Extreme Makeover Home Edition- Toledo
Well, for anyone who didn't hear, Extreme Makeover Home Edition was in Toledo about 2 weeks ago. And if that's not exciting enough, a family from Washington Local Schools was chosen for the show! This particular family has 11 boys, 5 of them adopted from Haiti and inner city Toledo. I had Joadson (Joe), in the bright blue shirt, in class 2 years ago. You can see the before picture of the house behind them; I don't know how they did it. There wasn't even a basement! The show will not air until November, but I walked down to the site with some co-workers one afternoon and took some shots of the close-to-finished product. What an amazing thing and such a boost for the pride and unity of Toledo.
