Disabled Vet Home Lost to Fire

Our family lost everything today (12/19), including our 2 beloved family dogs to a house fire. We found out that we are severely under insured and have an entire home, 10 years worth, of belongings to replace in order to get back to somewhat of a normal life again. All of our Christmas presents for our two children were in our home at the time as well. Any help given is extremely appreciated. Thank you.

*UPDATE* 12/20: As you can all imagine things have been chaotic over the last 24 hours or so. We are incredibly grateful for everything everyone has donated and words will never come close to showing how grateful our family actually is.

A little about our family... We are a family of 4. My husband, Joshua, and I have been together for 10 years and this Monday (December 23rd) marks our 8th wedding anniversary. Together we have one little boy, Dominik who turned 8 last month. We also have legal custody and care for my sister Cheranne who is 14. My husband served 7 years in the Army as a Military Police Officer for 3 years and was forced to reclass due to an injury he sustained on his first deployment. He reclassed to the Satellite Communications field, and held that for the next 4 years. His injury kept him from doing his job to the best of his ability leading him to a medical discharge. He served a total of two tours one to Iraq and the other to Cuba.

Our family deeply misses our pups. Kobe had been with us since 2007 when we rescued him and Kloe we just rescued this past March. Both were family, they were like crazy fun little four legged nuts... Kinda like our kids and the kids siblings.

I have had many people ask about clothing sizes for us and so I thought it appropriate to post them here for all. Any clothing that is donated that doesn't fit or we are unable to use we will pay it forward and donate to others in need. None will be sold and none will be donated to any place that charges for the clothing. We will make sure that they are given to others in need.

Dominik: Size 8 or Small in Boys clothing. Size 13 in Boys shoes.
Cheranne: Size 11 or Extra Large in Junior clothing, Size 8 in Womens shoes.
Joshua: Size 36x34 Jeans, Large/Extra Large in mens. Size 8/8.5 in Mens shoes.
Zandra: Size 11 or Large in Junior clothing. Size 7 in Womens shoes.

Message us to set up any meetings for donations. Any and all questions can also be asked through the message option as well. We wish you all well this holiday season and hope for you that this is something you and your loved ones never have to experience.
