It's been almost one year since tornadoes touched down in Oklahoma, destroying countless homes and nearly wiping out an entire neighborhood in Piedmont.

Our heart strings were tugged when we learned a 3-year-old boy was missing after a tornado flattened his home. His pregnant mom, brother and sister, badly hurt.

Both of the family's little boys were killed in the storm. It's hard for any of us to image. Now for the first time, the entire Hamil family sits down together to share how faith, family and friends have kept them strong through the heartache.

The Hamils now live in a home with a basement that they've already used for shelter during this spring's storms. They're planning to build a new house that they say will definitely include a storm shelter.
