When we see a good act, we applause; when we see an extraordinary act, we honor. Such is the case of and Indiana mom who threw herself on top of her children so she could shield them from a massive tornado that wrecked their home.

Stephanie Decker is a 36-year-old Indiana mother of two, Domnic, 8, and Reese, 5, who she managed to protect, through losing lost parts of both her legs in the process. Her two children walked away without a scratch, causing the father of the two boys, Joe Decker to term it a miracle.

“What I told her was, ‘You’re alive and you get to see your kids grow up,’” ………. “If you look in the basement, there’s no way anybody should have lived, let alone two kids who don’t have a scratch on them.”

He explained how he had sent his wife a text telling her that the radar was showing a tornado was headed directly for their home. Then he confirmed that his wife had arrived at their home a few minutes earlier then she’d taken their kids to the basement; “then just she stopped texting me,” he said, “She was on top of them.”

According to reports by the The Courier-Journal, Stephanie is in stable condition at University Hospital in Lousiville.
