This American Sign Language cover of Adele's 'Hello' is the most stunning thing I've seen all week.

When Adele's latest single "Hello" dropped, people were having feelings.

Lots of feelings.

Adele explained that "Hello" is "not about an ex-relationship, a love relationship, it's about my relationship with everyone that I love. It's not that we have fallen out, we've all got our lives going on and I needed to write that song so they would all hear it, because I'm not in touch with them."

It turns out a lot of people can relate to that.

Adele's original video was beautiful — beautiful enough, in fact, that it's been viewed over 264 million times so far.

But there's another version of "Hello" that's memorable and beautiful, too — and it's making us have those feelings all over again. It's a sign language interpretation of it.

Molly Lou Bartholomew is a professional nationally certified ASL interpreter. She shared on her YouTube channel that her "number one passion in life" is "artistic/theatrical interpreting in ASL (American Sign Language)."

We're glad she shares her passion, because she's sooo good.

You probably want to watch the whole thing while listening to the lyrics, right? Enjoy the feelings all over again!

It's estimated that there are 500,000 to 2 million American Sign Language users in the U.S.

Just last week, a video of a woman named Rebecca King uploaded to Facebook went viral. King, who is deaf, was placing her order in ASL at a Starbucks, where the barista communicated with her using ASL on the video monitor at the drive-through. The video has been viewed over 10 million times, bringing a lot of exposure to the value of communication using ASL.

Bartholomew's stunning interpretation of "Hello" just exemplifies the beauty of the language.

Inside the walls of her kitchen at her childhood home in Guatemala, Evelyn Klohr, the founder of a Washington, D.C.-area bakery called Kakeshionista, was taught a lesson that remains central to her business operations today.

"Baking cakes gave me the confidence to believe in my own brand and now I put my heart into giving my customers something they'll enjoy eating," Klohr said.

While driven to launch her own baking business, pursuing a dream in the culinary arts was economically challenging for Klohr. In the United States, culinary schools can open doors to future careers, but the cost of entry can be upwards of $36,000 a year.

Through a friend, Klohr learned about La Cocina VA, a nonprofit dedicated to providing job training and entrepreneurship development services at a training facility in the Washington, D.C-area.

La Cocina VA's, which translates to "the kitchen" in Spanish, offers its Bilingual Culinary Training program to prepare low-and moderate-income individuals from diverse backgrounds to launch careers in the food industry.

That program gave Klohr the ability to fully immerse herself in the baking industry within a professional kitchen facility and receive training in an array of subjects including culinary skills, food safety, career development and English language classes.

4-year-old New Zealand boy and police share toys.

Sometimes the adorableness of small children is almost too much to take.

According to the New Zealand Police, a 4-year-old called the country's emergency number to report that he had some toys for them—and that's only the first cute thing to happen in this story.

After calling 111 (the New Zealand equivalent to 911), the preschooler told the "police lady" who answered the call that he had some toys for her. "Come over and see them!" he said to her.

The dispatcher asked where he was, and then the boy's father picked up. He explained that the kids' mother was sick and the boy had made the call while he was attending to the other child. After confirming that there was no emergency—all in a remarkably calm exchange—the call was ended. The whole exchange was so sweet and innocent.

But then it went to another level of wholesome. The dispatcher put out a call to the police units asking if anyone was available to go look at the 4-year-old's toys. And an officer responded in the affirmative as if this were a totally normal occurrence.
