  1. I especially loved Jennifer Rocha’s story. Far too often, we take for granted the sacrifices our parents make for providing us with higher education.

  2. I was very happy when our legislature made the calls free for prisoners.

  4. Richard is a minor miracle – perhaps I like this best because, at 7 weeks early in 1942 I’ve always felt lucky to be here.

  5. JoAnna, Its a great week for Good News Tueasday! I love every story too much to choose a favorite. ❤ Enjoy your holiday weekend! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  6. Wow, a baby surviving a four month pregnancy is incredible! That’s amazing news. And I’m glad that at least in one place phone calls from prison are free because I know they can mean a lot to the people inside them.

    • It was interesting that the doctors predicted zero chance of survival, but this little guy surprised them! I’m glad you enjoyed Good News Tuesday! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
