We Are the World Blogfest #WATWB

Today I’m participating in the We Are The World Blogfest, a blog celebration of good news all over the world. Here’s how it works: On the last Friday of each month a number of bloggers participate in a blog hop in which each blogger highlights a story that spreads good news, happiness, and hope.

So here’s the link to the story I want to share: good newsIt’s about a son-in-law to-be who makes a heartwarming sacrifice for his new “dad.”

These are the cohosts for this month: Simon FalkRoshan Radhakrishnan, Inderpreet Upal, Sylvia Stein, and Damyanti Biswas. Click the name of the cohost to visit his or her blog.

    Hi Amy – what a wonderful story … thank goodness a match was found – and that generous gesture from his son-in-law to be at that stage … love his comment he doesn’t need to think about father’s day presents for a few years!! Cheers Hilary
