Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

Andre and Jasmine Anderson have a new home!  It was a pleasure to watch as the Andersons, a visually impaired couple, and their two sons walked through their new home.   

Last night, I had the pleasure of watching Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.  The show featured a couple from Maple Heights, Ohio who have lost their sight due to diabetes; one of their sons is hearing impaired.     

With the help of volunteers and donations, the couple received a home equipped with “smart” features which will help them to navigate through the newly built, four bedroom home. 

One of the most touching moments was when Jasmine placed her wedding ring under a special magnifier which will allow her to paint her nails and put on her makeup.  It was an emotional moment, because she had never been able to see her ring in the past.  Now, that was a “tissue” moment. 

Needless to say, the show was truly a tear jerker.  Despite their physical issues, The Andersons exude such a positive, loving energy with their beautiful smiles and excitement towards life. 

It was simply a heart warming show, and I wish I could watch it over and over.
