When the "Ellen Show" offered "New Day" the opportunity to shower one lucky mom-to-be with the same gifts she gave her entire audience on Friday, we asked YOU to send in your nominations. We have received dozens and dozens of emails and learned about so many incredible and deserving women, it was extremely difficult to choose just one.
Melissa Hopkins won the grand prize. She and her husband Steve have a daughter and adopted their son from India. Now, Melissa is expecting twins! She (a teacher/tutor) and her husband (a school principal) dream of opening an international school for children living in impoverished countries.
Melissa and children joined Margaret, along with Laurie Esko, who nominated her good friend Melissa for the contest.
