Wow! What a story! On 60 Minutes tonight was the story that is just mind boggling. A young five year old Indian boy is separated from his family for twenty five years. He used Google maps to find his home. He had no language to tell people the town's name or even his family's name. He was put in an orphanage and placed with a family who lived in Australia. His older brother was killed on the train tracks that same night. His mother had stayed in the same village feeling that her son would some day come back home. Read this fabulous story:

Oh, yeah! They told it on 60 Minutes and I was just heart struck. He and his mom were so lucky to get back to one another. What a story of family.
