Re: 5 Siblings Sue "Extreme makeover"
The parents of the Higgins children died 10 weeks apart in the spring of 2004 — the mother of breast cancer and the father of heart failure. The Leomitis, who knew the children from church, took them in to their home in July 2004, according to the lawsuit.
Producers of "Extreme Makeover" learned of the children's plight from a television newscast.
I think that statement says the show only picked the Liomiti's because they were adopting these kids, It doesn't sound like the Liomiti's came to ABC first in fact it sounds like ABC sought them out.
Climbing down from the bridge, but keeping the torch lit until Dusty's fate is settled
