Reading a newspaper (or news site) makes you feel down more often then it cheers you up. But sometimes you come across a rare feel-good story. Lately I’ve seen a lot of heartwarming stories (the ones that make you tear up in a good way!) come by on Facebook and in the news and I really wanted to share some with you. I hope the following stories and videos make your day!
TOUGH POLICE DETECTIVE HELPS ABUSED BROTHERS
Jack Mook (45) is a tough police detective and bachelor from Pittsburgh. When he isn’t solving cases he teaches boxing to under privileged kids. He developed a special bond with two young brothers that came to his class. When they all of a sudden stopped showing up, he went and tracked them down. What happens after he finds them will melt the coldest of hearts. A must-see!
Aminah Hart (42) had given already given birth to two sons that died at 14 weeks and 14 months because of a rare genetic disease that passes on to 50 per cent of boys born to a mother who is a carrier, before she attempted IVF using a sperm donor. The disease does not manifest in girls. Aminah, born to a white mother and black father, than gave birth to a blond haired girl. “I thought ‘I can’t have a blonde baby, I’m a black woman. Black women don’t have blond babies.'” The appearance of her daughter sparked Aminah’s search for the tods father. What happened when she found him is a modern fairytale.

LITTLE KOREAN GIRL GETS HER MANDARIN ORANGE STOLEN
This video is more cute than touching: a mom pretends to ‘eat’ her little girl’s mandarin orange. The tots response to this is absolutely adorable. For me it was also cool that I could understand almost everything that was being said (I’m studying Korean).
MAN REUNITES AFTER FIVE YEARS WITH GORILLA HE RAISED
Damian Aspinall is an English business man and zoo owner who breads gorilla’s in England. The goal of the breeding project is to release gorillas into the wild in Africa. Kwibi was one of the gorillas that Damian cared for that was released. Damian went to visit Kwibi, who after his release had been violent during human interacting, five years after. Damian didn’t expect for Kwibi to recognize him, but what happened when gorilla and man finally came face to face was amazing.
