All her life, Tiffany had trained herself to perform: back handsprings when she was a young gymnast, dance routines in musical theater, knee-hangs on aerial trapeze as an adult. And when it was time to get pregnant, she and Bets planned for more than a year. They signed a contract with the friend who agreed to donate sperm. They waited while a local cryobank screened and froze that sperm for a mandatory six-month quarantine. Tiffany began charting her basal temperatures. So why, month after month, was her body failing at the thing she wanted most?

The family of a 3-year-old Haddon Township boy whose body was found in the woods Tuesday suspects foul play was involved, but has few clues as to how or why Brendan Link Creato died, a family friend said Friday. "They know that the child couldn't have done this to himself. They believe someone did this to him," said Firas Emachah, 42, of Shamong, who said he had known the Creato family for 12 years and answered the phone Friday at the family's home improvement business. "But again who, when, where, how, that's completely up in the air, to the point where they can't even comprehend for a second what could have happened or why. " Authorities have remained silent about their investigation into Brendan's death, other than saying an autopsy on Tuesday could not determine the cause.

Former Philadelphia NAACP leader J. Whyatt "Jerry" Mondesire, a charismatic activist and a fixture in the city's political circles, died Sunday night at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, according to a family statement. "The family wants to thank everyone for their love and support," the statement read. The family did not cite a cause of death, but relayed that Mondesire was surrounded by relatives and close friends. A family friend, who did not wish to be identified, told The Inquirer on Saturday night that Mondesire, 65, was having dialysis at Chestnut Hill Hospital on Friday when he suffered a brain aneurysm.

When they were both students at the University of Delaware, Darlene Cohn was a close friend of the roommate of the man who is now her husband. Known for her playful spirit, Darlene would leave notes on Alan Cohn's desk, which both baffled and delighted him. They finally met, had a college romance, and married in 1987, a year after graduation Life seemed reasonably predictable. They lived in the Philadelphia suburbs, including Merion Station, but then things got a bit complicated.

The Fringe Festival is likely to be confusing for kids, with all the naughty sights and sounds and strange, late-night, avant-garde weirdness. After all, naughty stuff, staying up late, and being confused is purely for grown-ups, right? But the Fringe folks have something for the children (and adults who need a break from the deep thinking). Viscosity Theatre's Fish & Beauregard is an all-ages epic about a carnival-prize goldfish that outgrows his leaky tank. When his owner sets out to find a lake to set the finned pet free, the pair fall under the Cloud of Perpetual Rain, where a young woman finds them while on her quest to Discover the Unknown.

The Fringe Festival can be tough for families with young children. On the one hand, arts-loving parents are tempted by a Fringe guide bursting with internationally hailed performers; innovative, under-the-radar acts; and compelling homegrown options. On the other, Fringe lasts 16 days - and babysitting is expensive. So why not make it a family affair? Here are some of 2015's kid-friendliest shows. Fringe has two parts: FringeArts Curated and Neighborhood Fringe. The former events are invited, produced by FringeArts.

I HOPE BY praising Mayor Nutter and his team that selects the acts for the July Fourth celebration on the Ben Franklin Parkway will not come as a surprise. In past years, I've been criticizing the big signature event for a variety of reasons. Last year it was clear to any reasonable individual that this was not a family event, unless your family is the F-bomb family. Victor Fiorillo, in his column at PhillyMag.com, said Jennifer Hudson was a class act but the other acts could not stop themselves from dropping the F-bomb.

Duggars: To forgive divine The Puritans of yore had (often brutal!) public confessions. We've got therapy sessions disguised as news programs. Sex-scandal-scarred megastars Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting on TLC, heroes to many conservative Christians across the nation, availed themselves of that service this week, taping a multi-part chat on the friendly Fox News Channel. Part one aired Wednesday night; part two will be on Friday. The couple spoke of how shocked they were by revelations that one of their 19 children, son Josh Duggar , molested young girls when he was a teen.

He was diagnosed with glioblastoma in August 2013, said his father, Vincent. But he had continued going to his junior-year classes, at Cedar Creek High School in Egg Harbor City, part time until Christmas, his father said. Logan was a goalie and forward on the high school soccer team in his freshman year and, before that, for a team in a Mullica Township recreational league.
