Couple adopts 3 kids of their dying neighbor, only to come home and find house is totally different

How this amazing lady came forward to support three kid’s of her dying neighbor is truly inspiring! Simply a story of love and warmth that qualifies some of us to be still called human.

Tisha and her husband already had their hands full looking after their family with 5 children.  When Audrey, their neighbor came up with an unexpected request for a favor, Tisha did not think twice.

Audrey, a single mother of three asked her neighbor Tisha, a Las Vegas bingo cashier, if her three kids could spend the night at her house. Audrey needed to go to the hospital to get some tests done. Well, Audrey’s eldest daughter and Tisha’s daughter were friends, and Tisha did not mind one night of cramped rooms.

But then, Audrey came home with devastating news. She was diagnosed with stage two esophageal and stomach cancer.

Audrey knew the inevitable would happen and was desperate to make sure her kids would be looked after. Although Tisha was just a neighbor and they were not particularly close, she took a chance and asked Tisha to be the legal guardian of her children.

To her surprise and relief, both Tisha and Kevin agreed. The overburdened parents of five had space enough in their hearts and home to include Audrey’s kids too and let her live at peace for the short period she had left.


Audrey passed away sooner than expected as the stage 2 reached stage 4 in no time. Now they were a family of 10.

But what was it in Tisha’s past that  urged her to take on such a great responsibility…


And then, what was it that she and her family receive in return from society that made all involved so happy for them, that tears would not stop flowing.

Watch the video below how Fox 5 Surprise Squad threw them a surprise, the extent to which they themselves did not know they were capable of going.
