10-year-old Braden Baker was born with a hearing impairment. He's been wearing hearing aids since he was only 7 months old. But when Braden's dog ate his hearing aids not once, but twice, his mother had a serious conversation with him about how expensive they can be.
She explained to him that there are people all over the world with hearing loss that cannot afford hearing aids. This was extremely eye opening for Braden and he decided to come up with a way to help those people. That's when he started a fundraiser to help raise money for kids with hearing impairments all over the world.
Braden has since raised over $20,000 and is using that money to purchase hearing aids and personally go deliver them to people all over the world. What an amazing boy! I'm sure his mama is quiet proud of how he used his situation to help others!
Love is a beautiful thing. But love between a little boy and his pet cat. . .now that’s just adorable! And this precious pair is proof that God has a purpose for all of His creatures.
You see, Larry -- a large, orange cat -- was abandoned by his original owner. But a kindhearted woman named Michelle took him in.
Just a few months later, Michelle learned she was pregnant. And as it turns out, God had brought Larry into her life for a very special reason...to serve as a furry guardian angel to her son Abel.
“From the minute Abel came home, Larry was in love,” says Michelle.
And the feeling was mutual. Since day one, baby Abel has been in love with his fur-baby, Larry.
Larry was the cause of Abel’s first smiles and giggles. At 9 months, Larry was Abel’s first word, although the little boy pronounced it “Yarry” at first.
And as Abel continues to grow, so does the bond between these two.
If Abel cries, Michelle says that Larry runs to his side to comfort him. As Abel moves from room to room, he makes sure his ginger bestie is right by his side.
Their friendship brings a smile to all who see it. But it also is a beautiful reminder of the special purpose God gives to all of us, whether we walk on two legs or four!
Larry, who was abandoned and homeless, has now found a love like he’s never known. And Abel has a special friendship that he will remember and cherish for his entire life. God clearly meant for these two to come together!
