This Teen Waited 19 Years to Have a Family. It’s Never Too Late to Be Loved or Belong…

Nov 17, 2014 By Megan Berman 2

All 19-year-old Logan Hunt ever wanted was a family. He grew up in the foster care system after being given up for adoption as a toddler. He survived a failed adoption as a child and never felt as though he belonged anywhere. When Logan, whose legal name was Seth Miller, aged out of the system last year, he ended up homeless, alone, and living in a car. “Everything around me was pretty much empty,” he says.

But then last year, when a local news channel interviewed him for a story, Seth’s court-appointed special advocate found the couple who had adopted his biological sister and encouraged them to meet Seth. Although at first they were unsure, Robert and Ara Hunt eventually let their daughter Shyann meet the brother she never knew existed.

From that moment on, the Hunts knew that Seth belonged with them. Ara Hunt says…

I’ve had to tell him many times, “I’m sorry for not finding you sooner. I wish I had. I wish I knew about you, because I would have gotten you the minute you were born.”

Kit Kat had just become a mama for the second time and was nursing her litter a few years ago when a neighbor brought her three more babies to feed… Baby squirrels. They’d fallen out of a tree and been abandoned.

Nov 14, 2014 By Abraham 1

After a recent lecture, a little girl got a chance to ask Neil deGrasse Tyson a question — “How can first-graders help the earth.”

After taking a moment to think, Tyson had his answer. It’s simple, insightful, true, and even a little inspiring… So that’s good, right?

Yeah, except that it’s also a real pain to put into practice.

Bryan Cranston Reads Hilarious R-rated “Kids” Book (If Your Kid’s a Picky Eater, You’ll Relate)

Nov 13, 2014 By Joey White 0

If you had a baby or toddler two years ago, you probably saw the book Go the F*** to Sleep, accompanied a little while later by  Samuel L. Jackson’s fantastic reading of it, which he did because when he read it, he “fell out laughing.”

Now, author Adam Mansbach is back with another “kids” book that you can never — never — read to your kids. This one is called You Have to F***ing Eat, and this time around he enlisted Bryan Cranston to read the hilarious bedtime story…

(Yes, it is explicit and wonderfully inappropriate. Please don’t click play if this is going to offend you.)

Last weekend pastor and musician Chris Picco’s life fell apart — shockingly, and unspeakably fell apart.

This is almost too much to even write or read a simple paragraph about…and Chris is living it.

Here he is singing his baby to sleep…

Nov 12, 2014 By Abraham 0

Try to watch this mess of a race and not get irrationally frustrated. It’s almost impossible. It starts out with a boat running into a dock and only gets worse from there.

And all the while, a running commentary from the increasingly agitated moms and dads watching…

If you’re curious what’s going on here (because it’s too ridiculous to make sense of) here’s a helpful analysis.
