Synopsis


"Augustin Family" - Ty and the designers will be traveling to Keller, Texas to announce to the Augustin family, who lost their home and not-for-profit photography studio in a flood, that they will have a new home built in only seven days, on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.

Amber Augustin started up her volunteer photography business, "Tiny Works of Heart," which was inspired by the premature birth of her third child, son Lane. The challenge of Lane's birth and the family's emotional and financial struggles during this period inspired Amber to volunteer her time and talent as a photographer to taking pictures of babies born in the N.I.C.U. (neonatal intensive care unit). Many of the babies born in N.I.C.U. don't survive, making time spent between parents and their fragile babies very precious. For that reason, Amber started a free service and mission called "Tiny Works of Heart" to give families a chance to professionally capture their time with their fragile child. She also volunteers a great deal of time with an established organization whose intent is to provide hope, comfort, memories and a sense of "normalcy" to the families during these tough times.

On Father's Day 2007, the Augustin family's life was turned inside out when a flood ravaged their home. The damage was so extensive that the home was entirely destroyed, as well as Amber's photography studio. Now it is up to Ty and the designers to rebuild their home and photography studio, which brought joy into the lives of hundreds of families affected by premature birth.

While Ty and the designers, local builder Wall Homes and hundreds of volunteers and workers are rebuilding their home, the Augustin family will go on vacation to Hawaii for a Hilton vacation.

The design team for this episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" will feature team leader Ty Pennington and designers Paul DiMeo, Eduardo Xol, Tracy Hutson and John Littlefield.
