This morning I woke up to one of the most terrifying calls of my life. My Dad called me to tell me our home of 15 years burned down to the ground. Everybody is OK. Only minor injuries. The house burned down within 20 minutes... my mom somehow woke up in time to get everyone out... Gratitude doesn't even begin to explain the feeling of still having my family, however we are devastated because we lost everything. Every last thing. So many people have already asked what we need and how they can help. I really don't know where to start, but meeting this goal will do so much for us. Thank you all in advanced for everything!!! We are in awe at how many of you have already reached out. We are loved. Thank you, thank you, thank you. We are all so happy to be alive and well.
