Christmas came early for the Friday family, and the "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" team had the best possible gift for all of them. Devonda and James Friday had recently adopted five siblings, so that they wouldn't be separated. But five kids were a lot to take in all at once, and more than their house could physically handle comfortably.
The new house was completed in December 2011, allowing the family to spend their first Christmas together in a more comfortable and more spacious environment. And the design team had given the kids something they'd never had before: their own rooms.
"I’ve always had to share with everybody and never got anything of my own, and now I do," said 14-year-old Kamaya. "And that’s awesome."
The Charlotte Observer said that the family is gearing up to celebrate their second Christmas together in their new home, while remembering that magical week a year ago when it was built by tuning into the final of these special "tenth season" special episodes of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."
