'Homeless' Man's Proposal Draws Heartwarming Response

Yahoo News

When two really good (and really quirky) people decide to spend the rest of their lives together, you're likely to get an inspiring proposal unlike any you’ve ever seen. Here's their story below:

  • Meet Mike King. He's a tireless homeless advocate.
  • Since King often volunteers with people in need with his girlfriend, Katie Barabas, he decided to dress up as a homeless person when he proposed to his generous partner, Yahoo! News reported.

    While King was undergoing his "transformation," Barabas was helping out at the Feed the Homeless ministry in South Bend, Ind., as she often does.
  • Suddenly King, in full homeless garb, approached her.
  • And got ready to pop the question...
  • But she wasn't having it.
  • That was until King revealed who he truly was.
  • “He took off his mask and got down on one knee and I was in complete shock and in such joy,” Barabas told Yahoo! News. “It was so special the way he did it.”
  • The couple plans on inviting the homeless people they volunteer with to celebrate with them at their wedding.
