Have you ever noticed that Teresa never stands up or walks? That's because Teresa is a paraplegic and confined to a wheelchair. On this emotional and revealing episode of Mom & Me, Teresa tells us the heart-wrenching details of the accident that put her in a wheelchair and changed her and her families' lives forever. In 1993, Pat was a year old when his mother was injured. "It happened so fast... and just like that your life changes" says Teresa. "I went from walking and standing to being in a wheelchair while raising my kids." Teresa's advice to people in similar situations is, "Don't give up. Keep on going and take it one day at a time and you can live a happy life." Pat wants everyone to learn from his mom's situation. "Whatever disability you have there is hope. Everybody has the strength to continue on no matter what."

Donate: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/filips-last-wish A little boy who lost his mother at age two to cancer is himself dying of a terminal disease, and when he goes, he wants to be buried with her. Now, we’ve all heard of the family plot, a place where all the members of a particular clan can be laid to rest together. But Filip Kwasny wants to do something a bit more…different. In the final stages of juvenile myelomonocytic leukaemia (JMML), which he has been battling since last September, doctors have done everything they can to prolong his life. Chemotherapy failed to help. So did a stem cell transplant. Now under palliative care, Filip has but one wish – to be buried with his mother. Not next to her or in the same area – but with her. Yes, with his father currently trying to raise the money to exhume the coffin, Filip wants to be side by side with his late parent. Why? So she can look after him in Heaven. His own words. The sad part? Mom is buried in Poland, and Filip’s dad cannot afford to transport everyone there for the funeral. He has started an online campaign to raise the cash.

There is an uncertainty in military service which transcends the battlefield. Many are damaged both internally and externally. Others are OK, but on the cusp. That’s why deployment can be so disconcerting. It’s the start of the adventure, and in some cases, a direct line to the conflict at hand. For many, it’s a time to reflect and ready themselves. For new Marine Noah, however, it is the chance to cement his future. With a photographer at the ready and the rest of his family in tow, the young service man has only one goal in his mind before hitting the transport to another part of the world. He wants to make longtime girlfriend Lauren his wife, and he intends to propose right before his long deployment. The entire thing was videotaped and it’s both a celebration of love and a reminder of what is waiting this newly formed military couple. The whole event goes off without a hitch. As the video shows, Noah takes a knee and when she turns around, Lauren in initially stunned, then overcome with emotion. Of course she says “Yes” and for all intents and purposes, the foundation for a happy marriage has been laid. There’s just the nitpicky bit about Noah heading overseas that’s getting in the way. Still, that is part of the uncertainty we mentioned before. Not everything in life is set in stone. Noah and Lauren will be husband and wife. The rest is anyone’s guess. We wish this couple a happy married life. Like this story? Be sure to Subscribe for more.
Take the work of photographer Camilla Courts. Obviously inspired by a certain House of Mouse and her cute as a button daughter Layla, she has come up with a unique take on the costume playtime that deserves to be seen and appreciated. It all began when she bought her child a princess outfit at Disneyland. Before they knew it, the duo were starring in several staged recreations of their favorite animated films. And they didn’t stay exclusive to Uncle Walt and his works. There’s even some Harry Potter and Star Wars thrown in for good measure. The photos are so magical, they make their pen and ink equivalents pale in comparison. Check them out. Like these photos? Be sure to Subscribe for more.
Alba Parejo was born with a rare condition known as congenital melanocytic nevus. Her body is literally covered in hundreds of moles, birthmarks, and dark patches. As a baby, she had surgery to try and remove many of them, and that has left her with both the occlusions and a series of scars. Tormented relentless by her peers, Alba is getting the best kind of revenge. Even with naysayers arguing how unacceptable her decision is/was, she is modeling and pursuing a career in the public eye. She is making her marks part of who she is. That’s what they’ve always been. Now, the haters know it as well. Sometimes, the only way to get past the pain is to own the reasons for it. Humanity has a hard time being kind and compassionate. What they really want to be is judgmental jerks. You go, girl! You are such an inspiration to everyone out there with a dream!

When expectant mom Louise Adams’ water broke at 22 weeks, she and her husband Jakk weren’t sure about what they were up against. Doctors said their baby would have very little chance at survival – five percent to be exact. Because this happened before the 24 week mark, they were told there wasn’t much that could be done to save their son and that a miscarriage would be inevitable. But Louise and Jakk refused to give up. During the time she was hospitalized and being monitored, she could still feel her son kicking and moving about. The couple chose instead to keep their faith that their unborn son Joseph would survive. They began to research different ways people had helped their baby survive the insurmountable odds that Joseph was facing. They read that drinking more than seven pints of water a day would help babies survive preterm labor. The idea behind the extra water is that it helps replenish amniotic fluid to help the baby thrive in the womb all while flushing out toxins. After 13 weeks, everything she had done to save her baby paid off and her son was born healthy at five pounds, 10 ounces. Thankfully this mom fought for her son and he, in turn, became a fighter too!

High Rock Drop Off is located on the East end of Grand Cayman Island in High Rock dive zone. These divers from Canada experienced some incredible diving while on Grand Cayman and mostly were amazed and surprised by the number of tunnels and channels that lead out to the "deep blue' . Most of these tunnels are narrow and with limited light from above, require dive lights to make your way through. Feeling a bit uneasy at seeing no bottom once they exited the tunnel, they soon got use to the new experience. A great dive location and many new lessons learned. The following information will give you an insight to this east end dive location.

This adorable little fellow hatched a day late and was left behind when his parents and siblings took to the water. They must have believed that the egg would not hatch. Luckily, a caring family saw what happened and watched for the parents' return. When it became clear that they were long gone, the family took him to the local veterinarian. Named Downie, after Tragically Hip singer, Gordon Downie, he was fostered with the veterinarian's family until he could be taken to a wildlife rehab centre. Here, he makes his way through the lawn, learning to eat grass and insects. He has no trouble finding food, but stairs are too big a challenge for his tiny legs. Downie grew strong enough over the summer to be released into the wild in time for migration.
These are two of four crows (the famous talking "Freds") that were rescued when their nest fell from a tree. After many hours, the parents did not return and the babies were going to starve. Cameron and his family raised the crows and hand fed them until they were old enough to feed themselves. They had to be taught how to find to find berries. They learned this so well that they flew to the yard next door and cleaned out Mrs. Hottner's berry patch. They unplugged the satellite dish too. Here, Cameron demonstrates berry picking for Russell Crow and Crow Magnon. When full, a crow will stash food for later and Russell decides to use Cameron's armpit as a hiding place. Crows actually have a sense of humor. Highly intelligent, these birds also learned to say "hello".

Victor Hubbard was a familiar face in his Kemah, Texas community, but no one knew what his story was until a kind woman took the time to speak with him. For three years, Victor stood on a street corner waiting for his mother to come and get him. As cars whizzed past him on the street corner where he camped out, he tried as best as he could to deal with his mental illness challenges but ultimately he was alone. Then God sent an Angel!!! Ginger Sprouse wanted to know more about the young man she passed on the street several times a day. So she went struck up a conversation with him. As Victor began to open up to her about being homeless and needing medical care, she knew right then and there that she wanted to help him out. It turns out, others in the community wanted to help, too. So the resourceful mother created the Facebook page “This is Victor” and people in the community began volunteering to help Victor get back on his feet. They drove him to doctor’s appointments, raised funds for him to afford the basic necessities and gave him a boost of confidence. Ginger even gave him a job as a cook at her cooking classes/private party business, Art of the Meal. Victor said “She helped me. It’s like grace.” Like this story? Be sure to Subscribe for more.
taying in the hospital for more than a few days can make a person yearn for their regular lives more than they realized. When little Madison Austin, 3, was cooped up in the hospital during an extended stay recently, she was craving a little excitement. Admitted since February, she’s been treated for a series of infections, the flu and various complications from a brain and muscle condition called Neuronal migration disorder. Although she was more than ready to return home, she couldn’t leave just yet. So the nursing staff at St. John’s Hospital in Springfield, Illinois, decided to make her hospital visit extra special. After learning from her mom Krista that Madison was obsessed with the “Hokey Pokey,” they gave her a wonderful surprise that kept her grinning from ear-to-ear the whole time. The group of nurses came by her room with a recording of the song and asked her to join them in a fun little “Hokey Pokey” dance party. Madison was overjoyed and clearly had the time of her life. What a wonderful way for these sweet nurses to lift their patient’s spirits. She’ll always remember this special moment. Like this story? Be sure to Subscribe for more.
