Our Second Anniversary

Dear Youwen Zhang,

It’s hard to believe that we got married two years ago.

The moment we said, “I do,” our life together began and we were immediately met by the challenges of life in New York City:

I had to balance academics, research, and patient care.

You had to meet the demands of work and make money to support this family.

And yet, we did it.  It wasn’t easy, but we pulled through.

We are where we are today because of God’s grace, help from family and friends, and our love and support for each other.

Next year, things will be different.

After I graduate from dental school, we will leave New York City and start a life in the military.

I don’t know what to expect and I have no idea where we will be, however, one thing for certain is that we will enter this new chapter together.

I’ll never be afraid or anxious about the future anymore because no matter what happens, I know we’ll be there for each other.

Here’s to another year in New York City together and to the future beyond.


Eric Chia-Lin Cheng
