I cannot watch any of these episodes w/o crying. I love the blessings they bring thru for all the sponsorship that is being given.Tonight has the "Jocobo" family on. 9 children, 2 parents,and 1 grandparent all working so hard to stay together. 4 of the children are nieces and nephews that their mother was abusive,and they nearly went to fostercare. Now they are getting help to live with their aunt/uncle.Wow what a great bunch of stuff they give to them (3 vehicles,9 scholarships,etc...) Thanks God/Jesus Christ for such things.

I almost always make it a point to watch every Sunday nite. What is most amazing is how the whole community gets behind the builders and the designers to volunteer. Two episodes have now been taped in Michigan and I couldn't have been prouder to see other Michiganders jump right in. These families truly need this show. I hope Extreme Makeover Home Edition can continue for many years to come. Plus Ty is such a hoot.

Yes i love watching Extreme Makeover Home Edition, every chance i get to see one that i have time to watch it. I was also proud to see this episode when they came here to Missouri where i now live. I love to see all the joy they bring into so many lives, and all the joy it brings them for the effort they put thru. Yeah Ty is kind of a hoot, but some of it is for the cameras,but at least it is all toward great building in lives that so desperately need it. EGJC, Latisha

I thought this episode was amazing, too. I also cried (along with all the other episodes, I admit). I couldn't believe how much was showered on them - and, don't forget, the contractor paid off their mortgage, too! So, they have a GREAT house, no worries about mortgage payments, three brand new vehicles and scholarships for all nine children. Amazing, amazing, amazing. This show really teaches a lesson, as far as I'm concerned. Would it be wonderful if average people, like the ones volunteering their services on the show, worked this way in their own communities because they knew people were in need. Imagine that . . .

Yes i definately remember that the contractor paid off their mortgage...great stuff huh? Yes lots of lessons in Extreme Makeover Home Edition shows, if more people were pulling together like how this show comes together with all the work, products and sponsorship-we would see alot less war in this world possibly.

I really enjoy this show. Such a blessing to some of these families that have been dealt a blow in life and have no where else to turn. I to can't make it through an episode without crying.
