42-year-old becomes mother for the 4th time – when she sees her daughter, she falls apart

Elena Shpengler knew something was wrong with her baby when the doctors looked concerned immediately after her delivery. Before handing her the baby, the doctors started making calls, wrapped her up in blankets and wouldn’t let Elena see her.

After her desperate plea, she was handed over the baby. She picked through the blankets and what she saw shocked her that she lost consciousness.Her daughter Darina, had half a face. She was suffering from a serious genetic mutation that left her with no lips or chin.

Doctors advised her to leave the baby at the hospital. This meant that their daughter would go into their country’s grim orphanage system. The idea of it killed her inside so Elena and her husband, Yury, refused.

“She is ours, our girl,” Yury told Elena.

Since the baby was born, the Shpenglershave been
treated with cruelty, not only from strangers, but from the closest people to
them and to avoid more drama,they opted to move away.

“Only my sister supported me, all other relatives just stopped any communication with us. My brothers, their children, and my husband’s mother – nobody wanted to accept Darina.” Elena said

“We do not hide Darina from people. We take her everywhere
with us,” Elena said. “My husband Yury does not feel ashamed either. He takes
Darina everywhere. People told us to put a mask on her but he replied: ‘If you
don’t want, don’t look at her – but we accept her the way she is.”

Like most children her age, she loves watching cartoons, wearing princess dresses, singing, and going on long walks with her mom and dad but outside the house, People’s reactions to her condition made raising her normal very difficult.

Darina was denied access to kindergarten as the school thought other children “would be scared.” Social services sends two teachers to visit Darina once a week so she can get a basic education, but Elena wants her to be able to get out and make friends.

“She is such a sociable girl,” she said. “We have bought
lots of toys for her but nothing can replace friends.”

Doctors told them thatDarina will have to undergo surgeries
every two years. The three-year-old has already completed one surgery where her
mouth was sewn to make it smaller, and she is believed to be recovering well.The Shpenglers
have raised money to pay for medical treatment in Moscow. “The truth is this
trouble has only brought us together,” Elena said.

10-Year-Old With Autism Writes Poem For Homework, His Teacher Is Lost For Words

Recently, when 10-year-old Benjamin Giroux, was given a school assignment that required him to write a poem titled “I Am”, he surprised his parents and teachers with the incredibly amazing piece he came up with!

The young boy from Plattsburgh, New York, has Asperger’s syndrome, a form of autism. This means that he is not exactly one to express much emotion or talk too much. “When we ask him how his day went when he gets home from school, we don’t get much more than a one-word answer.” Sonny Giroux, Benjamin’s father, told TODAY.

However, when he received his assignment, he was quite excited about getting it done. When he got home, he headed to the family kitchen table and didn’t raise his head until he was finished.

Benjamin was given the first two words in every sentence. From there, the rest of the poem was up to him to complete as he pleased. Here is what he wrote:

I am odd, I am new
I wonder if you are too
I hear voices in the air
I see you don’t, and that’s not fair
I want to not feel blue
I am odd, I am new
I pretend that you are too
I feel like a boy in outer space
I touch the stars and feel out of place
I worry what others might think
I cry when people laugh, it makes me shrink
I am odd, I am new
I understand now that so are you
I say I, “feel like a castaway”
I dream of a day that that’s okay
I try to fit in
I hope that someday I do
I am odd, I am new.

It came to light that Benjamin had always felt different because he was autistic and at times, it made him stand out from the other children. It is how he explained that in the poem that is truly special and captivating.

Since he wrote it, the poem has gone viral and even the National Autism Association highlighted and shared it with others.

Kid Sends Letter To God After Dog Dies, Mom In Shock When Letter From Heaven Shows Up

A little girl, Meredith, and her dog, Abbey, were the definition of best-friends.
Unfortunately, at 14 years old, Abbey passed away, leaving her best-friend
heartbroken and desperately missing her canine.

According to a post on Suspended Coffees’ Facebook page, Abbey wanted to make sure Abbey would be okay when she got to heaven. So with the help of her mother, she decided to write God a letter. Her innocent and sweet words will have you in tears.

Meredith wanted to make sure Abbey would be okay when she got to heaven. So with the help of her mother, she decided to write God a letter
Meredith wanted to make sure Abbey would be okay when she got to heaven. So with the help of her mother, she decided to write God a letter

In the letter she wrote, “Dear God, will you please take care of my dog? She
died yesterday and is with you in heaven. I miss her very much. I am happy
that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick.

I hope you will play with her. She likes to swim and play with balls. I am
sending a picture of her so when you see her you will know that she is my dog.
I really miss her. Love, Meredith.

After, the mother-child duo put the letter in an envelope with a picture of Abbey and Meredith and addressed it to God/Heaven. They also put their return address on it and pasted several stamps on the front of the envelope since Meredith thought it would take lots of stamps to get the letter to heaven. Later on they dropped the letter at the post office.

A few days later,  Meredith received a
special package. It was wrapped in gold and addressed to her. Inside the
package was a book, ‘When a Pet Dies’ by Mr. Rogers’, and inside the book was
Meredith’s original letter, as well as a note from God to Meredith.

The note read, “Abbey arrived safely in heaven. Having the picture was a big
help and I recognized her right away. Abbey isn’t sick anymore. Her spirit is
here with me just like it stays in your heart.

Abbey loved being your dog. Since we don’t need our bodies in heaven, I don’t have any pockets to keep your picture in so I am sending it back to you in this little book for you to keep and have something to remember Abbey by.


Thank you for the beautiful letter and thank your mother for helping you
write it and sending it to me. What a wonderful mother you have. I picked her
especially for you.

I send my blessings every day and remember that I love you very much. By the
way, I’m easy to find. I am wherever there is love. Love, God.”

While the story might be really sweet and heartwarming, we
think the message behind it is even much more valuable. A small act of kindness
makes all the difference.

Off-Duty Cop Immediately Interrupts Date After Overhearing This Conversation

Being quick to help someone in trouble can sometimes be the
deciding factor between a potentially life or death situation. Knowing this
well, an officer did not hesitate to jump in and save the day when he noticed a
man treating his date inappropriately. In a recent Reddit.com thread, an
anonymous user explained the incident in the post below:

“So, possibly one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. I mean you know how
you hear the “women want him, men want to be him” stuff in old movies? Well I’m
a man and by god I wanted to be this guy. Anyway!

I’m having dinner with my girlfriend at the time, and behind us are a couple on a date. It is not going well. Guy was being rather creepy and making some pretty inappropriate comments, the girl doesn’t look at all comfortable.

The girl finishes her appetizer really quickly, my guess is she wanted to
get it over with. Guy proceeds to comment on it and says “well, least I know
you can swallow right?”. Loudly.

Girl goes red and tells him that isn’t appropriate, he literally waves his
hand in a “shoo” type motion and says “oh calm down I was going to find out in
a few hours anyway”.

I missed her exact reply as she moved to a hushed tone, but it was fairly
obvious what was being said – f*ck no, f*ck off, f*ck this. He responded with
“sweetheart I picked you up, I know where you live”. She lost the color in her
face and said nothing.

I’m not one of those “get involved” type of people, but there is no way I’m sitting here watching this go down. I get up. I don’t know what I’m going to do, but I’m 23, fighting fit and happy to put that man through a wall.

I was halfway out of my chair when a hand came down on my shoulder and I
look up to this mid-50s but super fit guy who says “Easy.. I’ve got this one
son”. Absolute, total confidence in his voice..

He walks over, grabs a nearby chair, flips it around and sits down with the
couple. Then.. he pulls out his police ID and puts it on the table. Now the guy
doesn’t have any color in his face.

Cop: “So, I’m quietly celebrating my daughters birthday with my family when
I distinctly hear you threaten this young lady, would you care to explain
yourself?”

Guy: “I, ah, well, um, you see..”

Cop: “That’s what I thought. Now see, we take a very dim view of that kind
of thing, so right now I’m deciding if I want to have some of my buddies come
pick you up.”

Guy: “oh no well that…”

Cop: “But that would disrupt everyone’s dinner, so how about you hand me
your ID, because I wouldn’t want you running off on me, then you go see one of
the staff here and settle your bill.. the full bill now, this young lady
shouldn’t go hungry on account of your poor behavior. Or we can go with the
first option, I’ll leave it up to you.”

Guy: “No no! That’s perfectly fine!” *hands over ID, gets up and walks very quickly in the direction of the counter*

Cop: *while writing down the guys details* “Sorry about that miss, I hope
I’m not intruding it just seemed like you could use some help. Oh and don’t
worry, if you want to pursue this further I’ll have some of the boys pick him
up on his way home, we can definitely take this further.”

Girl: “No, thank you so much, I wanted to run out 30 minutes ago but he
drove me here”.

Cop: *shifts from hard-ass cop to comforting father figure in about half a
second* “Well I’m here with my daughter, she’s about your age, perhaps you’d
like to finish your meal with us? We can take you home afterwards if you’d
like, unless you’d prefer to call someone else?”

Girl: “Oh.. that would be really nice.. thank you so much!”

*guy returns, so does the cop*

Cop: “There you go.. now I have your details right here so I highly
recommend you don’t go near or contact this young lady ever again.”

Guy: “Yes yes of course, I’m so sorry!”

The guy pretty much fled the restaurant, the girl went and sat with the cop
and his family and by the time we left they were still sitting around talking
and laughing about random crap.

It was hands down the best way I have ever seen anybody handle any
situation, ever.

That cop is my hero.

What a way to handle the situation!”
