Recovery after house fire!

Last week during the beautiful snow storm, our family woke to our house on fire! We are very blessed with so many loving family members and friends offering help and support. The question from most of you is what can I do to help? We don't have all answers of how we are going to move ahead or if the house will/can be repaired. We do know one thing is creating stability in this situation will help in our success with moving forward! The focus is to keep my boys stable in their school and myself stable with my job. The rest of issues will only take time and focus. In moving forward my family has decided that buying a cheap small camper will be the best way to help in our recovery. That way we can remain on the property, keep boys in their school, keep my job, work in the evenings saving and cleaning anything salvageable, and slowly gut our home. Most of you are from Louisiana and know the struggles after floods/hurricanes. We are raised to survive and be strong! We are also raised to not ask for handouts but at this time I must swallow my pride for my boys. Every little bit will help! I know this is the holiday season and most of you are already stretching your dollar. Even if you can't financially support us please share post and keep us in your thoughts/prayers.
Thanks so much for loving us!
