Trying To Recover From House Fire

Dear Facebook family early this morning my children and I were just saved by the grace of God from permanent injury or death. I have been trying to get my youngest daughter Mia the proper help for her inability to sleep for over a year now and I take off early once a week to take her to University of MD for behavioral therapy and she is in progress of medication management. She struggles with going to sleep and this morning I woke up from the first night in a long time of us all sleeping downstairs having family night and I went upstairs to go to bed and turned around to turn the heat off and noticed all kinds of smoke from the kitchen. Long story short Mia attempted to bake a cake with a bowl on the stove while we were all asleep and started a fire and tried to put it out by adding towels to it which caused it to keep growing... me and Arianna my oldest, tried to put the fire out but it engulfed the entire kitchen and the smoke took over the entire house. Fortunately, we safely made it out, but had we been upstairs like we typically and normally are we would all have been dead. Please pray for us and what the future holds...we cannot go back to our place because of the fire damage. The loss of belongings and items are the least of our concerns at this moment because we are all just so blessed and happy to be alive because any other night we would’ve all been upstairs and perished in this fire so we are very very grateful and blessed all of us including our pets are in a hotel safely trying to piece together what our next move will be. Prayers and donations are greatly appreciated as we begin to try and heal from this ordeal. This is still so surreal and I’m just trying to stay as positive as I can
