Sad and silver-lined stories

I haven’t finished compiling what was supposed to be mi today’s post (procrastination, procrastination), so I’ll share some videos that have impacted me over the last week.

Second is another tragedy involving babies—abandonment of unwanted babies in South Korea. The silver lining is the orphanage that takes them in. Via a drop-box.

Finally, to all the single ladies: marry a man whom you wouldn’t mind dressing you one day. An extremely uplifting story from Australia of deep and joyful love in spite of circumstances:
