This Already Touched Me, But When The Tall Guy With The Deep Voice Spoke, I Had To Fight Back Tears

All parents wonder what their kids are thinking, but especially for adoptive parents — speaking from personal experience here — there's that one extra thing: You hope your child is OK with being yours.

Adoption organization KidSave decided to get some answers to this question. (We shared a video explaining who KidSave is and what they do a while back.)

They invited some adoptive and biological families to a studio and asked the kids a big question.

What do you love about your parents?

At first the kids look a little confused. Then, quietly at first, come some achingly real answers. Some are touchingly childlike and simple.

Family after family.

And some of them are just ... wow.

The interviewer then asks the kids what life would be like without their parents. Whew.

It turns out the kids — especially the older ones — get it. They know just what their parents do for them.

And this little one. Aw.

When this tall guy speaks, his deep voice charged with emotion, he gets tears in his eyes, and so do I.

What a beautiful day.

The thing that makes a family isn't what it looks like.

It's love.

Here's the video they made. So sweet.

Makes you think about your parents, huh?

A young boy tried to grab the Pope's skull cap

A boy of about 10-years-old with a mental disability stole the show at Pope Francis' weekly general audience on Wednesday at the Vatican auditorium. In front of an audience of thousands the boy walked past security and onto the stage while priests delivered prayers and introductory speeches.

The boy, later identified as Paolo, Jr., greeted the pope by shaking his hand and when it was clear that he had no intention of leaving, the pontiff asked Monsignor Leonardo Sapienza, the head of protocol, to let the boy borrow his chair.

The boy's activity on the stage was clearly a breach of Vatican protocol but Pope Francis didn't seem to be bothered one bit. He looked at the child with a sense of joy and wasn't even disturbed when he repeatedly motioned that he wanted to remove his skull cap.
