Dr. Phil is joined on stage by Marty, Erin, Katherine and Alex. Addressing Alex, Dr. Phil says, "In looking back ... did you doubt at any time along the way whether keeping Nathan was the right decision or not?"

Amee jumps in, "I didn't sleep for a week after he was born. I was so happy and excited.

They both thank Dr. Phil.
Her husband Paul adds, "We knew as soon as we read those first two e-mails. We were looking at each other and we were like, 'Is this real?' We decided to adopt two babies from two separate birth mothers."
Tearfully, Tiffany tells Dr. Phil, "Because of your words, we actually are sitting with two of the most special, wonderful, wonderful children and we are so thankful."
"That is absolutely amazing and those children are beautiful," Dr. Phil says. "One of the things I've always said about this show is we deal with real people in the real world with real issues in real time." He points out how Erin's e-mail about Alexandra's pregnancy affected Tiffany and Paul's journey to be adoptive parents. "So how do you feel about this dad?" he asks Paul.
"You do realize you are now surrounded by women for the rest of your life?" Dr. Phil jokes. "Those girls own you buddy!"
Dr. Phil congratulates the couple.
