Things were getting better in Amanda Sydney’s life. Amanda’s year 2017 was supposed to be full of love, great things, and hope for the future.

When she finally got pregnant, she and her husband had been trying for a baby for three years, and they had just moved into a house they had been fixing up for almost two years.

Amanda was in great shape, and she was as happy as could be. She was about to have her hopes and dreams crushed in the worst way possible.

When her husband told her he wanted to leave, he got up and left right away. Before Amanda could catch her breath, she was alone, pregnant, and deep in debt.

Amanda thought about her situation by herself. She was a mental wreck and didn’t know what was going to happen to her or her baby. She didn’t have any money and was expecting a baby. Anna was there for her, and it was Anna who had the bright idea to write to her local radio station, KIIS 1065, and ask if she could be considered for a spot in their “give back” feature.

The radio station found out about Amanda’s situation, and they decided to help her. They knew that helping by themselves would be hard, so they asked local businesses for help.

Amanda and Anna were asked to do a piece on the radio, but Amanda didn’t know what was going to happen. She told the hosts that the unknown was the hardest part of the situation.

“It’s been five weeks,” the story’s narrator says… “I think the biggest problem is the shock, because it wasn’t what we thought it would be.”

Amanda turned around to see a video tour of her new house on the TV screen behind her. She was surprised by how much they talked about what they had done to help her.

The vacuum cleaner meant that the house would be cleaned for free for the next six months, and the food in the fridge meant that Eat Fit Food would provide daily meals for the next three months. On the counter, she found baby items worth $4,000 and a voucher for newborn pictures worth $1,000.

Everyone freaked out when the camera zoomed in on the oven and showed that the door was open.

There was a LOT of money in the oven. Because of the $10,000, Amanda won’t have to worry about her mortgage for a long time.

Amanda cried so hard that she couldn’t stop, and all she could say was:

“This means I don’t have to go anywhere right now…

I can’t give you enough thanks.”

Her 2017 is not what she planned or even wanted, but strangers’ kindness has given her and her child a great start all over again.
