WAYNE, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Last week, we introduced you to the Below family. The Belows have adopted 7 children, all of whom have some type of disability. Two of their sons are completely dependent. One uses a wheelchair.

To meet these challenges, the Belows saved their money and used their tax return to buy a bus, which allowed them to transport all of their children at once.

Just a month after the family bought the bus, it was destroyed in a fire.

Now, someone who saw that story is stepping up to help the family. The company did not want to be identified, but will be giving the family a brand new bus. Better yet, it won't cost the Belows a thing.

"It's been overwhelming, very overwhelming. But we are so grateful, I just, can't even put into words how we all feel," said Deb Below.

The bus company will also be upgrading the family bus every two years, free of charge.
