After Hurricane Harvey in 2017 and a slew of winter storms in 2016 devastated their home, the brothers found themselves in need of assistance.

Jaylan admitted that at one point, he was done with the house and had thought of selling it, but it carried a lot of memories.

The brothers were called by Katy Responds, a company that helps Texas families recover from calamities, and they were informed that the house will be fixed with the aid of generous volunteers.

The young 12-year-old was seen fighting back tears when the brothers saw the renovations for the first time.

Jaylan said:

"I love it, I'm speechless, way more than we asked for. Completely grateful."

Jaylan will be able to fulfil his commitment to his mother to take care of Julian, thanks to this gift.
