    'The Bachelor' Star Lauren Burnham's Reaction to Trying on Wedding Dresses Will Make You Say 'Same'

    Six months before her Hawaiian wedding to Arie Luyendyk Jr., Lauren Burnham can officially check “test waterproof mascara” off her to-do list. The 25-year-old recently chatted with E! News about her upcoming nuptials…while trying on wedding dresses. Although Burnham revealed that Luyendyk Jr. wants her to wear “whatever makes her feel beautiful,” that didn't stop her from getting emotional when she tried on her first gown. “Arie and I have always had a different connection than I've ever experienced before…It's just so surreal 'cause I am wearing a wedding dress,” she said through tears. Unfortunately, the wedding won't be televised, which means we won't get a glimpse of “the dress” until she

More than three dozen people have died in incidents involving duck boats on land and water in the United States over the past two decades. Eleven members of one family, nine of whom died, were among the passengers on the duck boat that sank on Thursday, according to Missouri Governor Mike Parson who called it a "heart-breaking tragedy".

    Mom Meets Adopted Baby After Traveling 7,000 Miles

    This is the moment a mom got to meet her adopted baby after traveling 7,000 miles to be by her side. After giving birth to Maraia, Christine Druava was diagnosed with Stage IV Endometriosis. So the new mom and husband, Joape, weren't able to conceive again. The family decided to adopt, and after multiple attempts, a family member in Fiji asked them to take in their baby. When Kendall was born, they went to Fiji to bring her home. But the adoption process is a complicated one. In a blog post on Love What Matters, Christine explains that Kendall is almost 9 months now and their adoption is moving forward. "We will most likely be in Fiji another 12-18 months," she says. "Our Daddy has given the

    Deported Guatemalan Man Desperately Awaits Return Of 9-Year-Old Son From U.S. Custody

    The Trump administration has one week left to meet a court-ordered deadline to reunite over 2,000 children separated at the border from their families suspected of entering the U.S. illegally. Logistically, it's going to be tough for the government. The children were sent to dozens of different shelters and foster homes around the United States, in many cases, thousands of miles from their detained parents. Then there are dozens more parents who've already been deported without their children, further complicating the reunification process. Rudy Migdael Ramirez, 36, is one of those parents. He opens the chain-link lock to his concrete house outside the town of Jutiapa in southern Guatemala to

    Judge praises U.S. efforts in reuniting migrant families

    A federal judge said on Friday the U.S. government had made "very promising" progress toward reuniting some 2,500 immigrant children separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border as part of a crackdown on illegal immigration.     The government has six days left to comply with the reunification order by U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw, who summoned government attorneys to appear in his San Diego courtroom to update him on efforts made in bringing families back together. Lawyers for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement reported in a court filing late Thursday that 364 children aged 5 and older had been reunited since Sabraw's order was issued more than three weeks ago. The number was updated to 450 today, an ACLU spokesperson said.
