Heroic Four-Year-Old Saves Family From Fire
As parents, it’s our job to protect our little ones and keep them safe, but a little girl in Florida has saved her family and she’s only four. Mesha Farland was playing with her baby brother in their Jacksonville home when she says she looked back and saw flames.
Thankfully, this toddler knew just what to do and ran to get her mother, Amri Payne. Mom says she saw fire “shooting up to the roof” but was able to get the baby out of the crib and everyone out of the house safely. Damage from the blaze was extensive, but the family is focusing on the positives.
“She’s a hero,” Payne says of Mesha. “I’m proud of her.”

Nurse Discovers New Doctor Is Preemie She Cared For 28 Years Ago
Vilma Wong has been working as a nurse in the NICU at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital in Palo Alto, California for 32 years. When new doctor Brandon Seminatore started working there, she felt like she knew him and a friendly conversation revealed she was right.
They were talking when Brandon said that he was born in that hospital and it all started clicking. “I got very suspicious because I remember being the primary nurse to a baby with the same last name,” Vilma explains. “I asked him if his dad was a police officer and there was a big silence and then he asked me if I was Vilma.”
It turns out, Vilma had been the primary nurse for Brandon 28 years earlier when he was born prematurely at 26 weeks. His mother asked him to look for nurse Vilma in the NICU, but he thought she’d probably retired and didn’t. Vilma even had a photo of the two taken while she was caring for him as a newborn.
“I’ve come full circle,” Brandon says, “and I’m taking care of babies with the nurse who took care of me.”
Tulsa Family Gifted New Home
A streak of bad luck a few years ago left Rebecca Jefferson’s Tulsa, Oklahoma home in bad shape. A tree fell on the house, it caught fire and they had work done by an unlicensed electrician, and eventually, the family was stuck living in just two rooms of the home that had big holes in it, using a gas generator to power it.
Their luck changed one day when a stranger rang their doorbell. Realtor Linda Fitzgerald told Jefferson about a program that would give them a new roof for free. That didn’t work out because the old home couldn’t support the roof, so Fitzgerald and other community members teamed up to find another solution.
The Jefferson’s home was demolished and another home in a different part of town has been moved to their lot. Many organizations came together to make this happen for the family and they are over the moon about having a new place to call home.
“I want to do my happy dance,” Jefferson says. “I’m so excited.”
