Joseph G

Joseph is always there when I need someone to talk to. He was one of the friends I made at my new school. If I ever have any doubts about something, he gives me the confidence. He believes in me no matter what I am trying to do. No one has ever really believed in me or told me I can do things. People have just said stop dreaming and get back to reality. But Joseph always believes in me.

Very touching story. I think she would not have succeeded in her life as a mother and as a teacher if she did not have a faher who believed in her.

Rhianna M. from PA JANUARY 8, 2010
That is very touching. I may only be 11 but its good.

Philipp S. from Groningen, Netherlands JULY 9, 2009
This story has touched me because there are similarities with my own family story. In my family I was the black sheep and I never showed up at family events. I think people who are black sheep's merely don't show up because they are irresponsible or don't like their folks. They just have a feeling of not fitting in and the best you can do is accepting they're different because you also want to be accepted for who you are. Last week I met a girl who also is the black sheep in her family. And these shared feelings have the effect that we understand each other well. Now it makes sense that I was the black sheep. All the pain. It helped me meeting this girl and being able to understand her. Somehow everything is in equilibrium.

I like this story very much because is about faith and faith is important.

Sandra A. from United States NOVEMBER 14, 2008
Wow. When you think that your parents don't care about you because they yell at you that's when they care about you the most.

Ruth J.A. from Nigeria FEBRUARY 26, 2008
Love is the bond of undying force from parents to their children mixed with faith for the glorious future that they expect. Love, patience, and faith work wonders.

When two hearts beat as one when two minds think as one they can overcome any obstacle and always stay together for there's no greater feeling in this world then loving somebody when they love you back.

Lauren T. from New York, USA SEPTEMBER 19, 2007

We raised seven children and truly believe in believing and standing up for the the ones you love. Love never fails.

Shankar D. from Cuttack, Orissa, India SEPTEMBER 5, 2007
Faith really pays! As somebody said, "faith can move mountains" is really true. Doors that never seem to exist open. This story is a live example.

Jecyl G. from Philippines AUGUST 26, 2007
The love of the parents to their child can never be changed by any other love.

Kirthishri M. from Bangalore, India AUGUST 22, 2007
Love of parents is something which cannot be measured. It's the faith, love and blessings of parents that makes us reach great heights in life.

A great and humble scene. Reminds me of the story of The Prodigal Son. Children are just so precious to their parents no matter what.

Paula from Lebanon JUNE 28, 2007

A beautiful story.

Leon G. from Malaysia MARCH 31, 2007
The love of parents for their children knows no bounds. And when it is enhanced by faith it seems to have a power of its own to fulfill the loving vision parents have for their loved ones.
