Victor Sine, 25, and Julianne Payne, 22, grew up within minutes of each other in California. But it wasn’t until meeting over Tinder in Utah that they discovered true love. Their love is leading to a May wedding, but expectations are that little Addie (Julianne’s daughter) will officially become Victor’s daughter through adoption. Addie’s biological father has been absent from her life and is in support of the adoption.
“Vic” and “Jules,” as they’re known to each other, became instantly known to thousands when they followed their nerdy tendencies and dressed up as Star Wars characters, Finn and Rey. Addie joined in the photoshoot as BB-8 and cooperated so well that one would think she is the real deal! The fun photos have gone viral and the happy family is hoping fans will consider contributing to their GoFundMe account to help pay for Addie’s adoption.
Julianne has been a single mother to Addie for a year now and is overjoyed at the prospect of giving her a stable home with a loving father and mother. Julianne is also a birth mother to a little boy she placed for adoption. She wanted what was best for him—and that meant finding a mother and father who could provide for him in every way. And she wants that for Addie, too. Victor entering their lives when Addie was just 3 months old has been an answer to Julianne’s greatest desires—for herself, and for Addie. “We want her to have a secure household where she is loved equally by her mother and father,” Julianne stated on her GoFundMe page, adding that every little bit helps in the expensive experience of adoption.
