ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Gives Parents of Preemie a New Home
Date:2/25/2009

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- ABC's hit television series Extreme Makeover: Home Edition will focus this Sunday's 8 p.m. (ET) episode on a March of Dimes volunteer family from outside Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas whose child was born prematurely and whose home was later destroyed by a flood.

The Augustin family of Keller, Texas, received a new home in less than a week's time during the taping of the program in December 2008. The Augustins were selected because they are dedicated to helping other families with premature babies and because they are active volunteers for the March of Dimes.

Amber and Peter Augustin's son, Lane, was born severely premature in 2004. Two years later, on Father's Day, a flood destroyed their home as well as Amber's beloved photography studio.

"I take pictures for families of premature babies at the hospital because we never thought of photos while we were so worried about Lane's survival, and now I really wish I had them," says Amber Augustin. "Every parent, even if their baby is in newborn intensive care, wants baby photos to share with friends and family -- and to have the memories years later."

About the new house, Amber says, "I can't believe this is happening! Losing our home was a nightmare, but the silver lining is the support we've seen from our community and our family at the March of Dimes."

Lane, now 4-years-old, spent four weeks hospitalized in the neonatal intensive care unit at Baylor Healthcare Systems, and underwent countless surgeries before he was even a year old. Today, the preschooler still must overcome the challenges of his early birth trauma and on-going health challenges.

The Augustins have raised thousands of dollars to support March of Dimes research and other progr
