The Taylor Family

Hi everyone,

My name is Alex Coleman and I first met Carrie back in 2007 at graduate school for speech pathology at San Francisco State.  We became instant friends and I would visit her former home in Petaluma often.  My husband, Michael, and I moved to Novato last year and we were so happy to be closer to them.

Last year, Carrie's husband, Jeff, attended graduate school in New Hampshire and they decided to return to the Bay Area with another baby girl on the way.  They moved back to Santa Rosa August 15th into a rental home with Carrie's parents and brother.  Carrie and Jeff's 4 -year-old daughter, Ellie had just started preschool in Santa Rosa three weeks ago. The Taylors welcomed a new baby girl, Juliet, to the family on September 25th .

They were in the process of settling into their new life when disaster hit. The Taylor family has just lost their home and everything they own in the Santa Rosa fires.

They were all forced to leave with nothing more than the clothes on their back in the middle of the night.  However, everybody made it out safely including the two dogs.

They are the most caring and wonderful family and it would be so great to help them with any financial support for their girls. Their hearts are broken due to this total loss.

Please help with any donation you can, everything counts. Money will be used to buy the bare essentials and go toward finding housing for the Taylors and Carrie's parents.

We hope to provide the Taylor family some support during this challenging time through our circle of friends and supporters.

The main picture is of the Taylors at the Santa Rosa house that burned down. The pictures below are photos of the family in New Hampshire and one of me and Carrie and little Juliet. 

Jeff Taylor will be the beneficiary of the funds and he has access to this GoFundMe page in order to withdrawl the money.
