It was shortly after breaking up with Crystal Bauer that Amanda Bergeron realized the two might have a future together. She was right: Marriage, a son and careers at the University of Nebraska—Lincoln were awaiting the couple. Early inthough, Amanda had eyes only for France.
The Lincoln native had stayed home to become a Husker, but as a freshman majoring in communication studies, Amanda was yearning to study abroad in the land of bicycles, Bordeaux and baguettes. Aside from money, there was just one complication: a new girlfriend.
Their story began at a laundromat.
Still, both Crystal and Amanda were single, 19 and gay. So the sister and the friend had a thought: Why not get the two kids together and see what happens? She was just a really interesting person to talk to. The introvert and the extrovert were getting along famously.
But a plan — one still almost a year from fruition — was already nagging at Amanda. I was going to work two jobs in the summer. I was going to be a full-time student. I was going to be busy. That lasted three days.

The relationship followed. It took some doing.

After graduating, Amanda took a job as a recruitment and retention coordinator for the Office of Graduate Studies. She continued there untilwhen Amanda gave birth to their son, Emmett. Crystal applied and got the job. Soon she was cooking him breakfast and lunch, with an added benefit: getting to play with him over her own lunch breaks and peek in on him during spare moments outside the kitchen.
She was also getting to know his classmates and burgeoning friends. I have the best job in the center. The job, which Crystal still holds, has helped the family in other ways.
