How a Mother and Daughter Met for the First Time–After 69 Years

Published

on

At 88-years-old and living in an assisted living home in Florida, Genevieve Purinton thought she was alone in this world. Her eight other siblings had passed away, and she had no children—or so she thought.

In 1949, at just 18 years old, Purinton gave birth to a little girl. “When I said I wanted to see the baby, they told me she died,” Purinton told Fox13 News in an emotional interview.

But after 69 years and with a little help from an AncestryDNA kit, Purinton was reunited with her daughter, Connie Moultroup.

“It’s been a lifetime of wanting this,” Moultroup said through joyful tears. “I remember being 5 years old, wishing I could find my mother.”

“It’s okay, it’s okay,” Moultroup whispered to her mother as they held an embrace for several minutes as if to make up for 69 years of time together lost.

Moultroup, who came from Vermont to meet her mother, received the AncestryDNA kit as a Christmas gift last year. With it, she found a cousin she’d never known before.

She gave the cousin her mother’s name, which is all she knew of her, and, amazingly, her cousin dropped a bombshell on Moultroup: “She said, ‘oh, that’s my aunt! By the way, she’s still alive!'”

“It’s good to meet you,” Moultroup said as she finally stood back, just a bit, from her mother’s arms. “Same to you,” Purinton said with a grin as her daughter wiped a tear from her eye.

Purinton looked into Moultroup’s eyes, saying, “you’re really not dead!”

“I’m not dead,” Moultroup said, igniting laughter in everyone who watched this incredible moment before falling back into another long overdue hug.

Purinton will spend the rest of her life now knowing that she is not alone. Not only has she found her daughter, Purinton also gained grandchildren and great-grandchildren through this incredible discovery.

Argentine Photographer Captures INCREDIBLE Image of Christ-Like Cloud

Published

It cannot be denied that our world is in the midst of turmoil unlike anything we’ve seen in the past. From Birmingham to Beijing, we are seeing unprecedented poverty, crime, hate, violence, war, famine….you name it.  Combine these issues with a mainstream media who is salivating at the chance to rile us up for ratings and money, and the world becomes a downright scary place. Where do we turn when the world seems to shun us?  For some, the answers lie in the bottom of a bottle.  For others, it’s self-harm or outward violence. For many, however, their faith is their rock.  They turn to the religious world for answers to the questions that plague us today, and, often, they discover signs of encouragement. Such is the case today in Argentina. Monica Aramayo was in San Salvador de Jujuy in Argentina when she noticed the holy figure shining through the thick clouds Social media user Mariela Romano said: “The Lord will soon come for us all and we should be ready. While another said: “Thanks for the image that allows us to keep on our path and have a better hope for tomorrow.” The photo has to be seen to be believed. https://twitter.com/faithdefender/status/1128809009153097728 The pose and grand scale of the image has reminded many observers of the famous Christ The Redeemer statue in Brazil. https://twitter.com/OtravelAI/status/1082513665700507648 And while the cloud formation certainly isn’t going to change the minds of the unfaithful, it does provide us all with a reminder that we are loved, and we must remain harmonious with one another on this turbulent little space rock.

Former Pope Blames ‘Swingin’ Sixties’ for Catholic Church’s Cesspool of Pedophilia

The Catholic Church is again attempting to blame their rampant pedophilia on the outside world.

Published

on

Pope Benedict

The high pontiffs of the Catholic Church would make fantastic dodgeball players. Given just how well they’ve avoided taking the blame for, or properly reacting to, the disturbing prevalence of pedophilia among their ranks, there is little doubt that these purposefully-ignorant would be able to dodge just about anything. The problem is obtuse, obvious, and ostensibly disgusting.  There are literally thousands upon thousands of young children who have been sexualized by Catholic priests over the course of several decades in all corners of the globe.  The problem is not isolated at all, and the only common factor between these horrific crimes is that they occurred at the hands of the Catholic Church. If the entire world got sick from eating a certain food, we would stop eating that food.  In the case of the Catholic Church, the children of the world are being undeniably harmed by their religious leaders in habitual and systemic acts of pedophilia, yet the leaders at The Vatican continue to ignore and obfuscate the truth. Now, one former Pope is even blaming the cultural revolution of the 1960’s for the issue. Emeritus Pope Benedict has emerged from his cone of silence to offer a personal analysis of the clerical sex abuse crisis, citing the sexual revolution, a corruption of moral theology, and the formation of “homosexual cliques” in seminaries as causes of the problem. Benedict says that he felt compelled to contribute to a response to the present situation “since I myself had served in a position of responsibility as shepherd of the Church at the time of the public outbreak of the crisis,” and so penned his reflections, obtaining the present pope’s blessing to make them public. In his new, 6,000-word bombshell essay, the former pope turns his gaze toward societal forces outside the Church as well as…
