He Plays With A Very Strange Friend. Once I Realized It Was The Most Unexpected Surprise!

Friendship between humans and animals has been occurring since the dawn of humanity, but every once in a while, a friendship comes along that is so unusual you just have to see it to believe it. The boy in this video has built such a close friendship with this stingray that it seems to enjoy letting him pet it and even eats out of his hand!

Stingrays come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, making up the eight families of stingray species.  The largest species is the manta ray, which is part of the eagle ray family. They can be over 20 feet wide and weigh close to 3,000 pounds!

The stingray in this video is most likely not a manta ray, as it lacks the distinctive cephalic fins near the mouth that make the manta look like it has horns, earning it the name sea-devil or devilfish in some parts of the world.

Stingrays are rarely aggressive, but many species do have a poisonous stinger that is most often used in defense when the ray is threatened. This happens most often for humans when they inadvertently step on one. Here’s a helpful tip: if you are wading in shallow ocean water where stingrays are known to live, walk with a shuffling step and you will likely scare them away instead of stepping on them!

Video: Couple Has A Priceless Reaction When They Meet Their Abandoned Baby They Adopted

For almost 10 years the Chens have struggled to have a baby.  They tried everything in their power to make their dream of having a family a reality.  However, they realized that because of infertility they would be unable to conceive their own child.  According to research around 6% of married women ages 15-44 in the United States are unable to have children due to infertility. Men also have approximately the same rate of infertility in the United States as compared to women.

In this video they share their story of how they traveled and adopted a baby boy.  From the minute they laid eyes on him they know this was their son, Jacob Chen.  They hold their baby and rock him back and forth as any new parent would with a new child. As the emotion bubbles to the surface the tears of their long struggle can’t be bottled in.  This emotional moment is all caught on video and it truly tore my heart into a million pieces.

By the 4 minute mark I just couldn’t hold back my own tears. Be warned you will probably need tissues for this one.  You will really be able to empathize with the struggle that all adoptive parents must face while going through their journey.  This heartwarming film should be seen by all parents who are interested in adopting.

Daddy Is Attempting To Buckle Her In The Car. But Her Response Is Priceless!

This is a familiar routine for any parent with a feisty toddler out there. Children often have a way of insisting they are equal with adults in experience and capability, but only when it is most inconvenient. If you want them to act independently, they’ll pick up on that and do the opposite just to see how you’ll react.

Of course there are the moments when your kid is doing exactly what you dreamed he’d do and you feel that you’re the best parent there ever was and your offspring is superhuman, but the power struggle exists at all times. At least, at all times that either of you are demanding something from the other.

The adult-child interactions that are the most rewarding are the ones where there is an even playing field. Neither party is giving precedence to themselves or the other person, they merely treat each other like people. The father in this video has that skill honed as he allows his daughter the freedom to buckle her belt. One might presume he’s in no hurry to get to wherever they are going, but, no matter what, his exceptional patience lets the cutie with the ‘tude-y express how she feels.

The girl, mumbling and fumbling with her carseat five-point harness, tells her father, “Worry ’bout yourself. Worry ’bout yourself,” as she’s pointing at the man with the camera. Dad endearingly responds by offering his undoubtedly stronger hands, “Can I help?” Then, the wee one, “No.” With exasperation and uncertainty she continues, “Uh, help, I don’t.., you can help when, meh.. out to eat, ok?”

She makes eye contact to clarify, “You can help when we are out to eat.” Still respecting her wishes, Dad chuckles and asks, “What do you want me to do?” Completely without hesitation, the daughter recommends, “Worry ’bout YOURself.” She continues to ineffectively mess with the impossible button and straps. “Worry ’bout yourself.” Distracted, but still talking, “I’m gonna do this one, so, um, gonna do that…” And with sudden realization, the little miss commands, “You drive!” As she points behind camera, “Worry ’bout yourself! Go drive!”

This 2 Year Old Walks Onto The Court. His Next Move Is Priceless!

At a recent Southern Regional High School Varsity boys basketball game in New Jersey the crowd gets to their feet for the National Anthem. Simultaneously, a two year old boy walks out onto the court with his father. He is handed the microphone and confidently starts singing the Star Spangled Banner as the crowd looks on respectfully.

The boy is Trent Harris, son of Cincinnati Bengals long snapper Clark Harris and wife Jessica Harris, and this is his first performance. Where many people would be scared and nervous Trent is a natural and at ease in front of the large crowd.

He does not for even a moment hesitate and starts to sing with confidence and certainty, never missing a beat or line from the notoriously tricky anthem. Many who have sung the Anthem before have forgotten words or botched the notes. Little Trent has no problem powering through it and proves he may even have a future in show business.

All the while his proud parents look on as he sings his adorable rendition of the song. At the end he does not rush off the court but instead strides confidently over to his waiting parents, smiling and clearly thrilled with just having finished his memorable first public presentation. The end result is no doubt an unforgettable moment for all those witnessing the event.

This Boy’s Aunt Spotted A Deadly Disease In Her Nephew’s Photo. This Is How She Realized It.

Meet Taylor a cute little boy who was about to become a child model.  His mother Tina had planned on submitting a beautiful photo of the boy to a modeling agency.  His aunt Geraldine got a look at the photo and noticed something that startled her to the core.

Bikers Get Word That A Child Is Being Abused Here. They Arrive and Have The Perfect Response.

Screen Shot 2016-10-29 at 6.56.18 PMimage via – youtube.com

I don’t know about you, but whenever I’ve seen a group of bikers my instinct is to recoil, because their look and typical reputations are of being really tough men and women.  Some groups of bikers have been known to be violent, which has supported the negative stereotype.  The truth is that biker groups are all different, often brought together by not only a love of motorcycles, but a need for an extended family.

The VIDEO you are about to watch below, is about a young girl who was the victim of child abuse at the hands of her stepdad.  Initially, a very well adjusted, happy and fearless child, “Fa” was diminished to a withering ball of fear.  Hearing about the circumstances that had occurred, a group of bikers called BACA (Bikers Against Child Abuse), appeared to become her guardian angels.

In interviews with the bikers, the girl and her mom you will be so moved and inspired by this story, and the work that BACA does.  Their commitment to each individual child of abuse, is demonstrated by not only physically presenting protection, but inspiring the courage to face and prosecute their abuser.  They stay on in close contact with the child until they are able to internalize this caring and vigilance; eventually overcoming their fears and victimhood to build the confidence to rely on themselves.

What BACA did to change the life of this girl is beyond remarkable.  Her story is an incredible example of how this dedicated and loving group of men and women, can turn a victimized child’s life around completely.
