  2. i feel so bad for Michael but he is really inspiring from his own story. glad to see him still alive.

  3. I've been crying for a while.
    It can be such a perfect inspiring movie! I really can't wait for this to be as a movie! Let the parents understand that others are struggling to have kids, and when others have kids, they usually treat them the worst…
    these kind of movies are really inspiring!
    Why can't it be a movie?!

  4. Moms are the best proof of a living love on this Earth. My mom passed away almost two years ago and I had the chance to tell her how much I loved her and to thank her for all that she's ever done for me and my brothers. She was my safe harbour, my source of insiration and the person I could always resort to whenever in need. Now she lives through me through my DNA and all the good examples and principles she's taught me. Love you mom.

  5. I broke down when he told the story of the boy giving his dad 25$ for half an hour of catch. I lost my father when I was 9. I never got the chance to be with him when I was more mature.

  6. This really is nuts! Made $1005 today alone resulting from this website here MyIncomeSystem.club?590 Just how is this possible?
