A divorced couple of New Jersey, who wanted to send greeting cards to each other, couldn't find anything in the story so they decided to launch XCards.

Ken and Wanda Bass were married and together for 15 years until they divorced, but despite their arguments, they knew they had to keep their peace for the sake of their children.

Part of the peace was sending greeting cards to each other in honor of Mother's Day and Father's Day, but when Ken went to the store, he couldn't find any cards that were appropriate for divorced couples.

Ken and Wanda got together and have founded a brand of cards designed specifically for those who have gone through divorce.

With the divorce rate at over 50 percent, the two believe that they are filling a gap in the greeting card market. Included among its products are thank you cards with inscriptions that speak of gratitude for being a great parent.

There are also cards for sons and daughters-in-law who are looking to send something nice to the parents of their former partners.

Baiamonte’s mother, Filomena Follano, said that her son usually comes to her office on Friday, as she works across the street from the school.

The day of the incident, Baiamonte came to her office with a hand over his eye, and he was accompanied by another girl.

The boy told his mother that he might have something stuck in his eye.

Follano took her son to an eye doctor who ordered them to immediately go to the hospital, where Baiamonte had surgery to remove a piece of pencil from the inside of his right eye.

The parents of the boy blame the school for not doing enough to curb bullying. The school said that the boy who stabbed Baiamonte, was suspended.

Parents in China, are trying to raise money to help give their child a better chance in life after being born with a total of 31 fingers and toes.

The baby boy was born with 15 fingers and 16 toes and is in urgent need of surgery, but his parents do not have the funds to pay for it.

The surgery could cost more than $15,000.

The baby, who was nicknamed HongHong, suffers from an extreme case of polydactyly, which affects about two of every 1,000 children. Astonishingly, the boy has two palms on his hands but no thumbs.

The baby’s mother, who works at a factory in Shenzhen, also suffers from polydactyly, but not as serious. She has 12 fingers and 12 toes.

The baby’s father, Zou Chenglin, said that his wife has an extra finger and toe on each of her hands and feet, so they were worried that their son would inherit the condition.

They went to three major hospitals in Shenzhen for ultrasounds. However, doctors assured the parents that they did not find any birth defects in the boy.

“Therefore, we’re surprised when HongHong was born with seven fingers on his right hand, eight fingers on his left hand and eight fingers on each of his feet,” Chenglin said.

Davis said that when her tears started streaming down her face and she did not have tissue to wipe it, she knew that she was doomed.

“When I looked in the mirror, I began to cry more, and there was absolutely nothing I could do but let the tears roll down my face and completely ruin my spray tan,” she said.

She went back to the spa the next day to have the spray tan redone.

Davis posted the photo of her botched spray tan to Imgur where it went viral.
