Getting the news that one is expecting a baby is amazing. The entire process of hopeful expectation and frantic planning becomes a cherished part of parents’ lives.
Sometimes, however, a dark cloud waits on the horizon, waiting to wash away all that happiness.
This is Amanda. Just a few months ago, she and her husband found out they were expecting their first child.
They had been trying for three years with no luck.
They had also just moved into their new house!
But soon into her pregnancy, Amanda’s husband up and left without a word. This left her with no financial or emotional support.
A caring friend decided to relay the story to a local radio station. The station decided to invite them on.
Amanda arrived at the KIIS 1065 radio station without a clue of why she was there.
The hosts told her about the station’s GivingBack venture and asked her to tell her story.
Amanda got incredibly choked up while relating her struggle.
The hosts, however, had already decided what they were going to do.
When she finished, they told her there was a surprise in store for her.
“We would love for you to be able to have this baby and not have to worry about the financial side of things,” a host said. “So I want you to take a look at the TV screen behind you, what do you see?”
They showed her a video capturing her house live.
The camera went in to reveal Amanda getting six months’ worth of cleaning service for free!
Then there was $4,000 worth of baby gifts to help her avoid having to buy them.
But the best and last surprise was in the oven!
No, not that towel.
The oven had $10,000 worth of cash!
Amanda was so overwhelmed that she could only smile and cry!
