Surfer Bethany Hamilton Is Engaged!
Bethany Hamilton's love life is going swimmingly!
The 23-year-old surfer got engaged to fiance Adam on April 9, according to her blog.
"I know Adam’s love for me is unique — it comes from Christ — and that he will love me forever,"
"Adam, I love you, and I'm here to stay!" she adds. "I'm so thankful for you and look forward to living life together!"
Bethany says that she and Adam were set up by friends last spring, and on their first date, they jumped off a cliff together.
"And you could say it was love at first cliff jump," she writes. "The more time we spent together, the more I liked Adam."
Bethany was 13 when her arm was bitten off by a shark in 2003 while she was surfing off the coast of Kauai. She has gone on to win several surfing championships since then.
Her story was turned into a book and 2011 feature film, called Soul Surfer.
Adam sounds similarly smitted with Bethany.
"She's down to earth, and I could tell she understood my heart for The Lord and others — and I saw her heart as well," he writes.
Congrats to the happy couple!
