Amanda Fourie of Johannesburg, South Africa received the ultimate payback Thursday for supporting her brother and his girlfriend through tough times after the birth of their triplet sons.

Always one to put family first, Amanda Fourie has a reputation for her thoughtfulness and acts of kindness. She's always had a great relationship with her brother to the point that beyond being related they regard each other as best friends too.

So it came as a shock when she discovered that brother Jackson, who was working two jobs to make ends meet, and his girlfriend Leandra, were visibly exhausted from caring for their new family. Heartbroken, Amanda made herself available around the clock to lend them a helping hand around the house despite she often worked 10 hour days herself.

“When times are tough, it’s your family that supports you,” Amanda says. "I couldn't believe it at first when they first had scans and found out they were having three babies. We all knew it would be tough... I just did what any good sister would do and did whatever I could for them all."
