When it comes to falling in love, many people subscribe to the idea of a “soulmate.” They like to believe that they were destined to meet and fall in love with their significant other since the universe began, because they were “meant for each other.”

Of course, there are plenty of folks that don’t buy into it. That’s not to say that they’re any less romantic, but they simply believe that two people that just happen to randomly meet each other at the right time in their lives can naturally fall in love.

That’s probably what Florida’s Justin Pounders and Amy Giberson were probably thinking when they started to fall for each other. Yet they would soon find out that their connection ran deeper than they could ever expect!

In 2014, Florida resident Justin Pounders was browsing through a dating website when he came across a woman named Amy Giberson. Right away, he noticed how attractive she was, and fortunately, he learned that Amy felt the same way. They immediately connected during their first call.

Once they actually went on their first date, Amy knew that Justin would be the man she would marry. In fact, she felt like she had already known him for a long time. Over the course of the next year, their relationship became more serious, but it all came to a head when they got their hands on some fascinating information.

Justin explained that when he he was in preschool, he had a crush on a girl in his class who also happened to be named Amy. They started talking about their grade schools, and Amy learned that she and Justin went to the same kindergarten in St. Petersburg, Florida!

They were intrigued, but they doubted that what they were thinking could be true. That is, until one day when they visited the home of Justin’s mother, who recalled the friend that Justin always used to play with. It all came together when she pulled out the photo album…

Justin and Amy were sitting right next to each other in their class photo! Justin’s mother remembered that they spent countless hours together in the playground, and always ate their lunch together. Fate brought them back together 30 years later!

Justin and Amy are now married, and they love to spend time together just as much as they did as young children. “Someone or something definitely decided we weren’t supposed to reconnect until now,” Justin said in an interview. “We’ve been so close to finding each other this whole time but didn’t until the time was right. And that’s now.”
