This is our 'house' in the photo. My husband our small son and me were evacuated in the middle of the night as flames lit up our property before an evacuation notice could even get to us. We evacuated on flaming roadways with our new baby and pets. We were not able to take anything with us other than the clothes on our back and our sons carseat. Instead of stopping to grab anything possible from his home my husband rushed to alert our sleeping neighborhood to the fire sweeping in around us. He navigated through intense smoke and falling trees catching fire and blocking road ways in order to save his grandfather. Thanks to him his neighbors survived but unfortunately our property did not. He owned this property and that in itself was a massive undertaking and achievement for us but now the responsibility to not only pay for the hazardous clean up but also to rebuild our home falls on us financially. If you're someone who has a child you can understand how absolutely immobilizing it would be to suddenly lose ALL of your baby supplies and equipment overnight. Some of these things our family is working to try and replace for us but just as we are low income, so are all the rest of the family and its going to take months.
We needs help.
Side note- his birthday is in a few days and
he also has lymes disease. If you know anything about that condition you also know that the medication is UNREAL expensive.
Please consider a donation to help our small family get through such a horrific and traumatizing time.
