PURE LOVE… 6 Year-Old Palsy Boy Walks to His US Marine Father For First Time (Video)

Six year-old Michael with cerebral palsy surprised his US Marine father. Michael walked to his dad for the first time when his father returned home from war.

Absolutely wonderful.
(Warning: You may need a Kleenex for this one!)

"When my husband left on his deployment, our 6-year-old son could not walk on his own. He has cerebral palsy. Doctors originally said that he would never walk or do much of anything. While daddy was away, he learned to walk. For his homecoming, we set it up for Michael to walk to his daddy for the first time ever! We kept the fact that he could walk a secret the whole time his dad was gone"! (Read More and See Video)

Neville Bardos cheats death and jockeys
for a position on U.S. Olympic team

Neville Bardos, the U.S. Equestrian Federation International Horse of the Year, is gearing up for a potential spot on the U.S. Olympic team, a remarkable feat considering less than a year ago the champion horse was fighting for his life after surviving a deadly fire.

“Neville was the highest-placed American horse at the World Championships two years ago,” said Boyd Martin, the horse’s trainer. But after a fire broke out in Neville’s stable, the 12-year-old chestnut thoroughbred horse with a white muzzle was unrecognizable when he turned black from the smoke and ash. “The only thing you could see was Neville's two little eyes,” Martin said.

The fire happened at night last Memorial Day in a barn which housed 11 horses. (Read More)

Grown man finds himself on a missing children list while searching for biological parents

Steve Carter, a 35-year-old Philadelphia man, was adopted at age four from a Hawaiian orphanage. He wasn’t too interested in searching for his biological parents growing up as he was always very happy with his adoptive ones. It was a gut feeling that spurred him to do some searching later in life. That‘s when he saw his own likeness on a missing children’s list.

CBS reports what Carter saw on MissingKids.com stunned him. It was a composite image of Marx Panama Barnes aged to be 26 years old: (Read More)

Dramatic rescue:
Boy revived after being sucked out to sea

Last Friday afternoon a large church youth group from Spanaway was visiting the beach off the Cranberry Beach approach in Long Beach, WA.

Shannon Kissel and his daughter Nicole were boogie-boarding nearby when they saw two boys were in need of help. While they were able to retrieve one boy, they were not able to rescue Dale Ostrander, who was caught in a rip tide. It was about 10 minutes until the surf rescue team was on scene.

Twenty-plus kids from the youth group sobbed uncontrollably and prayed on the sand during the search, a truly heart-wrenching sound. It was then at least another 15 minutes or so before rescue swimmer Eduardo Mendez spotted Ostrander, and he and swimmer Will Green were able to grab him and pull him aboard a jet ski. (Read More)

'How Long Was I Asleep?' Asked Gene Tipps —
and the Incredible Answer Was 8 Years

One of the first things that entered Gene Tipps's mind when he awoke was to remind his mother to return the cap and gown he remembered wearing for his junior college graduation photo the day before. "It feels like I've been sleeping for at least a week," the 28-year-old Tipps muttered drowsily. "How long has it been?" His mother, Gladys, sitting patiently at his hospital bedside, stared at him in stunned disbelief. "Eight years," she blurted, and then burst into tears. "Is this some kind of joke?" asked the groggy Tipps. "You don't look like yourself. What's going on?"

Thus did a bewildered Gene Tipps rejoin the world of the living, nearly eight years after a friend's car smashed into an embankment near their hometown in Seymour, Tex. Tipps struck his head on a rock and lapsed into a coma from which doctors feared he could never be roused. Then, recently—for no reason that doctors can fathom—he emerged from his Rip Van Winkle-like stupor after undergoing gall bladder surgery. "My God," he gasped when told what had happened. "Does that mean I'm 28 years old?" (Read More)
