Oprah Gives a Single Mom the Surprise of a Lifetime

Aired on 05/16/1997 | CC
Single mom Jennifer had endured so much difficulty in life—from fleeing domestic violence with her three daughters to working tirelessly to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads. In 1997, after receiving a heartfelt letter from Jennifer's daughters explaining the depth of their mom's sacrifice, Oprah did the best thing she could to ease the family's struggle: She surprised them with a brand new four-bedroom house! Jennifer's reaction is priceless.
