It can be hard for parents to do right by the children all of the time, especially parents who have jobs that ask them to work long hours in high stress situations. When this little girl got fed up with her father always being missing in action, she asked her dad if he would be willing to spend more time with her. Lauren and Michael came to an agreement and that was seemingly that.
Quaker decided to intervene and provide this family with the assistance that they needed in order to spend more time together. Dance is a huge part of Lauren’s life and she loves this activity more than anything else. Thanks to the good people at Quaker, she and her father were able to put together a plan that left their wife and mother in complete and total shock.
When the recital first begins, we see Michael’s wife calling in order to find out where he is and being greeted by his voicemail message. While this would seem to be business as usual, she has no idea what is about to happen next and even though they are taking a big risk by agitating this poor woman, we are here to let you know that the payoff that takes place here is more than worth the buildup.
The look on her face says it all, though, doesn’t it? She is clearly fed up with her husband’s inability to show up on time and looks ready to give him a piece of her mind. She calls him eight times and from the looks of it, it seems as if the father is neglecting his child yet again and while Michael and Lauren have a great relationship, she is worried about his absence.
Lauren steps out on stage and dedicates the special dance that she is about to do to both of her parents. It is at this point that we learn about the true surprise that remains in store for her parents and while we do not wish to give the whole thing away, let’s just say that it involves a hip hop style of dance and a very unexpected guest.
This video goes to show that you simply never know where someone’s heart is at until they show you for themselves. Let’s all take a moment to show the people that we love most how much we care about them as soon as possible!
He subsisted off tourist handouts and when these were not enough to fill his stomach, he would resort to eating garbage to stave off the hunger pains. Wildlife SOS finally stepped in and their goal was to ease the animal’s pain. In order to free the elephant, they had to move under the cover of darkness and so a daring midnight rescue was planned.
When Raju’s owner was confronted, the rescue team would not give an inch and Raju clearly sensed that help had arrived. He began to cry and while the team was surprised to see him react in such a manner, they knew that he was smarter than he let on. Thanks to helpful animal activists like these, stories like Raju’s will hopefully become a thing of the past one day.
Animals should never be subjected to the cruel whims of humans who do not truly care about them and if you see animal cruelty taking place, it is your responsibility to alert the proper authorities. No matter who you are or where you are from, there are organizations like Wildlife SOS who are ready and willing to spring into action at a moment’s notice if they are made aware of an animal’s suffering.
As for Raju, readers will enjoy having the chance to take a closer look at his amazing story. The video below provides viewers with a chance to learn more about everything that he has been through and the realities of his old life. We must admit that we got pretty choked up when we first saw Raju get free and we hope that elephants are allowed to live in peace from henceforth.
Seeing a majestic wild animal shackled in chains makes our blood boil and if these stories upset you in the same way, then take the time to pass this along to your closest friends and loved ones. This is certainly one of the most emotional rescues that we have ever borne witness to and it deserves to be seen by a much wider audience.
Here’s a video of the moment Raju was freed from his chains for the first time in his life!
And this video tell’s Raju’s full, heartbreaking story.
The gift is brightly colored and the child approaches it excitedly. While he pulls out the card immediately, he is initially skeptical. He is unsure if the gift is actually for him or if it is for someone else. When Jade confirms that the gift is for him, the child opens it with great fervor. He maintains the proper present opening etiquette and is sure to open up the card first.
He opens the card and some black and white photos come tumbling out. While the boy picked them up to take a closer look, he had no idea what he was looking at or the surprise that he was about to receive. Viewers at home will realize what he is looking at before he does and that is one of the best parts of this amazing clip. We had a lot of fun waiting for the realization to finally dawn on him.
The polite little boy still hasn’t figured out the significance of the pictures, God bless his heart, but he is willing to offer compliments anyway. He calls the pictures “beautiful” and decides to check out what is waiting for him in the gift bag. It is a white shirt and when he finally gets to read to what it says, the message is a simple one: Mummy is having a baby!
His eyes became moist as he realized that he was finally going to receive the sibling that he had been asking his mother for all this time. According to Jade, he had been asking her to make him a sibling for at least a year, so the disbelief and emotion that came pouring from the little boy was extremely understandable. Seeing this kind young man get his wish definitely hits us in the feel zone.
