Loving Mother Took Photos of Her ‘Handicapped’ Daughter To Create a Whimsical Fairy Tale.

She is one of the most beautiful girls that I have ever seen.

Holly Spring is a talented photographer from New Zealand who is famous for her whimsical artworks. Her four-year-old daughter, Violet, is the subject of most of her ethereal works.

Violet was born without her left hand and was diagnosed to have Hirschsprung’s disease. Hirschsprung’s disease is a congenital condition that is caused by poor muscle movement in the intestines, and results in the blockage of a part of the bowel. When she was two and a half years old, Violet had to undergo a surgery that almost cost her life.

That was the moment I thought we were going to lose her,” states Holly. “From that point on I was like ‘I have to get these memories of her, I have to capture everything I can of her’.”

Holly wanted to show Violet that she can be who she wants to be, hence the fairy-tale like photos of her daughter. Through these pictures, Holly was able to highlight Violet’s beauty and charm.

She’s a very bright and fun-filled little girl,” says Holly. “She’s got so much character and wonder about her and she’s extremely brave. She’s been through a lot but she really has inspired me to be a photographer.”

Grandma Gives Birth to Her Own Grandchild. Wait… What?

Grandmother gives birth to her own grandchild.

A mother’s love is definitely infinite. There’s nothing she wouldn’t do for her children. Then 53-year old Cindy Reutzel gave her daughter Emily probably the greatest gift a mother can give to her daughter.

Three years ago, Emily Jordan was devastated when she was diagnosed with cervical cancer at a young age of 29, the doctors advised her to have a radical hysterectomy, which crushed her and husband Mike’s hopes of having a baby. What’s even worse is that before surgery, her doctor delivered more devastating news: Emily was pregnant. The couple had to make a painful decision and went ahead with the surgery in order to save Emily’s life.

"I can't describe what that was like after finding out you have cancer, after finding out your chance of ever carrying a baby is gone," Emily said....

This Man Will Prove that the Richest Man is Not Always Listed in the Forbes Magazine!

Share if he makes you feel proud to be Human.

Heaven is for real. At least this is the statement Indian Actor Varun Pruthi is vindicating with his new charity campaign where he promises to shell out one thousand rupee to fifty God-fearing poor street hawkers if his controversial video breaches a million hits by Diwali.

Truly enough, his campaign has caught one of the inspiring moments not projected on the daily screen. He purchased a samosa from a visually impaired samosa street vendor and pays it with a thousand rupee.

Figuring that the generous amount is way too costly for just a 10-ruppe worth samosa, the vendor returns the money to Pruthi. However, as the actor insists of paying a price tag, the amount boils down to a hundred. Still marveled by the amount, the street hawker returned the change and accepted a hug instead adding that it is better given to those who need them the most. ...
