  • Amazing story of a family that would not give up on their son and how they work together to encourage one another.

    This is the Best Episode Ever!!! For a long time I have felt that Extreme Makeover: Home Edition is one of the absolute best things on TV. It is one of the few things you can watch and not have to worry about cussing or some other negative thing. Any way this episode brought me to tears. The amazing spirit of this family and their overcoming son Patrick is such an inspiration. I have never seen a person with so little attain so much! To think that Patrick was born without eyes and with so many other birth defects, it is mind boggling how he learned to play the piano so well. I hope that this episode will eventually be released on DVD.moreless
  • A remarkable inspiration to us all, thank you Hughes Family!!!

    I must start by saying that Patrick Henry is a very special creation of God that inspires and changes people's thinking of life. I have the show recorded on my DVR and has been a tremendous inspiration and blessing to me and everyone else that has had the pleasure to experience it. I see Patrick Henry with more blessings and abilities than many of those who can see and walk. I really hope P.H persues music because I would be the first to purchase his CD. Thank you P.H for allowing me to experience your world and change my life. You are truly a very talented musician and an amazing human being!moreless
  • Patrick is a very lucky kid.

    A kid born blind in a wheelchair doesn't have much room to move aroudn in his house. The EMHE team come help Patrick and the Hughes Family to redecorate their room, including a stadium dedicated to the family. I really liked the rooms. Such as the Guitar Room, the Piano Room and Patrick's Room and it was a beauitiful house. I hope the Hughes are really happy now and this is a really special thing. So I hope Patrick is happy, real lucky happy. This is my review for EMHE for the Hughes Family episode. Thanks for reading! - Halo, Peace out!moreless
  • Patrick Henry Hughes is a inspiration to many with extrodinary talent.

    It was one of the most touching shows I have seen in awhile Patrick Henry is an amazing person with a bright and cheerful personality. And a great outlook on things he made me believe if you want something bad enough you can achieve it with work and dedication! I think everyone that knows him or has the chance to meet him should consider themselves blessed. He has extrodinary talent in music and I must say I lost it when he was playing the piano and singing at both the Lion King Production and at the end of the show he was sent to everyone for a reason and is a great inspirationmoreless
