What This Couple Discovered In Old Preschool Photos Was One-In-A-Million Odds.
Justin Pounders told his girlfriend Amy Giberson he loved her name. It reminded him of his preschool crush who went by the same name. The couple have been dating for a year after meeting in an online dating site.
The two grew up in St. Petersburg, Florida but went to different schools and did not have mutual friends. When Pounders brought up his pre-K puppy love, they quickly realized they had both attended Sunshine Preschool.
The sweethearts asked their parents to find their preschool photos. “Justin’s mom found a photo of the two of us together and I just started crying, I was ecstatic. I was the Amy he had liked all those years ago! It was definitely meant to be,” says Giberson.

Their former teacher, Diane Twar, fondly remembers her two students. "It was a quiet, bashful romance. They insisted on sitting next to each other in our school picture," says Twar.
Giberson admits when she hugged Pounders on their first date she felt, "like I had known him my whole life."
The couple attributes a "higher power" for bringing them together.
