How you can win a trip to Maui, Hawaii

You can help one of our Will You Marry Me? couples win the wedding of their dreams by voting for your favorite couple. 

I voted for Andre Roache & Genine Thomas  
After I read why they thought they should win. it just touched me and I knew I agreed with them.
Why they think they should win.
As a couple, we feel that we deserve to win the Will You Marry Me contest because of who we are. Our belief in God has guided us through many storms together, some calm and some rough.
When we first met, the two of us were caregivers to our families. We didn't really know at the time that we would have so much in common. Andre's father died when he was sixteen, leaving him to help his mother care for two younger siblings. He was now the man of the house, putting his wants and dreams aside, and his family first. Genine grew up in a single parent home with three brothers and her mother. As a little girl growing up in the projects she didn't see many families with both a mother and father present, but her mother was a wonderful caregiver. She taught her how to be a mother to her son, and how to stay strong when a storm comes.
Both of our parents have instilled values in us that we will never forget, and we carry them until this day. We work on ourselves everyday together. We try to live our lives to be positive and meaningful. We do not take others or ourselves for granted. Hopefully in the next few weeks you will feel that we are deserving of this beautiful prize.
After you vote, be sure to enter for a chance to win four nights on the magic isles of Maui, Hawaii at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort & Spa and the Grand Wailea courtesy of Maui Visitors Bureau. Roundtrip airfare to/from Maui not included and is the responsibility of winner and travel companion.
