Dr. Phil’s wife, Robin McGraw, spearheaded a special Mother’s Day episode 17 seasons ago to surprise deserving moms who were going through difficult times in their lives. Josie’s son, Matt, wrote the show to nominate his mother, and Josie was gifted with a brand new SUV. Today, Matt and Josie are back to thank Robin and reveal how that Mother’s Day show changed their lives. “We had nothing at that moment going for us right, and when I wrote that letter, I had no idea the impact it would have on our lives,” says Matt in the video above. Josie says, “Thank you for doing that. I appreciate it. I’m still crying after 16 years.” Want to see more guest updates?
