Veteran And Family Lose It All

 Hi my name is Stephen Brantley I am a disabled us Veteran of the army, my wife’s name is Iliana Brantley together we have 4 children. 1 girl & 3 boys ages 11 , 8, 5, 3 that consist of 2 children with disabilities one of which has Autism. Unfortunately on 12/16/17 in the wee hours of the morning we we’re woken up to fire on a wall in our kids bedroom, the fire completely engulfed the house within a matter of minutes and caused us to loose 3 of our beloved pets to smoke inhalation our vehicle and absolutely everything we had in the house other then what we had on. The fire department worked on the house for over 6 hours, we currently don’t have a place to live or stay any house hold item clothes shoes toys or even wallets. We don’t know how much it will take or cost to start from nothing as this is something we have never experienced. Our main concern is getting our children’s lives back to as normal as possible after this experience and a place for them to call home and my son with autism back into services so he doesn’t regress. All though nothing will erase the memory of what happened to us and we have literally lost everything we have ever owned/built in our lives we are blessed to have our family and our fur babies that did survive the fire with us . We are in desperate need this holiday and really need your help anything at all helps when your in this type of situation we are asking that not only you donate if you can but also send prayers, & share our story so that others can help in anyway even resources would be great . We might not have anything but we have everything because we have each other and we are blessed non the less, and are determined to overcome this tragedy but we know we cannot do it alone thank you very much for taking the time out to read our story and reach out to us if you need any contact information for material donations please leave a comment and we will respond. Again thank you and happy holidays to you and your families. With love, Iliana& Stephen Brantley , Jazmine, jayden, Jonah & Joell ❤️
