Amanda is a woman from Sydney, Australia. She and her husband had two dreams. They wanted to buy their dream house, and they wanted to have a baby. Sadly, Amanda had three miscarriages. After each one, her heart broke. Finally, around the same time, the couple was finishing the renovations on their dream house, Amanda found out that she was pregnant. The house was looking great, the pregnancy was progressing normally, and then, her world came crashing down around her.
Amanda was 8-months pregnant when her husband told her that he was leaving her for another woman. Amanda was in shock. They had everything going for them, and he was walking out the door. She was deep in debt because they put their entire savings toward the house. Amanda didn’t have a job and had no income. How would she pay her mortgage and support her baby and herself?
Fortunately, Amanda had good friends. Her best friend’s name is Anna. She had stood by Amanda through thick and thin. Seeing how hurt and afraid Amanda was, she knew that she had to do something. She didn’t have the money to help Amanda, and she certainly wasn’t going to try to bring her husband home. She decided to reach out to the local radio station, KIIS.
The radio station was famous for its Give Back segment. It is where they find out about people in need. They turn to local business for donations of money, services, and items. The station doesn’t offer this type of help to just anyone. They only offer their support to those who are in desperate need. People like Amanda. When Anna reached out to the station and told them Amanda’s story, they were more than willing to help.
The station invited Amanda and Anna to be on the show. Amanda wasn’t told why she was going on the show. Anna told her something about a best friend segment. She had no idea what was in store for her.
The radio hostess asked Amanda about her recent heartbreak. She told the hostess that it had been five weeks since her husband left and it had been difficult on her. She says that she was in shock because they had planned and saved for their future for a long time. She explained that she was terrified each time she thought about her future. Because she couldn’t find a job due to her advanced pregnancy, she was going to lose her home and wouldn’t be able to support herself. Without her husband’s help, she didn’t know how she would be able to take care of her baby. She never expected to be a single parent, and she didn’t know if she could handle it.
When Amanda finished telling her heartbreaking story, the radio hostess brought out a television screen. Amanda was shocked when she saw that there was a man on the screen and he was in her home. The camera was capturing the man in real time. He looked into the camera and told Amanda that he had a few surprises for her.
First, the man walked over to a vacuum cleaner that Amanda had never seen before. She thought her gift was the vacuum cleaner, but it was more than that. It symbolized the free six months of housecleaning that someone had donated. Next, there was a new refrigerator in the house. It symbolized the free three months of Eat Fit Food meals that would be delivered to her so she could focus more on the baby and less on shopping and cooking. On the counter was $4,000 worth of baby supplies and a $1,000 voucher for baby photos. This was great because babies are expensive. Also, what mother doesn’t want professional photos of her baby taken? Next, the man went over to the stove. When he opened it, it was full of $10,000 in cash. This would be enough money for Amanda to cover her mortgage for a while.
By the time the display was over, Amanda was in tears. For the first time in five weeks, they were sad tears; they were happy ones. For the first time in a while, she felt like she was going to be alright and she had Anna and the radio station to thank.
If anyone deserved gifts so great, it was Amanda. Husband leaves pregnant wife in terrible debt, then she notices something in the oven, and it changes her life. Finally, she could relax and enjoy her pregnancy without being worried about being homeless. She was truly thankful.
