She Kept 11 Items to Memorialize Her Babies. And There’s a Reason Each One Is Strikingly Haunting…

Dianne Yudelson and her husband were married a year and a half before receiving the glorious news she was pregnant.

She tells Independent Journal Review the pair was ecstatic, as many first-time parents are when they find out they’re expecting:

“My husband and I were overjoyed, after hearing heartbeats and seeing our baby moving on the ultrasound at week 12, our dream of a family was coming to fruition. Gifts were received and baby names were discussed.”

Dianne had called her mother to share the good news that she was going to soon be a mom. Her mother told her she was already a mother, saying:

“From the moment you discover you are pregnant every future decision made is for your baby’s wellbeing — that is the definition of being a mother.”

But something tragic happened at their 4-month checkup:

“No heartbeat was detected and in the weeks following our lives stood still — we were stunned. Then the grief sets in. The loss of a baby naturally carries grief. This grief is accompanied by the added residual physical pain of the miscarriage and hormonal transitions associated with pregnancy which add to the emotional toll.

Miscarriage is heartbreaking; miscarriage is exhausting; miscarriage is isolating.”

In the years that followed, the Yudelsons lost ten more babies due to miscarriages, something that has forever changed her life.

The San Fransisco Bay Area artist kept a box full of mementos from each child’s short life. For each of her eleven babies lost, she kept gifts, journal pages, cards, test results, hospital bands, purchases, and heirlooms she saved for the day she’d become a mom.

In her most recent collection, “Lost,” she finally shared these keepsakes, along with her story, with the world.

Here are her visual portrayals of the precious eleven babies Dianne will never forget:

Dianne explains she was inspired to share her story after helping a friend through a tough time.

In a way, she says the entire experience has been therapeutic:

“They say in giving you receive, I have found this to be true, especially when you give from the heart. In helping to heal others’ emotional pain from pregnancy loss, I have lessened my own.”

The award-winning photographer isn’t looking for fame for her masterpiece; rather, she wants women who’ve had miscarriages to know “they’re not alone”:

“To women who have recently miscarried I would like to express the following; grieving is normal and everyone experiences it in their own way and on their own timeline. When you feel like crying — cry. If you feel like surrounding yourself with others and partying — party. Conversely, if you feel you need privacy — let everyone know. Try not to bury your feelings, instead experience them.”

Dianne also hopes this creates a broader conversation about miscarriages in general, which she says is often silenced in our culture and considered a “taboo” subject.

Woman Marries the Man of Her Dreams. Her World is Shattered When He Borrows Her Grandma’s Computer.

Jazmin Cullen met her husband, Jason, at a bar in 2010 and knew immediately he was the one. Just months later, they were married.

However, the happiness her wedding day brought her ended not long after when she made a startling discovery about her new husband while they were on their honeymoon.

He was a pedophile.

According to the Irish Mirror, Jazmin had no idea “Mr. Right” had a past before he borrowed her grandmother’s computer while vacationing at her home. Jazmin’s grandmother became visibly upset after she found “disgusting images” on her computer and told Jazmin she believed Jason downloaded them.

When the blushing bride’s grandmother showed her the twenty “child abuse” photos that were downloaded to the computer, she informed the police.

That’s when Jazmin discovered Jason had been lying about his identity.

Jason, whose real last name is Hodson, had just finished serving two years in prison for owning over 8,000 child abuse images before he met Jazmin.

“I was completely dumbfounded,” she said.

Jazmin asked Jason for a divorce in 2013, but because he refuses to cooperate, she is still technically married to him.

She tells the Irish Mirror:

“He seemed like such a normal and charming man, and still to this day, I find it very hard to believe it is the same person.”

Jason pled guilty for possessing the images.

He was fined and sentenced to community service.

“Seeing him convicted was a mix of relief, complete devastation and disbelief. In many ways, I have been able to put it in my past but being married to him is a constant reminder. Every time I receive a letter, or see my name, it is distressing.”

Jazmin feels a divorce will finally give her peace, she just doesn’t know when that will be.

Independent Journal Review has attempted to contact Jazmin for comment.

A Man’s Brazen Attempt to Abduct a Young Girl Has Police Warning Parents to Watch Out for This Tactic

 

One of those safety lessons everyone remembers being taught as a child is also one of the most simple: “Don’t talk to strangers.”

In today’s digital age, it might be one of those that seems almost laughably antiquated, but — as WABC reports — a case out of New York is proving that these lessons are taught for a reason.

While walking home from school on Monday, a 12-year-old-girl was approached by a man in a white van, who attempted to use a deplorable trick to lure her inside. The Ossining Police Department is using the case to warn parents that dangers are always lurking:

The warning from the OPD, which was posted on Facebook, reads, in part:

“Last night we spoke with a young lady who said that…a man in a white van stopped to speak to her. She says the man’s story was that her mother was involved in an accident and that he needed to give her a ride. She confidently waved off the creepy guy in the van and went home…”

There are few things that get our attention like weirdos in vans attempting to lure children…Please use this as an opportunity to talk to your kids about situations like this.”

Jeffrey Giorgio of the Ossining Police adds that it was the man’s dubious lure — about the girl’s mom being in an accident — that actually tipped the vigilant 12-year-old off. The young girl’s mother doesn’t drive.

Reactions have ranged from praise for the middle schooler:

To outright disgust at the perpetrator:

The case is certainly a disturbing reminder that — in a time when so much focus is placed on kids sharing inappropriate selfies or unknowingly meeting predators online — that the real world still poses very real dangers for children as well.

Her Jealous Boyfriend Wanted Her to Stay Fat. After Cutting Him Out of the Picture, She Looks Unrecognizable

Sixteen months ago, almost everything about 28-year-old Christine Carter’s life was unhealthy – everything from the food she was eating, to her relationship with her boyfriend, to the way she felt about herself.

Carter found herself going to weekly doctor appointments due to health issues caused by her size. At her worst, the 5’5 Dallas native weighed 275 lbs:

During an interview with the Daily Mail, Carter said her initial weight gain took off after she quit smoking:

“I…transferred my addition from nicotine to eating.”

But that was just the beginning – it was her unhealthy relationship that really affected Carter.

The abusive relationship left her feeling unworthy of anything better:

“My ex was very controlling, told me what to wear, and I believe he wanted me to be fat so that I wouldn’t leave him. He also didn’t like me having me own friends.”

“Being overweight, I didn’t feel I deserved anything better – I went from a place of being ‘fat and happy’ to just ‘fat.’”

Screen Shot 2016-04-07 at 10.23.30 AM

To cope with her unhappiness, Carter resorted to food for comfort:

“It was taking a major toll on my body and instead of dealing with my feelings I was eating them.”

She added:

“I would wake up and eat all day long – sometimes I would eat in the middle of the night.”

She got to the point where just walking up the stairs put her out of breath.

After suffering for so long, Carter finally had enough and tried to take steps to improve her health.

She tired numerous diets, but after all of them failed, she eventually resorted to having Vertical Gastric Sleeve surgery.

Surgeons removed 70% of her stomach in 2014. But after she began putting back on some of the weight, Carter realized she had to do something about the way she was living her life:

“The weight loss surgery is only a tool. I had a wake-up call when I realised I was going to be a weight-loss surgery failure.”

“Not even this extreme measure could save me. There was a moment in time where I realised I have to change.”

Carter hired a coach and mentor to help her overall well-being, both mentally and physically.

That’s when a flame was sparked in Carter, inspiring her to change her life in every aspect.

Carter dropped the pounds and transformed herself into a completely different person, both on the inside and out:

OOTD!

A photo posted by Christine Carter (@weightlosshero) on Apr 6, 2016 at 10:40am PDT

Her newfound lifestyle helped her gain the confidence to get out of her unhealthy relationship:

“I am not the same girl I once was. It ended my relationship – my ex became very insecure and jealous and I gained the confidence to see that I was not in a healthy relationship and needed to get out.

“It also helped me progress in my career. Opportunities present themselves to me daily that I would not have if I was overweight.”

New dress, new shoes-thank you Amazon! What y'all think? #ootd

A photo posted by Christine Carter (@weightlosshero) on Apr 7, 2016 at 8:14am PDT

Adding:

“You see, I don’t think it was the weight loss that changed me, but the weight gain.

“As the pounds came off, I slowly but surely uncovered the confident, dedicated, hardworking woman that was there all along but that was too shy and afraid to be exposed.

“When I see old photos of myself, I literally don’t recognise them.”

I get nervous to post a before and after picture in a two piece. I'm afraid. Because I don't like the girl I used to be-and I don't know her anymore. Why bring her up? Why expose her to the world? Can I just shut her away forever? I can't. Because too many others are currently that girl on the left. Battling to become more. Trying to find themselves. Trying to create a new life. I made it this far because the fire inside of me burned brighter than the fire around me. And the flame inside keeps growing. I know that one word or one picture can inspire someone to change their life for the better. Turn suffering to success. Turn your doubts into actions. Turn your dreams into plans. What goals are you trying to accomplish? What is keeping you from them?

A photo posted by Christine Carter (@weightlosshero) on Mar 28, 2016 at 12:02pm PDT

Carter began to document her journey through her Instagram, hoping to inspire others who are in similar positions:

“I’ll be honest: working out isn’t my favourite thing in the world to do but I am faithful and consistent.

“I have so many things I want to share with people who want to lose weight but people should pick one bad habit-and fix the one thing.

“By committing even this one tiny thing, it begins to build confidence and trust in yourself that you can and you will do what you say you are going to do.

“Learn to love the struggle, and the results will come.”

Since her journal began nearly a year an a half ago, Carter has not only lost 150lbs but has found a newfound respect for herself.

Utah Teacher Busted Having Sex with Underage Student Has Mindblowing Remark on His ‘Performance’…

Writing from her prison cell, former Utah teacher Brianne Altrice has given a lengthy list of excuses defending the sexual relationships she had with three of her male students in 2013.

The 37-year-old is currently serving a 2- to 30-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to three counts of forcible sexual abuse last April.

In her written response to a lawsuit filed against her by one of the victims, Altrice noted that she “couldn’t afford proper counsel” at the time, but would do her best to defend herself.

The letter, which was obtained by the Salt Lake City Tribune, pushes the blame on both the parents and the school, saying she was essentially never reprimanded for her dress or conduct.

Altrice also argues that the parents “never attended parent teacher conferences,” despite one of the students going to her for advice on how to improve his relationship with his mom and dad.

Probably the most damning excuse given by the former teacher is this:

“Ms. Altice expressed and advised [the boy] to communicate with his parents and continue to do his best in school,” Altice wrote, adding that the boy’s grades improved during the 2012-2013 school year when she was his teacher.

She also added the victims would regularly “thwart inappropriate comments” directed at her, saying they called her “hot” and “sexy” many times.

As the Daily Mail reports, a second victim, who claims she took advantage of his troubled past filled with sexual abuse, has sued Altrice and the Davis School District.

The school remains firm they never knew about her relationship with their students.

Twitter Erupts when Kesha’s ‘Hate Crime’ Suit vs. Sony is Dismissed. Just One Thing About That…

In late February, pop singer Kesha Sebert got an answer from the Manhattan Supreme Court about whether or not she would be released from her contract with Sony over her allegations that producer Dr. Luke sexually assaulted her.

The court ruled against her.

In the wake of that ruling, Lukasz Gottwald (aka Dr. Luke), the man whom she alleged gave her a date rape drug then attacked her when she was 18 and still a virgin, made a startling revelation on social media:

He also pointed to an article which appears to show that Kesha’s attorneys fingered him for assaulting a very well known rape survivor:

Kesha countersued after the February ruling, claiming that she was discriminated against and the victim of hate crimes.

Now, a judge on the New York Supreme Court has made a final decision on the main points in the case:

Fortune reports that:

[Justice] Kornreich ruled that the claims in question cannot go forward due to the fact that the alleged rape and abuse occurred outside of New York and, because it allegedly took place in 2008, that the statute-of-limitations no longer applies. With regard to the hate crime claim, the judge stated that “every rape is not a gender-motivated hate crime,” according to THR.

Once the news got out about Kesha’s loss, Twitter erupted with outrage over the judge’s ruling:

A famous name even chimed in:

There’s just one problem: The New York Supreme Court Justice who made the ruling isn’t a him. Her name is Shirley Kornreich, Yahoo! News reported. Justice Kornreich has sat on the bench of the Commercial Division since 2009.

Teen Tweets 2-Word Remark to Trump & Gets Mercilessly Harassed By Folks Who Don’t Like It

Gabe Fleisher is your average teenager who enjoys playing soccer and hanging out with friends.

Another well-known fact about the 14-year-old is his fiery passion for politics. In fact, his political fervor was on full display recently when he responded to billionaire businessman, Donald Trump, after he posted this tweet regarding the Michelle Fields incident:

A two-word response from a teenaged boy living in Missouri sent Twitter into a frenzy.

Here are just a few responses Gabe says he received from Trump supporters who did not find his sarcastic comment very funny:

Gabe tells Independent Journal Review he was “surprised” at the responses:

“I clicked “tweet” on those two words, like I’ve launched tons of others before, and almost immediately began receiving very hateful messages back, which was fairly new to me. But once I got over the initial shock of having hundreds of strangers sending really harsh words, it was very saddening to see what our political discourse has become.

I sent out just two words, answering the question Trump had asked, and the first resort of so many was to turn to name-calling and profanity, and I think that’s a troubling sign of what our democracy has devolved into.”

His response reads like that of someone twice his age, which is likely why more than 1,000 people receive his political newsletter, “Wake Up To Politics,” every day.

Gabe says he’s always loved to write and began emailing his mom political updates in April, 2011. It slowly developed into a daily newsletter that was forwarded to family and friends.

Since he was just 10 years old, Gabe has been waking up at 6 a.m. every day to compile his newsletter, which was inspired after the 2008 presidential election, when he was just six years old:

“I think in an election cycle, politics is kind of inescapable for everyone in America. No matter your age, it’s impossible to avoid the ads, and the yard signs, and the bumper stickers. Some people hate it, but it really fascinated me when I saw them popping up in 2008, and I would ask my parents about the candidates and the elections, and I started reading about history.

In January 2009, my dad took my sister and I to the presidential inauguration, and that’s when I was really moved into a full-on passion for politics and history.”

Here’s a typical day in the life of Gabe Fleisher, who still makes room for school, soccer, and friends:

“I wake up at 6 a.m. and begin reading different news sites to decide what I want to write about for the day, and then I write it and send it out at 7:30, to get ready to leave for school about twenty minutes later. I go to school, I come home or go to soccer or other activities, do my homework, and then start crafting a list of what I’d like to put in the next day’s newsletter.”

Not many journalists can say they began reporting before they could legally drive a car. Gabe believes his age is actually an asset to his reporting:

“I do think I have a unique insight on politics and a maybe even a different writing style. Although I do have quite a bit of experience as a journalist by now and write as comprehensively as I can, I can still frame politics in a more understandable context, which I think many of my readers appreciate, as I try to inform and re-engage young and old into politics.”

When asked if he’d like to be a reporter after finishing up college, which is still four years away, he says he still “has a lot to decide” but thinks reporting in D.C. would be right up his alley.

When you sign up for Gabe’s newsletter, the last question he asks his future readers is who their favorite president is.

Independent Journal Review turned the tables on the Missouri teen:

“Abraham Lincoln, because of his leadership abilities and ability to hold people together, but also his wit and humor even in difficult times.”

The 14-year-old wouldn’t say if he was for or against Trump, or any candidate for that matter, saying he always “stays non-partisan and neutral” in his reporting.

Spoken like a true pro.

Former Governor Says the ‘Dinner Table’ is Set for Candidates Like Him if It’s Hillary vs Trump

Could 2016 be the year for New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson?

The 2012 Libertarian Party candidate for president hopes that the frustration many Americans have with the leading Republican and Democratic candidates will provide his party with an opportunity to gain ground this time around, according to The New York Times.

He told the paper in an interview:

“Given the fact that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, I think, are two of the most polarizing figures in American politics today, where is the third choice?

I don’t know how you set the dinner table any more favorably for a Libertarian candidate.”

Johnson’s star has never been higher, either. While he earned more than a million votes nationwide four years ago, a Monmouth University poll conducted last month found that 11% of voters would support him if Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were the Democratic and Republican nominees, respectively.

His support is even stronger among Independents (16%) and voters in traditionally Republican states (15%), suggesting that he would be pulling more from Trump’s base than Clinton’s.

Johnson’s quest is aided by the fact that the Libertarian Party is one of the few third parties that is on the ballot in all 50 states.

As a result, some political strategists have suggested that Republicans might make a last-ditch effort to stop Trump by running a candidate on the Libertarian ticket — a theory which Johnson quickly dismissed, telling the Times:

“I think [the candidate would] get their heads handed to them.”

It should be noted that Johnson has yet to officially win his party’s nomination, but is widely considered to be the frontrunner in advance of the party’s Memorial Day weekend convention, per the Times.

So who is Gary Johnson?

The presumed Libertarian Party standard-bearer was the Republican Governor of New Mexico from 1995 to 2003, where he became known as “Governor No” for vetoing nearly 750 bills while in office. He later went on to serve as the chief executive of a company that develops new marijuana products.

He also proudly bills himself as a classic libertarian — progressive on social issues but conservative on fiscal ones. Johnson hopes that his philosophy will resonate strongly with independents and moderates who feel alienated by both parties.

Nonetheless, any third-party candidate running for president faces an uphill battle. Johnson will not benefit from the media coverage or access to big donors that Republicans and Democrats have, nor will he likely be allowed to participate in the general election debates.

It’s a restriction that has scared away even the biggest of self-funders. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg decided against a third-party bid of his own after internal polling confirmed he wouldn’t be able to beat Clinton or Trump. Even current GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump shied away from his own third-party bid in 2000.

Instead, Johnson will likely end up playing more of a spoiler role, at best — much like billionaire Ross Perot did to then-President George H.W. Bush back in 1992. Perot managed to win 19% of the vote that year, pulling away crucial votes from Bush that would have allowed him to win re-election over then-Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton.

The Story Behind This Billboard Explains Why These Parents Are So Eager to Talk to Their Kids

Two California parents have taken extraordinary efforts to rekindle relations with their children, and the journey is not close to being over.

Phil and Willie Jones lost contact with their kids two years ago when they left the Church of Scientology. Their adult children stayed and now won’t have anything to do with them.

KABC TV reports that the Jones family has become what is known in Scientology parlance as “disconnected”:

“They’ve been disconnected, which is what Scientologists call their choice to cut off communication with people outside the church. Mike and Emily Jones are Scientologists. Emily Jones works for the upper management of the church, her parents said.”

The couple says they’ve called and gone to the church to see their kids.

Willie says they were relentless:

“Calling every week, showing up at the doorstep of the church, and we’ve been flat out told that we’re not welcomed.”

The couple said that they saved up and fundraised and got enough money together to buy a billboard near their kids’ Scientology offices in hopes that they’d see it and call them.

But those efforts were shot down by not one, but two, outdoor billboard companies. Page Six reports that the two companies were pressured by the church not to take the business.

Phil Jones told Page Six that they had a deal to put up the billboard a block away from church leader David Miscavige’s office, but somehow the church caught wind of their plans:

“Everything was in place and then bam! We were shut down,” Phil said. He added, “[A Regency sales rep] called to let me know that it had come down from the owner, but she wasn’t told why.

She originally had three calls from Scientology’s media company, who wanted to buy all of their inventory. They are a huge media buyer and apparently wanted to block it through the end of July.”

Finally, a third billboard company came through and the message went up this week.

Phil Jones said he told the company what happened and was relieved when they agreed:

“I told them what had happened, that we got shut down twice and I told them it was about Scientology. One of the first things they said is, ‘We believe in the First Amendment and freedom of speech.’”

Jones says the billboard is within close proximity to the main offices of Scientology. He told KABC that as many as one million people will see it in the month-long run.

The church came out swinging with a statement attacking the couple.

Curvy Model Posts Mic-Dropping Response to Man Who Called Her ‘Fat Cow’

The Internet can be a dark place, with cruel comments abounding on message boards, particularly to women who people think to be “overweight.”

Nobody knows this better than British model Iskra Lawrence.

The 25-year-old model, who is extremely popular on social media, recently received an outrageous comment that attempted to “fat shame” her:

“Fat cow. It’s only cus every f****r on this planet is obese that that’s the norm.”

“Plus-size models? give me a f*****g breaking.

Everyone needs to stop eating McDonald’s.”

[The health care system] is “f****d because of people like her eating too many bags of crisps.”

How did the successful model respond?

She posted a hilarious Instagram video, in which she ate chips in slow motion:

✨????Had to make a #slow-mo too????…This is for anyone who has ever been called FAT. Thanks for the inspirational words on a recent pic @zseanzbrown ???????? "Fat cow. It's only cus every F****r on this planet is obese that that's the norm… Plus-size models? give me a F*****g breaking. Everyone needs to stop eating McDonald's, the NHS is f****d because of people like her eating too many bags of crisps." Ps I do not condone binge eating. I eat whatever I want in moderation. I will eat crisps but I'll also make healthy home cooked meals and workout regularly. The message is who gives a F what anyone else thinks of you. YOU are the only one who decides yourself worth✨ And sorry I'm usually not rude or give anyone the finger but these online trolls smdh ???????????? #iskralawrence #everyBODYisbeautiful

A video posted by ????iskra✨ (@iamiskra) on Apr 1, 2016 at 10:45am PDT

The video also included a heartwarming caption:

“This is for anyone who has ever been called FAT.”

“Who gives a ‘F’ what anyone else thinks of you.

YOU are the only one who decides yourself worth.”

She also wrote the same caption alongside an image in which she laid in a bed covered in bags of snacks.

Both images have gone viral, being liked and shared thousands upon thousands of times.

This isn’t the first time that Lawrence has posted a slow motion video of her eating a decadent snack.

She posted a similar video that featured the model consuming a brownie.
