No One Could Understand Why She Kept Her Baby, But She’s Still Inspiring Thousands

Lacey_Buchanan

When Lacey Buchanan was pregnant, she had no idea what was in store for her.

She was excited to know that she was pregnant and that she was having a boy. But, as her baby grew, something went wrong. Doctors weren’t sure what was happening to the small child inside of her…

And many people suggested she abort the baby.

But this mother refused to give up on her unborn child (grab your tissues).

Once Christian was born, Lacey had to be even stronger.

People would stare, ask questions, and judge her family without knowing the truth. One person even told Lacey shewas a horrible person for not aborting her son.

Although many may not understand this family’s situation, one thing is certain: they are an inspiration, even today.

But now? Her strength and the little video she made are still touching thousands of people.

This mother’s love and strength are truly amazing.

She refused to give up on her unborn child…and continued to be a source of love and support, even during hard times. Remember Lacey and Christian when you’re feeling down. Their lives aren’t easy, but they love each other and they are happy. These two are truly an inspiration!

Airman Stuns His Teenage Brother With A Surprise Homecoming

Tristan Faunce is a high school senior, but leading up to the last days of school, he was a little confused by what was happening at home. First, his mother bought an air mattress. Then, she moved the date of his graduation party to before the event itself. To the teen, none of this made sense.

He didn’t suspect his mother’s plan, which she had devised with his older brother, Andrew. Andrew is a member of the United States Air Force, and has been away for the past two years in Germany. For that entire time, the two brothers missed one another and couldn’t wait to be reunited. The end of the school year, which coincides with Mother’s Day, was the perfect time for the airman to surprise Tristan!

During an interview in the baseball team’s locker room, Andrew snuck up on Tristan and grabbed his shoulders. While the teen didn’t flinch, he was visibly moved by the sight of his brother’s face, and didn’t waste time before giving him a long-awaited hug. And perhaps despite his best efforts, the young man shed some tears, and told his brother that he loves him!

Watch the clip to see the heartwarming reunion between two brothers.

Parents Discover A Secret Hidden In Adoptive Daughter’s Family Tree

Life was good for Lisa and Gene Lumpkins. They were financially successful. They had two beautiful children. But they realized something was missing. That’s when the Georgetown, Kentucky couple decided to trade in their fancy cars and comfortable lifestyle to adopt four orphans from China — each child with special needs.

One of Lisa and Gene’s adopted children is a little girl named Aubrey. Not only does Aubrey have cerebral palsy, but she was neglected and abused by her biological mother. At one point, Aubrey’s birth mom attempted to smother her to death. But now that she’s part of a loving family, Aubrey couldn’t be happier — but her story has recently taken an unexpected turn.

One day, Lisa’s friend and an orphanage volunteer posted a photo of an orphaned girl on Facebook. Lisa noticed the girl in the photo looked staggeringly familiar. She couldn’t shake the similarities between this unknown girl on Facebook and her adopted daughter, Aubrey. As soon as Lisa started posting the photo of the girl on her own Facebook page, even her friends and family members agreed.

Feeling in her gut that there was much more to it, Lisa paid for a DNA test and sent in a swab of Aubrey’s saliva. Nothing could prepare Lisa or her family for what they discovered next…

Rude Strangers Humiliate Man In A Wheelchair. His Wife Shocks Them By Doing This

First off a little back story. My husband is a 27 year old Iraq veteran. He was injured while on patrol, an has a severe spinal injury, a leg injury, a traumatic brain injury, and severe post traumatic stress disorder. (Who wouldn’t after being blown up?) He can walk for short periods of time, with the use of a cane. (30-45 minutes at most) The rest of the time he is wheelchair bound.

I’m 21. I married my husband when I was 18, and he had already been injured when I married him. Everyone tried to talk me out of marrying a broken man, because I wouldn’t have a normal life. I married him anyway. We have been married almost 3 years, and I am told all the time how strong I am, and how hard it must be for me… but they’re wrong.

husbandwheelchair3

Everyone thinks the hardest part has to be that he can’t walk, or that I have to bathe him, or that I have to help him on and off the toilet, because he can’t do it himself anymore. That isn’t it at all. The hardest part of being married to someone who is broken, is dealing with everyone else.

Just the other day, my husband was yelled at for parking in a handicapped parking spot. They see the plates or placard and assume since we’re both young, we stole them from our grandparents. I’ve really been accused of this. People give him dirty looks for using those in store scooters, or his wheelchair. Sadly, these aren’t one-offs – they happen to him all the time. They all see him like a cancer on society. That is the worst part of being married to a veteran.

The hardest part for me is seeing my husband break down in tears after being yelled at by a random person at the post office, and hearing him say “This isn’t what I fought for. This isn’t what I fought for at all.”

So I always tell him “Loving a military man was not hard. The distance was hard, the sacrifices were hand. But loving you… that’s the easiest thing I’ve ever done.”

The veterans of our military services have put their lives on the line to protect the freedoms that we enjoy. They have dedicated their lives to their country and deserve to be recognized for their commitment. We owe our disabled veterans more than speeches, parades and monuments.

The cutest video you will see today! Baby smiles at seeing his mother for the first time after getting new glasses

Baby

  • Baby Leopold suffers with a rare disorder called oculocutaneous albinism
  • Condition affects color of his hair and skin and severely impairs his vision
  • Leopold received new pair of glasses and saw mother clearly for first time
  • The heartwarming video shows the youngster smiling in delight at mother

This is the tear-jerking moment a young baby smiles in delight after seeing his mother clearly for the first time in his life. Baby Leopold, who lives with his parents near Seattle, Washington, suffers with a rare disorder called oculocutaneous albinism.

The condition affects the color of a person’s hair, skin and eyes and means that the youngster is unable to see properly. In the video Leopold has a pair of glasses pulled down over his head by his mother and is given the opportunity to see for the first time.

After a momentary bit of confusion as the spectacles are placed on him, he looks up at his mother who says: ‘Hi honey’. He makes eye-contact with her and then immediately reacts by smiling.

The response is met with gasps of surprise and delight from the other people in the room and a male voice can be heard saying: ‘Oh he’s smiling’.

The youngster’s mother then readjusts the glasses so that they sit better before staring into her son’s eyes.

He looks down for a bit, while allowing his eyes to adjust to what must be a very strange sensation, before looking back up.

The video concludes with him focusing on his mother and beaming with delight. He even begins giggling as she continues to talk to him.

According to the NHS, a person with oculocutaneous albinism is missing the pigment from their irises, which is the colored part of the eye.

This can lead to a number of eye conditions, including impaired vision and sensitivity to light.

Strangers Wrote Their Biggest Regrets…They All Used The Same Three-Letter Word

regret

Often times when people are asked about regrets the response is a rehearsed, “I don’t have any regrets.” In reality, we all have and carry feelings of things we should have done or said but simply did not.

How many times have we taken the safety route for fear of failure or thinking we were not good enough, only to realize the easiest decision ends up being the hardest one to live with. A chalkboard was placed on a street in New York City asking strangers to write their biggest regret. People did not write things like driving a new car or living in a specific neighbourhood.

Instead, things like not applying to med school, not following an artistic passion, and playing it safe were the heartfelt things people wrote. This viral video by Strayer University is a lesson for everyone.

Let’s not regret what we did not do, rather everyday is an opportunity to do the things we will never regret.

81-Year-Old Grandma Goes Missing In The Woods. 40 Minutes Later, They See Her Holding His Hand

dementia

It’s easy for someone with dementia to forget important things in their everyday life. Whether it’s chores that were once second nature to them, or even close members of their family, there are memories that start to fade away as the disease progresses.

Getting lost is another concern, even if it’s within the very neighborhood in which they live. That was the case for an 81-year-old woman, whose daughter called the police to report her missing. The elderly woman took her usual daily walk up and down the driveway, but never came back.

Officers immediately sprang into action. Officers DeBoe, Caywood, and Morrison, Sgt. Black, and Cpl. Clevenger along with his K9 partner, began looking throughout the wooded area.

Thankfully, the officers found her 40 minutes later. But, it’s the heartwarming gesture of Officer Morrison that’s made this specific moment really special.

At first, she seemed confused at the sudden appearance of police officers on the tree-lined trail, and she asked if the officers were out taking a walk, too. They quietly replied ‘Yes,’ after all, it was a beautiful day. And then she seemed relieved and told them she had lost her way. ‘No problem,’ said Officer Morrison who then gently took her hand and along with the other officers walked her back to her house. Along the way, the officers made small talk with the woman, to make her feel at ease,” the department explained on Facebook.

The family were overjoyed to see her come back safely and are really grateful to the kind police officers who not only found grandma but treated her with dignity and respect.

A Foster Son Starves While Mom and Daughter Eat. Now Watch When a Customer Turns Around

foster

Regardless of your stance on abortion there’s generally one thing both sides agree on – that the adoption and foster parent processes need a rework.

 There’s thousands of people out there completely unfit to be a parent and yet still manage to pull one over the adoption agencies with less than the child’s best interests in mind, so what happens when people notice it in public?

If you’ve never heard of the show “What Would You Do?” it’s a great social experiment production that really gets into the grey areas of today. In this particular episode they take a mother and her two children, one is adopted and the other is biological and place them in a restaurant together. The mother then neglects to feed her foster child while her and her daughter choked down; what the rest of the restaurant goers do in response is exactly what you need to see to restore your faith in humanity for the day!

He Made A Promise In The 4th Grade No One Thought He’d Keep. Then, He Sees Her

Going to the prom with the star of the school’s football team is something most girls dream about, but it’s something Mary Lapkowicz got to experience for herself.

She went to the prom with Ben Moser, the star quarterback at school.

What’s more remarkable is that Mary has Down syndrome. Mary and Ben have known each other since the fourth grade. Like a true friend, Ben always tried to ensure Mary was included in school activities.

“He watched over her constantly,” their fourth-grade teacher, Tracey Spogli said. “If she was looking like she wasn’t having fun, he would go over and talk to her. He would pull her in to whatever activity they were doing. He just always watched out for her.”

It was also during that fourth-grade school year that Ben promised to take Mary to prom when they got older.

When it was prom season, Mary thought Ben had forgotten until she got balloons from him with the word “PROM?” written on them.

“I was surprised,” Mary said to PennLive. “I was going to go with some friends.”

Together, they went to the prom and had a great time.

“Today with joyful tears in my eyes and down my face I watched a promise made, seven years ago, to a beautiful girl fulfilled,” Ben’s mother, Lisa Moser, posted on Facebook.

Here’s to true friendship – one that doesn’t let each other down and keeps their promises.

He Died Alone In A Nursing Home. Nurses Thought He Had Nothing Of Value Until They Saw THIS!

1

As their memory fades and their functionality diminishes, so do the relationships they have with family. What used to be a visit here or there, is now just a phone call to the facility asking how they are. On top of that, the staff at these facilities can become so busy with their daily duties that they really don’t get a chance to get to know the seniors and establish any sort of deep relationships with them. It’s a very sad situation.

When Mak Filiser died in the geriatric ward of a nursing home, the nurses believed that he left nothing behind of any real value. 

It came time to clean out Mak’s room after he passed on. One of the nurses then noticed something. It was a poem that Mak had written. She proceeded to read it and was so floored by his words that she ended up making copies of it and sharing with every employee at the nursing home.

The poem is entitled, “Cranky Old Man” and it no doubt taught the staff some very valuable lessons and goes something like this…

Cranky Old Man by Mak Filiser

What do you see nurses? What do you see?
What are you thinking…when you’re looking at me?
A cranky old man…not very wise,
Uncertain of habit…with faraway eyes?
Who dribbles his food…and makes no reply.
When you say in a loud voice…I do wish you’d try!’
Who seems not to notice…the things that you do.

old3

And forever is losing…A sock or shoe?
Who, resisting or not…lets you do as you will,
With bathing and feeding…The long day to fill?
Is that what you’re thinking? Is that what you see?
Then open your eyes, nurse…you’re not looking at me.
I’ll tell you who I am . . . . .. As I sit here so still,

old4

As I do at your bidding…as I eat at your will.
I’m a small child of Ten…with a father and mother,
Brothers and sisters…who love one another
A young boy of Sixteen…with wings on his feet
Dreaming that soon now…a lover he’ll meet.
A groom soon at Twenty…my heart gives a leap.
Remembering, the vows…that I promised to keep

old6

At Twenty-Five, now…I have young of my own.
Who need me to guide…And a secure happy home.
A man of Thirty…My young now grown fast,
Bound to each other…With ties that should last.
At Forty, my young sons…have grown and are gone,
But my woman is beside me…to see I don’t mourn.
At Fifty, once more…Babies play ’round my knee,
Again, we know children…My loved one and me.

old7

Dark days are upon me…My wife is now dead.
I look at the future…I shudder with dread.
For my young are all rearing…young of their own.
And I think of the years…And the love that I’ve known.
I’m now an old man…and nature is cruel.
It’s jest to make old age…look like a fool.
The body, it crumbles…grace and vigor, depart.
There is now a stone…where I once had a heart.
But inside this old carcass a young man still dwells,

old8

And now and again…my battered heart swells
I remember the joys…I remember the pain.
And I’m loving and living…life over again.
I think of the years, all too few…gone too fast.

And accept the stark fact…that nothing can last.
So open your eyes, people…open and see.
Not a cranky old man.
Look closer…see…ME!!
