It's just heartbreaking... they are losing all of their furniture, carpet, their bedding, their clothes, and toys, almost all of their belongings. The total estimated costs of just the clean up is $28,000-$30,000 and that doesn't even include the replacement of all of their belongings. The contractor is taking zero responsibility and will not help, and claims no insurance.
My sister and brother in law work their tails off and are just getting started out in life. They are so kind and diligent and hard working; this is a devastating blow. When they are allowed to go home, everything needs to be replaced (carpets, furnace, all furniture, bedding, clothes, electronics, appliances, and toys which is estimated at an additional $20k to $30k.) My nephew cries daily about wanting to go home and play with his toys (which are no longer viable) and we have to explain that "their house is broken".
My sister kindly is always looking for a silver lining and I was touched to hear her say, that in some very sad way, hopefully the blessing from this nightmare is that maybe it will prevent another family in the future to have to go through this one day.
I thank you for you thoughts and prayers and any contributions is vastly appreciated.
