And you are looking at the George R. Brown convention center in Houston right now. It is home to 8,000 victims of the storm. And now a story of hope. All week long, Matt Gutman has been following the journey of an expecting mom and her miracle baby. Reporter: At nine months pregnant, the last place Danielle weeks wants to be is staring out into a hurricane, but six days before her scheduled c-section, hurricane Harvey is barreling toward her costal home in port aransas, Texas. We have never seen anything like this before. It is just incredible. Reporter: A mandatory evacuation is ordered but her doctors don't want her traveling far. Danielle, her husband William and their two little girls grab what they can and quickly flee inland to Corpus Christi to ride out the storm in a hotel near the hospital. This is Elizabeth. And then our 5-year-old is hiding back there. Reporter: Does it make you nervous, seeing what's going on outside your window? Yeah. Very nervous. We're pretty worried that we won't have a home to go back to. Reporter: By Saturday afternoon, it's safe to go outside and just days from delivery, Danielle needs to know what happened to this their home. Reporter: Do you have any idea what you guys are going to find? We've seen a couple pictures from the park and it's not looking very good -- Reporter: But they don't get far, a police road block. We have an active search and rescue going on. No one is allowed in until we get that taken care of. Reporter: News that the weeks can't go home to see if they even have a home is an emotional gut punch. One that brings little Annabella to tears. But authorities allow us as members of the press past the roadblock to see the mind-numbing wreckage. The town of port aransas that weeks family once knew was now busted and broken. Oh, my god. That's the trailer park. The entire area littered with mobile homes, flipped, mangled and mashed. The con at the present timcontents of people's lives, scattered across the pachlt. The sun is starting to set until we find the weeks' home, or at least what's left of it. That's what's left of their rv. That is their SUV. This is the worst they could have hoped for. Pe hoped something would be salvageable, but nothing in this entire rv home camp is worth salvaging. Their home is gone, but something even more precious is coming. Let's go have a baby. Reporter: At 11:00 A.M., five days after hurricane Harvey made landfall, baby loralynn came wailing into the world. Congratulations, papa. Thank you very much. You guys have weathered the worst nightmare but now you have this. Reporte but today is bittersweet, as William finally gets to see his home. The sight is immediately emotional bringing William to tears. William and his mother, start going through the sand covered debris that was once their family's memories. It suspect long before one special item is found, Annabella's dress, one she wore on her first day of school. It fit so perfect with this area, and having the anchors like a little Navy girl. Reporter: But still, this is a family that like so many here is just trying to rebuild, starting with seven pounds of snoozing sweetness. Until just a few minutes ago, the weeks weren't quite sure what they were going to do. They thought, maybe they would stay in the hotel and then have to figure it out. But we just learned that a bird of one of those tiny houses all the way out in Colorado has committed to shipping them a home as early as next week. The only question is, where to put it? Their town of port aransas is destroyed and will probably be uninhabitable for at least several months, george. You know how to finish a story. Thanks very much.
