The bullied 9-year-old boy who broke hearts around the world last week in a viral video has an older sister who is a committed Aboriginal activist. His sister, Guyala, took to Instagram to support her younger brother and criticize his tormentors. Guyala, a year-old model, has campaigned to put an end to Australia Day — the national day that commemorates the arrival of the First Fleet of British ships to Australia in Some opposition campaigners refer to it as Invasion Day; last month, she uploaded a video calling for the day to be canceled. Guyala and Quaden are part of a family of activists. Hundreds of thousands of dollars were raised as part of a GoFundMe page to send the family to Disneyland, and celebs such as Hugh Jackman and Jeffrey Dean Morgan sent messages of support.

Two Indiana parents lived through the plot of an actual horror movie and survived to tell one of the most out of control stories imaginable. They adopted a child they thought was a 6-year-old Ukrainian girl with dwarfism but turned out to be a psychotic adult with dwarfism who was posing as a child and who ultimately attempted to kill them on multiple occasions. It was an ordeal in which even the minor details are bananas and the major ones are jaw-dropping. When Kristine Barnett and her ex-husband, Michael Barnett completed their emergency adoption of Natalia Grace in Florida and brought her back to Indiana with them they were ready to begin their lives as a happy family together. The Barnetts were already fostering another child and because, as Kristine tells it, they were doing well in life they felt they should use their blessings to help others if they could.

She spoke like someone much older than her supposed age, preferred the company of teenagers, displayed troubling mental issues, and possessed the physical traits of a female much older than a kindergartner. Then, after a while, she began attempting to kill her adoptive parents.
