A mom from Hope Mills was honored Friday for not only what she does for her own family, but for the special connection she has made with another family in need of help.It started with a letter and ended with a big gift.

Rose Page works with another family's autistic son, takes care of her own children, and still manages to attend community college with hopes of becoming a nurse.

The mother of the autistic boy wrote to Regis and Kelly to nominate her for the show's 15th annual Mom's Dream Come True awards.

Page was selected and was given an all expense paid vacation and a new car to replace hers - which has broken down.
