Watching for themselves

Extreme Makeover Home Edition blessed a family with a new home right around the corner from our friends, where several of us gathered to watch the episode. Rebekah, Anna and Jesse were all on site for the demolition and they were interviewed, but, alas, they hit the cutting room floor.

Other than that, the episode was phenominal. Oscar winner, Marlee Maitland, who is deaf, was the guest host. They recreated a home for a Filippino family, who moved to the States for better health care. The father and his mother are completely blind. The man's daughters are going blind, and his son is deaf. The team created a new home with bright colors so the girls can see them. They put in software that allows the father and son to communicate, and the neighborhood raised $150,000 for future needs.
