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.

Christian Satire Site Strikes Back Against Snopes ‘Smear.’ Here’s How Snopes’ Responded.

Snopes just got put in their place. Good on you, Babylon Bee!

Published

on

Hilariously funny Christian satire site, the Babylon Bee, decided they had enough shenanigans from Snopes, the self-described “fact checking” site and the ongoing smear they launched against them, so they lawyered up, and boy, it didn’t take long for Snopes to change their tune. This just goes to show that we as conservatives and Christians shouldn’t be taking the attacks left-wing media launch at us lying down. The more we fight back, the more they surrender. via Daily Wire: “Last week, Snopes fact-checked us again,” the Bee told its readers Monday (h/t Ed Morrissey). “We’re pretty used to that. But this time, instead of merely rating the article ‘false,’ they questioned whether our work qualifies as satire, and even went so far as to suggest that we were deliberately deceiving our readers. Basically, they treated us as a source of intentionally misleading fake news, rather than as the legitimate, well-known satire publication that we are. This is a big deal.” The reason it’s a “big deal,” the site goes on to explain, is that Snopes has been given significant power over how platforms — particularly Facebook, for which Snopes has served as one of its “fake news” monitors — handle posts: As you know, fake news—which is distinguished from satire by its intent to mislead—was widely considered a serious issue in the last election cycle. As a result, social media networks like Facebook began partnering with fact-checkers to try and limit the distribution of fake news on their platforms. Snopes was one of them. At one point, a piece of ours was rated “false” by Snopes, prompting Facebook to threaten us with limitations and demonetization. We made a stink about this, and after some media attention shed light on the problem, Facebook apologized for their handling of the matter and…

Argentine Photographer Captures INCREDIBLE Image of Christ-Like Cloud

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.
