  • Heart warming but unrealized cost for the family in the end.

    While the show was heart warming and gave me that warm and fuzzy feeling inside, I was left to wonder how this family that struggled every month to just pay their electric bill was going to be able to afford the utilities bill and now *NEW AND BIGGER* property taxes. Did anyone ever think of that?? If you ask me, that's something that I don't think the family thought of that before doing this deal. This sounds more like a government deal that keeps on giving the whole year through. Maybe they should have gave them a million dollars to go with it..moreless
  • Extremely heartwarming show. This family truly care about one another and put the wants and needs of their mother and siblings before their own. I am so impressed with how appreciative they truly are.moreless

    A beautiful home for a beautiful family. If there was ever a family that deserves an extreme home makeover, it is the 'Rogers' family. I love the wonderful theme rooms, for the children. That dining table is wonderful, to be able to finally have her whole family sit together and enjoy their meals together is truly a blessing. Growing up in a family of seven (and we were also the 'Rogers' family) that always sat together for our meals, I know what a joy the family dining experience is. Since becoming a mother, my own small family did not always sit together for our meals. My family is now grown and if I could go back and do it over, I would definitely change it and make sure that we did sit together for dinner (at the very least) and enjoy each others company and share with each other what we did during the day, how we were feeling and our thoughts and wishes. When we did all sit together and have a meal, we had a great time and made lots of lasting memories. I see this family making lots of memories at that beautiful butcher block table, many years of enjoyment to come.

    The only reason I did not score this a ten, is the concerns I have for this family, that have already been mentioned in a couple other reviews and that is, why not monetary help for this woman? No financial help, mentioned, with the mortgage (if there was a mortgage), bills (electric, phone, water, sewer, gas, etc.), groceries, how about a vehicle that can transport them all together? How about some college funds set up for her children, to help them better themselves? Extreme Makeover - Home Edition, keep doing what you do. You don't just make dreams come true, you make miracles. I am sure that most of the families that you have helped, in their wildest dreams, would not have dreamed the homes they received, they probably wouldn't have dared dream up what you did for them. Not everything you do is a need, but for people that have never had or have done without for so very long, wants 'become' needs! Keep up the good work and keep on performing your 'Miracles!'moreless

I know the children will grow up to be wonderful people and that is exactly what the world needs! :D So nice to see them their mother and all the love they have. I must say I was very touched :)

    Well Done! Another deserving family, but ... at the beginning of the show the mother told that they can barely pay the bills for electricity.

    It\'s a beatiful home, but how long will they have it, if they can\'t pay the bills?

    After giving cars, paying the college for some kids and pay some mortgage in previous episodes, they should have done something like that too.

    But, as usual ... a very good episode!moreless
