Some things are just too crazy to believe and here is a great example! In June 2001, a young girl named, Laura Buxton who was 9-years-old, released a red balloon into the sky in Staffordshire, England. On the balloon wrote, “Please return to Laura Buxton” along with her address. The balloon landed and it landed in the most peculiar place. 140-miles away, a farmer found the balloon stuck on the fence that separated him from his neighbors. After reading the balloon, the man quickly ran and retrieved his 10-year-old daughter named Laura Buxton. They decided to write the little girl a letter to let her know that her balloon was found. Because the situation was too unbelievable the two young Laura Buxtons decided to meet. They were nearly identical! They have now formed a strong friendship and believe they are meant to be in each other’s lives! What are the odds? 


What is the most unbelievable coincidence that has ever happened to you?
