Amanda wants to be a model. Her parents, Rob and Crystal, say she is always singing and dancing around the house and is definitely preparing for stardom. Rob and Crystal always dreamed about owning their own home one day. When they got the chance to assume the mortgage of the house they were renting, they jumped at it. Now, things are tight; even with their temporary jobs they need the help of the tax credit for their children.
