The “World’s Tiniest Girl” Continues To Prove Doctors Wrong.

in News

There’s nothing worse than a pregnant mother discovering there’s something wrong with your unborn child.

Despite having planned for a natural birth doctors advise you to have a c-section is nerve-wracking,when really thats nothing to be worried about.

A few ago one woman from England went into labor earlier than expected, taking a plunge into the unknown.

Little did they realise their lives were about to change forever, but not in the way anticipated …

Emma Newman and her husband Scott Garside had three healthy daughters when Emma fell pregnant with their fourth.

The couple prepped to welcome baby number four and her scans never caused any reason for alarm.

“I was massive,” Emma said, “so we didn’t think there was anything to be worried about.”

The unexpected

Emma went into labor four weeks early thats when things started to become a worry.

“They examined me and said I was only 24 weeks pregnant but I’d already had scans and knew that wasn’t right,” she said. “I started to panic.”

Doctors explained to the couple to expect a premature baby,  they just thought it meant having a child slightly underweight.

However baby Charlotte, arrived  weighing just two pounds, her appearance practically stunned the couple.

Charlotte’s parents carried the gene for an extremely rare genetic condition known as primordial dwarfism.

It is so uncommon only 200 people in the whole world are known to have it.

Primordial dwarfs are born incredibly small, and tend not much as they age resulting in them looking like tiny human dolls.

It hasn’t been easy for Charlotte who has grown to just three foot tall.

Charlotte’s parents weren’t even able to hold her for days after she was born as she only weighed 2 lbs.

For the first 13 weeks of life she stayed in the hospital, doctors warned her parents she may not even make it to her first birthday.

Primordial dwarfs commonly suffer from a range of health problems, mostly relating to their unnatural size.

As they increase in age, the risks of dying from a sudden aneurysm are high.

It’s extremely rare for a primordial dwarf to survive past the teenage years, but Charlotte’s a fighter as the little girl continues to flourish.

Charlotte is just over two feet tall today, her sister describes her as being surprisingly tough.

When people first meet her they are afraid she might break if they touch her – but she’s quite scrappy and doesn’t sit still for a second,” older sister Chloe explains.

She loves tearing around the house and being thrown in the air.”

The future

Rather than fret about how much time they may have left with Charlotte, her parents enjoy everyday activities.

She is such a driven, determined person,” said Emma.

We’ve stopped thinking about the what-ifs, now we’re having the best time we can.”

For them, part of the fun of raising their children is photographing Charlotte beside objects that look small to us.

Take a look at Charlotte in the video clip below:

Bullied teen surprised everyone after losing 139lbs to fit into formal dress

in Uncategorized

There are a million and one reasons with respect to why somebody may need to lose weight.

Reasons range from health benefits or fitting into certain size clothes, essentially it could be a result of the social stigma of being overweight.

For Josie Desgrand, a teenager from Australia, it was Instagram.

At only 16-years of age, Josie tipped the scales at 280Ibs and knew something needed to give.

Dissatisfied with her body, she was always reminded how different others looked as she looked through her Instagram feed and saw beautiful women staring back at her.

She had attempted weight control plans previously, yet her inability to stick to them left her on a spiralling staircase of self pity and overeating

Eventually, she decided it was time to put her foot down …

 Josie explains her ‘Eureka!’ moment to us.

I went into my room and stripped down to my underwear,” she said. Thats when she made a deal with herself. “No longer fat Josie.”

I took pictures of myself at different angles, excited for my next weight loss journey. I used tape measure and wrote down my dimensions knowing I had a long way to go, but I wanted to track every change, no matter how small.”

Josie set herself small targets and began to keep track of he progress. Before long, the 16-year-old noticed changes here and there. She adopted a low-carb, no-sugar diet and upped her water intake.

Her dad also joined her weight-loss journey by shedding the pounds himself – she was able to slim down to 198Ibs through dieting alone.

It was then that she kicked things up a notch by joining a gym.

She said: “Working out at the gym gave me the extra push to reach my goal weight.”

Instead of being a source of envy and depression, Instagram became one of Josie’s strongest motivators. She began to accumulate followers who not only wanted to see her transformation, but also take tips and advice.

“I shared my meals and progress on my Instagram account @nolongerfatjosie. My followers quickly grew, and each was more supportive than the last. ‘You look great!’ They wrote. ‘Mmm, do you have the recipe?’”

With people from all around the world along for my journey, I never thought about quitting. Putting aside an hour each night, I responded to every person. Being in their position before, I now wanted to help as many people as I could. ‘Keep going,’ I would write back when someone thought they couldn’t do it anymore.”

The change

Josie now weighs less than half her previous weight at around 138Ibs.

What  initially began as a diet ended up becoming a lifestyle change which Josie has reaped the benefits of.

What an incredible transformation by an extremely determined young woman. She’s an inspiration for people looking to change all over the world.

Take a look at the amazing transformation in the pictures below:

We have selected 8 warning signs that indicate you may be going through a rough patch just don’t forget to stop, breathe and recharge.

1. Very Irritatable.

Everything can get on your nerves, the question is in how many seconds. Someone will get you off of your shoes just by stating something that steps on your nerves or by being disrespectful, your nerves are on the edge and you feel very, very irritated. Everyone feels this way, try to help yourself get back on your feet for your own good, and do things that are making you feel comfortable and safe.

2. Lowered Motivation Levels.

As every new day comes by your motivation goes lower and lower. Suddenly you don’t feel motivated even for getting up of bed and dress up. You deeply wish to take as much time as you need and do nothing. You are feeling like you are incapable of doing work and it is making you even more anxious than before. This could be a sign of depression.

3. More Anxiety Attacks Than Usual

Anxiety can also come as a result of your exhaustion. You feel more scared to begin to do some work, you can get up at night and feel anxiety hitting you, you can’t focus on anything because of it. You’re just feeling more and more stressed as usual, and you need to center yourself, try to do yoga or meditation in order to keep yourself in balance and help the anxiety problem.

4. Experience Trouble Sleeping

You get up at night and you can’t continue to sleep, or you sleep too much and still feel like you can’t get up, you feel worse throughout the day and you hope that tomorrow you’ll sleep better but you won’t. Stress and anxiety are the reason why the body is keeping you up. Depression will lead you to sleep more or inconsistent, making you awake at night and sleep throughout the day. Whatever the combination is, it’s maybe best to seek a doctor at this point.

5. Meaningless Things Upset You

Smallest conversations can upset you, even if you feel them as the person is not happy or doesn’t pay you enough attention at the moment. You can break down and start taking things very emotionally because of your increased sensitivity. Take some time and try to reconstruct your world. Try to talk to yourself and set the bars up higher and promise yourself that you won’t get hurt that easily. You’ll boost yourself a bit.

6. Feeling Dizzy And Nauseous

Feelings of dizziness, headaches, nervously beating of the heart and feeling like you are sick and can’t make it through the day are still signs of depression and anxiety, and the source of it is stress. Stress is a part of every single one of us and when we get a mental breakdown we feel nauseous and sick as manifestation. Prevent this while you can. You are the best when you need to help yourself, and if you don’t help yourself, no one will.

7. Feel Like Crying For No Reason

When you feel bad and stuck into this bad place, you feel like you need to cry and you do cry. Suddenly you feel like the whole world plots something against you and there’s isn’t a correct answer to your question “Why?” You are at this point, sad and desperate for a better tomorrow. Crying doesn’t have to be a bad thing, and tears are not always enemies. Maybe you’ll feel better when you cry it out, all the energy that was stuck into you will fade through it.

8. Begin To Feel Detached

As you curl yourself more into your need to repair and get on your feet, you’ll also start to feel detached from the world around you. Your friends are not willing to call you anymore, because you cut them off by saying “no” to every single invitation. The source of detachment can also be feeling detached from yourself and you end up as comfortably numb. You don’t feel bad or good, in fact, now you feel like you don’t feel anything. Stop and relax. Take your time off, meditate, go on vacation if you can, visit a good place by yourself, just try to do some slight changes into your life at this point. It’s crucial for you to be better.

Husband doesn’t come home from Afghanistan, wife opens his laptop after funeral and finds file hidden from her.

in News

Todd Weaver passed away after an IED on his second tour of Afghanistan back in 2010. At the tender age of 26, he left behind a loving wife Emma and his sweet little baby girl Kiley, so young she may never remember her loving father. This story will give you goosebumps the way this brave soldier has been honored for the way he lived his life. An amazing example of this is what he left before his final day for his beloved wife and daughter.

Two days following Todd’s funeral Emma opened up his laptop and froze as she had no idea that she would stumble across this. The harsh reality for Emma, from Hampton, Virginia, when she learned about the heartbreaking news of her loving husband and that she would never get to say goodbye was horribly painful. His body was flown home where a memorial service was held where friends and family could pay their respects and requested to make a contribution called Children Of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund.

Emma opened the laptop two days after she laid her beloved husband to rest she simply couldn’t believe her eyes.
On his desktop, were two documents one marked ‘Dear Emma,’ the other ‘Dear Kiley.’ Prior to the tragic event, Todd had written his two ladies a goodbye letter have a read of these inspirational letters.

In both letters, he spills his heart out but his words were selected to give them both strength when he was gone, this is what he wrote in his letter to Emma:

Dear Emma:
Well if you are reading this, I guess I did not make it home and therefore, I was not able to remind you again of how much I love you. I love you so much baby and I will always love you. Although I may not be here right now, take comfort in the fact that I am watching over you right now. I am not gone and I will always be with you in spirit. I know this time must be hard for you but I also know how strong you are. Never forget that God knew what was best for us before we were even born. Take comfort in that. This happened for a reason. Although you may not believe it now, you will one day. I want you to know just how important you are to me. I could not ask for a more caring, beautiful and loving wife.

The memories that we have shared over the last few years have been the best of my life. Although it may seem like my life was cut short, I lived a life that most can only dream of. I married the perfect woman. I have a beautiful daughter that amazed me every day. I even had two great dogs — at least most of the time. I couldn’t ask for anything more. If you feel sad, just think back to the memories that we shared. Look at our daughter and how beautiful she is. Be strong for her. Remind her about her Daddy and tell her that I loved her more than anything else in the world. Her birth was the best day of my life and she was the best thing that ever happened to me. Her smile and laughter represent all that is good and beautiful in this world.

Tell her that Daddy is in heaven now and will watch over her and protect her every minute of every day. I love you Emma. But never be afraid to do what you need to do to be happy. It is so important that you continue to find happiness in your life. Although you may think this is impossible right now, have faith. Much better times are coming. You and Kiley have a wonderful life ahead of you and I am so happy to have shared some of it with you.
I love you. Your loving Husband,

The second letter is from Todd to his 9-month-old daugher, Kiley:

Dear Kiley, My Sweetie:
Although you may not remember me, I want you to know how very much your Daddy loves you. I left for Afghanistan when you were 9 months old. Leaving you was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. You are so very special to me sweetie — you are truly a gift from God. The best day of my life was the day you were born. Every time I saw you smile my heart would just melt. You were my sweetie — my life was not complete until you were born. I am so sorry I will not be able to see you grow up. But remember, your Daddy is not gone. I am in heaven now smiling down on you every day.

You are so very lucky to have such a wonderful Mom to take care of you. Make sure you are good for her and help her out whenever you can. Always remember to say your prayers at night and be thankful for all your many blessings. Never forget how important and special you are to so many people. We love you so very much. When you get older and start school, do your best and try to learn as much as you can about the world you live in. Always be nice and caring to others and you will discover that the world will be nice to you. But when things aren’t going your way, never forget that God knows what is best for you and everything will work out in the end.

You have such a bright and beautiful future ahead of you. Have fun. Enjoy it. And remember, your Daddy will always be proud of you and will always love you. You are and will always be my sweetie. With very much love,
Your Daddy

A Moment of Rage Changed My Baby’s Life Forever & This Is Why I Want You To Know

in Uncategorized

All day long I had been fielding text messages from Xavier’s father about how difficult  the child was.

I informed his father we would try find another solution so he wouldn’t need to watch him during the day.

Xavier’s father had been alone with him for 2 hours maximum, and everything seemed ok.

His dad worked during the night, so the plan was for him to look after Xavier during the day while I worked, and then we would swap over.

Although my former partner raised a 10-year-old  I was slightly nervous about the situation, but he kept reassuring me that he had it under control.

Not once did it cross my mind that my son was in danger.

I replied saying I will be home soon and to hang in there. I kept thinking, “just a few more hours and then I can be back home with my baby.”

At 2:30 I got a text that every mother hopes they will never get. “Xavier stopped breathing. Come home now.

Immediately i called his father and questioned what happened, where he replied, “He choked on milk and we are going to Seattle Children’s Hospital.”

Choking on my tears I gathered my things and headed to the hospital. Once I got there, I heard my baby crying so I thought its going to be okay.

A team of doctors surrounded my tiny 10-pound baby. Once things settled down, they allowed me go over and hold his tiny hand.

I knew something was not right as he suddenly looked pale.

His father was preoccupied with his phone and didn’t have much to say.

Xavier was eventually brought back into the room where I held him. As the doctors kept coming in and out of the room, Xavier began to get fussy again.

I thought these were good things until they informed me there was bleeding in his brain. Instantly I turned to his father and asked, “How could this happen?

His father didn’t have much to say, and just kept repeating, “He was choking on milk.

I had to lay Xavier down because they were going to intubate him, and most parents don’t want to witness that kind of thing.

I broke down when we left the room. I just thought how could this be happening to my sweet, little baby?

I realised child abuse was suspected once they explained the brain bleed due to a non-accidental trauma. I was so angry.

Xavier was put into a medically induced coma for 2 weeks while they worked tirelessly to stop the seizures.

They slowly weaned him off medication but warned me he may not wake up. I was taken from room after room, with doctor upon doctor, to prepare me.

We were fighting against two different things. One was the trauma, and the time he went without oxygen to the brain.

I heard everything from “He might be blind” to “He may never be able to learn, walk, talk, move…”

But still I knew he would come back to me.

On the night of the incident his father was arrested for first degree child abuse.

I’m still unsure of the details of what surrounding that day, and not sure if I ever will.

Nearly 3 months on from the injury, I focus less on the “why” and more on the “now what.”

I try to be present every single moment with my baby, now. I am grateful to God for bringing my baby back to me.

My mother lives with me now as I am a single parent and work around the clock  to provide for my baby.

We have so many doctors and so many appointments, it’s a wonder I remember them all.

He is in speech therapy, and is also going to be attending Anat Baniel Method therapy to help awaken his brain and re-wire it.

Everyone keeps saying how lucky we are it occurred while he was so young, and that babies are resilient.

There is also a high risk of developing Cerebral Palsy, which we will be able to determine in a 1.5 years.

I strongly believe the more we work with him, the better his odds and he sees people for early intervention services.

You would probably think he was a vegetable if you were to look at his MRI scan as the damage is extensive.

He takes anti-seizure medication which could take up to 2 years to get off of it.

The full extent of his damage is unknown for a few years because his brain is still developing.

He  is my miracle baby, my reason for getting out of bed every morning as he is fighting this entire time.

Time and time again, he has proven he wants to live and be present so we continue to fight.

I am grateful every moment of every day for God bringing him back to me and for all those who are still praying for my baby.

When informed he may not live I prayed he would come back to me.

I was so happy when I finally ot to change his dirty diapers again as he is so precious to me.

Even if he can’t see, walk or take care of himself, he is the world to me everything I always wanted.

Prior to  the injury, my house was littered with pamphlets about shaking babies and what to do to stop it.

You put your baby down. You walk away. You go cry somewhere, or scream, or talk to someone.

Get  your frustrations out, and then return to your  baby and start over again.

Xavier still cries and fusses to this very day, and there are moments where I have to put him down and walk away.

Because as a parent sometimes that’s what you have to do. Despite his father was unfaithful, he wasn’t violent and he had a 10-year-old.

I thought this only  happened to other people and not someone like me.

Hurting his own son, was something I never imagined him doing I never would have left him in his care.

His confidence was so convincing that everything would be ok he could do this since we couldn’t afford childcare.

Hopefully someone reading our story will take all of it to heart and realize how important it is to not shake a baby.

No matter what never shake a baby. It can be avoided so easy, now a moment of rage has changed my baby forever.

Children at risk of sight damage and cancer using screen time too much

in Uncategorized

Investing excessive time staring at screens is making kids more prone to be short sighted, become overweight and develop cancer, specialists say.

A survey of 80 studies on at least 200,000 individuals has ranked cell phones and tablets closely to sugary beverages as one of the greatest dangers for youth obesity.

Being overweight can result in a dozen type of cancer, including breast, colon, kidney, liver, ovarian, pancreas and prostate.

There is also a danger of dying at a young age, by spending excessive time on contraptions while harming their’ sight.

The quantity of short sightedness in youngsters has multiplied in 50 years.

Scientists say the discoveries are a ‘significant concern’ and call for more control on junk food ads, which heighten the effects of kids not doing enough excercise.

‘The report highlights the importance of acting early to help prevent cancer,’ Sophia Lowes of Cancer Research UK explains.

Obese children are five times more likely to be obese as an adult, which is worrying because then they’ll be at an increased risk of different types of cancer.

‘That’s why it’s vital we see a 9pm watershed on junk food adverts on TV and similar protection for children viewing adverts on-demand and online.’

Experts state as leading to children doing less exercise, sitting inside looking at screens this entices youngsters to overeat on snacks.

They call this ‘passive over-consumption’ – meaning children snack on junk foods which they often see advertised on the same devices they’re spending their time.

In addition to the obesity and cancer risks, spending too much time in front of screens also increase the number of children with myopia – short-sightedness.

The proportion of children worldwide with short-sightedness has went from 7.2 per cent to 16.4 per cent over the last 40 years.

This effect has been dubbed ‘digital myopia’, and King’s College London researchers.

A separate study, found that every hour a child day spent on devices raised their risk of sight damage by three per cent.

Past research has suggested children spend, on average, eight hours a day using gadgets.

Professor Chris Hammond, from King’s College, told The Telegraph: ‘I think it is a significant concern.

We do believe that young children staying indoors and spending hours on screens is bad for eyesight, not to mention obesity and fitness.

‘I think our concept in myopia is clearly that close work is a risk factor, and outdoor activity is protective.’

Eye expert Dr Mohamed Dirani wrote in the British Journal of Opthamology:

The age of smart device uptake is getting younger, with many two-year-olds spending up to two hours a day on devices.

The use and misuse of smart devices, particularly in our paediatric populations, must be closely monitored to address the emerging phenomenon of digital myopia.

Elvis Presley’s grandson is all grown up looking exactly like him

in News

With regards to music, there’s only one genuine King! Elvis Presley captured the hearts of various ages with his voice and unique ability.

The way that his music lives on today is demonstration of his immortal capacity.

Obviously, in spite of Elvis’ passing on August 16, 1977, there have been numerous paranoid fears fuelling the possibility that he’s not really gone.

Actually, I’ve never been persuaded by any of them. I’ve wanted to simply acknowledge the fact and appreciate the music he left behind.

However when I saw these photos of Elvis’ solitary grandson – Lisa Marie’s 26-year-old child – Benjamin, I stopped in my tracks.

I simply needed to share these for every person who misses Elvis himself … Benjamin is the spitting picture of his granddad.

Elvis burst on to the scene as a 20-year-old, and music was never the same again.

Today, his only grandson, Benjamin, is all grown up, leaving Elvis fans everywhere throughout the world in awe at the similarity between them.

In a specific light one could nearly be deceived into believing that Elvis is as yet alive …

The Tuple-conceived whiz was hitched to Priscilla Presley and they had one tyke together – Lisa Marie Presley, who has four offspring of her own.

Tragically, Elvis never got the chance to meet his grandkids, but it would definitely warm his heart to realize that his grandson looks like his double.

The King of Rock and Roll was born in Mississippi and moved to Tennessee when he was 13.

His profession started in the mid-50s, when he recorded a melody with Sam Phillips for Sun Records.

A while later, Elvis marked a record manage RCA Victor and discharged his first enormous hit.

The rise of “Heartbreak Hotel” to the top of the charts was a very fast one.

Before the finish of the 60’s, Elvis had turned out to be a standout amongst the most compelling specialists in rock n’roll history.

His appearances were provocative to a few, however the general population who gone to his shows were left amazemed by the sheer ability to entertain.

When he passed on of a heart attack in 1977, the world was left to lament the icon.

The King never got the opportunity to meet his grandson, yet there’s no mixing up the blood lines in 26-year-old Benjamin’s veins.

Although Benjamin Keough didn’t follow his granddad’s love for music … the likenesses are amazing.

If you agree that he looks like his grandfather then please SHARE this post with your friends on Facebook.
