Katrina and Mike Carr and their four adopted children are an inspirational family who strive every day to overcome severe physical challenges while living in a cramped and dangerous home. For the Extreme Makeover team and the hundreds of East Texas volunteers who will build the Carrs a new home. It's a Texas-sized opportunity to give back to a family who are role models of spirit and resilience.
Comedian, actor, producer, and author Bill Engvall will be the celebrity volunteer for this build.
Katrina and Mike Carr met while working at a summer camp for special-needs children. After they married six years later, the couple followed their passion of making a difference in the lives of others by adopting four kids from Kazakhstan who were abandoned at birth. Two of the children were born with Amniotic Band Syndrome, which caused Ryanne, now 7, to have both legs and one arm amputated, and Rina, 3, to lose a leg. Their brother Nikolas, 9, was recently diagnosed with Sensory Integration Dysfunction, which causes an inability to organize information as it comes through the senses. Compounding the family's struggles, health problems have required their father Mike, 41, to have both pancreas and kidney transplants over the past decade.

Mutual Fund To Check Out
I was recommended to check out Vanguard mutual funds. I am a day trader so I done some digging into there fund family. I was very impressed with the over all returns so I invested into this fund family and within 4 weeks I am already making a profit. Depending on your age and circumstances a Roth IRA is a very good way to go in the long run. Check out the Vanguard overview and it maybe a good fund for your portfolio as well.
