Family Welcomes One-In-A-Million Identical Triplets
A family in Kansas City, Missouri just welcomed a set of identical triplets - something so rare, doctors sat the odds are one in a million. Caleb and Nicole Choge are the proud parents of the three boys, who are doing well after being born six weeks early.
The couple was originally told they were having twins, but when they got a second opinion after moving from Kenya, they found out it was actually three buns in the oven instead of two. Now the babies, Ron, Elkanah, and Abishai, join their two-year-old big brother and mom and dad get used to life as a family of six.
“As a dad, I have to think about how to feed my people,” Choge says. And we’ve got to figure out where to put all their new car seats. “I always said I’d never get a van,” the proud papa says. “But I think this is a humbling experience.”
Dolly Parton Donates 100-Millionth Book To Kids
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program sends kids free books from the time they’re born until the time they start kindergarten and they do it regardless of how much money mom and dad make. The singer started it back in 1995 and in just 10 years, Parton had donated a million books.
After extending the program from the U.S. to Canada, Australia, and the U.K., Imagination Library donations reached the tens of millions. And now, the country music star has delivered her 100-millionth book donation! They’re also starting a monthly young reader program with the Library of Congress that’s free and open to the public.
Stranger Pays $1,000 Power Bill For Teen On Life Support
A Michigan firefighter with a big heart paid off a family’s outstanding power bill so the electricity needed for their son’s ventilator would be turned back on. Firefighter Ryan McCuenwith Clinton Township responded to the emergency call mom Christy Stone placed after the home’s power was turned off because they couldn’t pay the bill.
She explained that her family has been overwhelmed with medical costs for her son Troy, 19, who has Duchenne muscular dystrophy and relies on the electrically powered ventilator to “breathe and stay alive” and another 15-year-old son who also has muscular dystrophy.
"When she explained the unpaid bill, her family's situation and how she didn't know what to do, it was a no-brainer for me," explains McCuen, 35. He paid the outstanding bill for $1,023 for the family and their power was back on 20 minutes later. How’s that for going above and beyond the call of duty?
