To Make Their Daughter Feel Special, Parents Got Tattoos Similar To Their Daughter’s Birthmark
They wanted their daughter to feel proud and not embarrassed by her birthmark.
For her 40th birthday, mother Tanya Phillips did something unusual. Instead of spending her big day on luxury dinner or a special trip, she underwent a full leg tattooing of a big birthmark. Needless to say, the four-hour procedure was painful.
While many find Tanya’s choice of birthday celebration as quite strange, it was a very special choice for her. The unusual tattoo design was actually patterned on her daughter Honey-Rae’s strawberry-rose birthmark, which covers almost half of the right side of her body.

Photos of Parents’ Last Moments with Their Lifeless Babies Will Send You to Tears
So heartbreaking! I can’t even imagine the pain in their hearts.
When Mike and Cheryl Haggard were about to lose their son Maddux Achilles Haggard in 2005, they did something ordinary parents wouldn’t even think of.
Before taking off the life-support attached to their son with a condition called myotubular myopathy, they decided to call photographer Sandy Puc to take black and white photos of them spending their last moments with him.
That heartbreaking moment was definitely too painful for any parent to imagine. But those photographs that memorialised the existence of Maddux actually inspired Cheryl Haggard and Sandy Puc to start a non-profit organisation called “Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep”.
“That night was the worst night of my life. But when I look at the images, I am not reminded of my worst night. I’m reminded of the beauty and blessings he brought,” Cheryl wrote in their website....
Helmet Camera Captures the Terrifying Moment These Brave Firefighters Rescued Some Kids
Much respect to these guys. Wow, that was intense!
A dreadful yet dramatic video was released by Fresno Fire Department showing the rescue of three children trapped inside a burning apartment. Captured by two helmet mounted cameras, the footage shows how these firefighters make way through the thick smoke caused by the fire in search of the children. You can barely see anything but notice the glass shattering during the intense rescue operation.
"The mother had given us a general direction of where the kids were to be located. It's zero visibility inside the building so we're kind of using, we're feeling down the wall trying to recognize objects," said Palmer, the Fresno Fire Captain.
Fortunately, the three children--a one year old boy, three and four year old girls although unconscious from toxic smoke are blessed enough to be rescued by such a brave team just in time before the situation gets worst.
Watch the terrifying video:
These firefighters are the world's modern day heroes and they really live up to that. They don't mind risking their own lives just to protect and save other people's lives and that for me is true heroism....
