Last November, Oprah boarded her Wildest Dreams Bus and headed to Starbucks to surprise Bernadette
, a beloved employee who single-handedly supports a family of 12. After treating her children, nieces and nephews to a Toys "R" Us shopping spree, Oprah gave Bernadette a gift that couldn't fit under the Christmas tree—a brand new house!
After six months of house hunting, Bernadette finally found the perfect place
for her elderly mother, three children, and seven nieces and nephews who she rescued from foster care.
Then, it was Nate's turn to try his hand at the dream-making business. The day the real estate papers were signed, Nate's dream team came up with the master plan for Bernadette's Chicago bungalow.
