Good news 

Everyone probably already heard about this woman who was at a kids' birthday party and happened to note that one of the girls looked a lot like her and her other kids, and took some of her hair and had it DNA tested. Turns out it was her daughter who'd been thought dead in a fire six years ago.

Now, this is a bloody miracle, no question. What's really amazing to me is that we live in an age where a woman who speaks barely any English, living in Pennsylvania, thinks about getting a DNA sample from a little girl at a party. In this case, it's amazing and incredible and had awesome results, but in the long run...isn't it a bit creepy?
