House Fire - Ryckman Family

On Saturday, May 19th while celebrating that our son turned one month old, I stood up to grab my camera to film my day and I smelt what I described as the smell of a sparkler. I asked my partner, Noah if he could check what it was and upon opening the door to investigate we realized that our house was on fire when thick black smoke entered our room. I grabbed my son and we evacuated our home right away.

After hours of waiting for any news on what was happening we discovered that all of our things had been destroyed by the fire or extremely damaged by heavy smoke. We lost all of our things including all of our one months old sons things that we accumulated over the past 10 months. We were just starting out as a family and now we must completely start over again.

I hate to ask for help but I know that it is truly needed. Thank you so much in advance.
