In the early morning hours of January 8, 2014 in Fairhope, AL, James and Carmen Blevins' home burned to the ground leaving them with everything lost. Jordan, their grandson became a true hero by pulling James, his grandfather whom is wheelchair bound, to safety after his blanket caught fire from the space heater. James rec'd burns and is now in the burn unit in Mobile, Alabama hospital. After pulling his grandfather to safety, Jordan went back into the burning home to save the others. Jordan received burns and cuts from breaking windows to help save his grandmother and girlfriend. They both are going to be ok. This is my great friend's, Tatia Symanski's father and son. Carmen, her mother and Caroline, Jordan's girlfriend are ok but needs our strength through prayers to get them through this. Please add this family to your prayers and if you can please donate what you can to help this family get back on the road to recovery. Funds will go straight to them. Thank you so much for all you are able to do. May God bless you!
**note: Friends of the family have contacted me to request that the goal amount be raised. This family lost everything, live on a fixed income, James is wheelchair bound and their home was not insured! We can do this! With everyones help, we can do this! Through God, all things are possible.

Tonight I have a heavy heart. My mom and dad have moved into a new home and we know we are blessed beyond measure. One thing that lies heavy on my heart is that Mom is severely depressed. Because of the fire and her having to move away the past few months she lost her job. She is on a fixed income and still has her SSI income but what she worked to make up for the extra is gone. I know it is a lot to ask but please if any of you can, please donate. Anything will help. I promise it won't go unnoticed and I promise to pay it forward.

Hey! I have several people who have gathered up clothes/shoes for Jordan and his girlfriend. I will be picking most of them up this coming up week. Once I receive them, who should I take the clothes to? I don't mind driving to Mobile or wherever y'all are to drop off.
Praying daily for this family. Everyone of you that are donating is awesome. You have no idea how much you are TRULY HELPING THEM. Tatia is a good friend of mine and I hate this happened, but it did and now we all must come together and help this family
Praying for this family.
