Extreme Makeover Home Edition

I normally don’t watch the Extreme Home Makeover show, however, friends and family contacted us last night to watch this special Tallahassee, FL episode of a large family who desperately needed a new home. I regret that I missed the beginning of the show and the introduction of both parents and their large family of 1 biological son along with about 6 adopted children. The adopted children were all from China and have special needs. This family is so special because of the love that is shared among all of them and the attention given to the children who have special needs. The family live in Tallahassee, FL and this made the episode even more touching for us since we live in the same city. It was so moving to get to know this family over the short course of this show.

My understanding is that they were living in a 3 bedroom / 1 bathroom home when they were chosen to be the recipients of a new home by the show. In the end, a very beautiful home was designed for a very deserving family and they were even serenaded in their new home by the Stevie Wonder! Unfortunately, the father was not able to see their new home since he was battling with cancer and went into the hospital before the home was built. I wish the Kadzis family the best and although they have a long and tough road ahead of them emotionally, it seems that with all of the love in that house to go around that they will eventually overcome their loss.
