Dads Receives Best Gifts Ever

Usually the Holidays consists of parents working hard and going above and beyond in order to find that perfect Christmas gift for their child. I wanted to share a couple of touching stories I came across that celebrate the opposite: children who went above and beyond to give thier dad the perfect gift.


1.  Nebraska native Earl McConnell  received the greatest gift any dad could ask for from his son Justin.

Last year Earl was told by his doctors that his kidneys were failing. Being faced with his own mortality and the low prospects of an organ doner had taken a severe toll on him and his family. Once Justin realized just how sick his dad was, he did not hesitate to donate his own kidney. Although they had to spend Christmas away from home, the surgery was a success and they are going to go back home closer than ever.

When Justin was called a hero, he simply stated that he only did what his dad would have done for him.

2. Below is a video that has gone viral with over 4 million views. Initially, it looks like a dad was given a nice hat for a Christmas present. When he looks inside that hat however, he finds two tickets to the Alabama BCS game. Apparenty the father is a diehard fan becasue once he sees these tickets, he laughs tears of joy.
