With only seconds to spare, her house was lifted off its foundation and she shielded her children from a falling beam, which crushed her legs.

"The hype was all over the news about the weather, and how different of a storm was expected," Stephanie said, recalling the day on March 2nd, 2012. "I can tell you minute by minute what happened, it's like a movie reel in my head."

As she covered her children to protect them, she remembered thinking, "I really thought the last words to them were I love you."
