As more twisted details of the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 crash unfold, the part that rocks me to my very core are the most human moments of the lost 298 passengers, of whom 80 were children.
The story of one of them hits very close to home for me as a mom: A mother in Amsterdam, Samira Calehr, has to live knowing that her little boy perished on that flight ... and that in his last hours, he knew that something was going to happen to him. It's enough to send chills down anyone's spine ...

Don't ever tell your ex the location of your wedding. A Kuwaiti woman's dreams of marriage and family were shattered when her ex boyfriend showed up at her wedding with a memory stick stuck in a bouquet of flowers.
A note attached to the bouquet told the groom that he had better check out what's on the stick. I'm sure you can figure out what happens next. The new groom plugged the device into a computer and found a picture of the woman he had just wed in a compromising position. And they hadn't yet done the deed themselves.

A Florida mom is facing charges after she refused to take her ill 13-day-old newborn to the hospital because of her vegan beliefs.
Investigators say Sarah Markham's pediatrician told her that her infant was severely dehydrated and needed to be taken to the hospital as soon as possible. Instead of rushing to the hospital that very minute as most parents would have, Markham said she wanted to get a second opinion about her baby's condition with a holistic doctor.
