Stepdad Receives The Best Gift Ever When His Stepson Decided To Legally Be Adopted By Him

We seldom see grown men cry. And when we do, it is usually because of something that really touched their hearts. And needless to say, because what happened touched their hearts so much that they shed tears, we also can’t help but shed tears of our own.

Joel Skaggs’ mother introduced Dave Glenn to her family when Joel was only 10 years old. And like almost all kids who are suddenly trapped in a broken family, Joel was skeptical about his step-dad.

Throughout his childhood and teenage years, Joel did nothing but challenge the authority of his step-dad. It’s like challenging Dave to step into boundaries, but Dave never did that, he remained there for the family and never stepping out of line.

Dave’s wife, S. Glenn explained how Joel tested Dave at every opportunity he got.

“Dave married Joel’s mom, who had five sons. That is a pretty admirable undertaking! Through his teen years, Joel gave his mom and stepdad quite a bit of trouble and tested Dave at every opportunity. Through it all, Dave remained there for his family—leading by his loving, strong, and wise example.”

As Joel grew older, he came to realize how special Dave’s presence is. He even asked Dave to be his best man when he got married. Also, Joel’s kids look up to Dave as their grandfather. Joel also came to realize that he was also looking up at Dave as a father.

So, on Dave’s 60th birthday, Joel decided to make it official. Sitting on a couch, Joel wrote how much he respects Dave as his father.

“By your teaching and example, you have taught me what a man is,” Joel read. “By loving my mom, you have taught me how to love my wife. By sacrificing and standing beside me, no matter what life threw at us, you’ve shown me how to be a father to my own kids…You are the man that I most respect, and you’re my hero. I love you, Dad.”

Joel plans to legally change his name to Joel Oliver Skaggs Glenn. “It’ll be official,” he said.

“You really want to be my son,” Dave says.

“I already am,” Joel replies.

Gorgeous Popcorn Vendor from Pampanga Goes Viral

Published

It is a reality in life that beautiful people get noticed more easily than what we might call as ‘ordinary’ ones; this is the reason why you might notice that those working in service-oriented fields such as hotel front desk, restaurant servers, and flight attendants are usually those who have good looks and nice bodies.

Some companies even prefer to hire people who do look good – and such actually work in their favor; although blatantly announcing that could mean a discrimination lawsuit. Ooops. But it worked for that store that hired a busty babe in skimpy outfit in Taiwan!

Recently, in Mabalacat, Pampanga, a beautiful young lady went viral for selling popcorn. A lot of people just couldn’t believe that someone so beautiful as her would ‘just’ be selling popcorn – but, hey! Who said popcorn vendors should be ugly, huh?

Anyway, netizen Keren Kazia Bondad Casa shared photos of the lovely popcorn girl and the post went viral. A lot of people praised this young lady for being humble and not being maarte (snobbish) despite her natural beauty.

But things were actually much, much more awesome than what Keren had first posted. The beautiful lady was identified as Louri Caye who laughed at the news that she had gone viral. It turned out she was not actually a real popcorn vendor and didn’t even own the stall but had wanted to help its vendor after seeing the young kid was not getting attention from passers-by.

Thinking it would help the kid earn money, Louri volunteered to help sell the popcorn – and her plan worked! As soon as she started selling, the stall suddenly became the most popular spot in the area. It helped a lot that the friendly Louri had a smile ready for all the customers. Needless to say, the popcorns sold like hotcakes that night.

We greatly admire this young lady, not just for her looks but for her kind heart… God bless you!

Friends ‘Ride’ Invisible Car to Order Food at Jollibee Drive Thru

Published

A number of fast food outlets have a drive thru for the convenience of those who just want to order a quick takeout meal. The premise of ordering via the drive thru is that you have a vehicle.

What happens if you don’t have a vehicle but the lines at the counter inside the store are too long and the drive thru window has fewer customers?

Well, a group of friends had this rather genius idea of ‘riding’ an invisible car so they can order food at the Jollibee drive thru because the queues inside the store were long.

Laughing at their own crazy antics, the group positioned themselves in a manner that people would normally take if they were riding a car. They were standing, of course, but the designated ‘driver’ made sure to drive them carefully towards the important stops at the drive through – and he didn’t forget to ‘release the hand brake’ before moving forward to the counter.

It was really so hilarious to see these guys ‘riding’ their invisible car that the crew at the counter couldn’t help but laugh. They’re so crazy, right? LOL. But the crew played along, accepting the guys’ orders, still laughing at their silliness.

After their order was taken, the group continued towards the claim area without breaking their position. The crew at this counter also laughed at the guys, even gamely giving the ‘driver’ a fist bump.

They continued towards the exit in the same position, Giving each other high fives, knowing they got their way and were able to order much faster than the customers inside the store. Clever trick, isn’t it?

But the guys did not just trick the Jollibee crew, they had also become famous on Facebook. Less than 24 hours after the video was posted, the video has garnered close to 1 million views!

Meet Vande Alagao and Janica Eleria from Davao City in southern Philippines. They were lovers since their elementary days. What’s amazing about their relationship is that not only were they able to manage staying together all these years but that they had graduated together from three different schools.

A bit confusing, eh? Well, here’s what really happened.

On When in Manila, Janica revealed that they met back in Grade 2 when she transferred to Vande’s school. She gushed at how Vande could still vividly remember to this day what she was wearing that day and what cellphone she was using!

They started exchanging text messages in Grade 5 and became a couple a year later.

In high school, however, Vande went to a different school. They only saw each other about once or twice a year at the time, until Janica’s mom decided to move her to Vande’s school in their third year of high school.

They graduated together from that school, a different one from their elementary school but they were together.

They recently graduated from senior high school. Thankfully, their respective families were supportive of their relationship, especially because they continue to focus more on their studies.

In college, the two are planning to take up different courses but just like their previous years, they will be studying in the same school. They will be celebrating their 7th year this October.
