two years. When he got a new apartment, he asked me to move in with him. It took me a while, but I agreed. Three months later, on the anniversary of his accident, on my night off, he took me to the private parking lot behind the hospital and, on one knee, proposed. I said yes. We are married six months later, in mid-May, in a ceremony at a local hotel ballroom, with a reception following at Jeremy's uncle's huge house in Georgetown. Then, we spend the next two weeks in Hawaii.

    My engagement ring looks like this: http://www.tiffany.com/Engagement/It.../2002/0/0/2002

    My wedding dress looks like this: http://www.unique-vintage.com/prom-d...s-p-23856.html

    A year later, Jeremy is offered a job to work for a publishing house in Seattle, Washington. I love Texas, but I always wanted to see Seattle. I am able to get a job at one of the hospitals in Seattle while Jeremy goes to work for the publishing house. After a few months, I'm in love with the city and we do not mind the rain one bit. We rent for three months before we are finally able to buy our dream house: http://www.shutterstock.com/cat.mhtm...m#id=115018321. And just in time--because I get pregnant.

    Jeremy and I have three boys. Their names are Lachlan Jeremy Danvers, Theron Gabriel Danvers, and Holden Seth Danvers. Lachlan was born first, then Theron two years later, and Holden three years after that. Because I was adopted, I wanted to know the same feeling Cynthia and Leo had when they adopted me, and Jeremy was also interested in the idea. We adopt three kids, a boy and two girls. The boy, whom we name Soren Blake Danvers, is two years younger than Holden. The girls, Lilly Victoria Danvers and Annabelle June Danvers, are twins a year younger than Soren.

    Of course, we have to have pets, too. We have a male German Shepard named Bear, a female yellow lab named Ellie, a Yorkie named Zoey, a male white Persian cat named Tiger, a female black cat named Daisy, and a female Birman cat named Duchess. We also get a tank of fish and a blue parrot named Ariel.

    My name is Megan Elizabeth Cotner and I grew up in San Diego, California. My mother, Terry Faye Cotner, passed away at childbirth, so I was raised by a single father, Kingsley Dominador Cotner. My father could never fall in love again, so I never got a brother or sister. When I turned 18, I moved to LA to attend USC, living in my aunt's house who is a professor, her name is Charlotte Iris Cotner. I decided to major in Engeneering.

    My aunt introduces me to her TA, Randolf Cabahug Atterberry. He grew up Memphis, Tennessee and has a sweet southern accent. He is a Psychology major. He's a senior and I'm a freshman. We date for 3 years and one night he takes me to the movie theatre where we had our first date and proposes to me. Once I get my bachelors and he his master's, we get married in Vegas. Then we honeymoon in Cebu, the Philippines.

    We then settle down in Portland, Oregon where he gets his doctorate and I go into computer engineering. A fews later we have a little girl, Lily Faye Cotberry and then later another princess, Marilyn Scarlett Cotberry.
