Family Displaced After Tragic House Fire

We never think it’ll happen to us until it does. On Saturday morning around 5am on 3/4/23 I was awoken by our kitten who I thought just wanted to play. A few minutes later we noticed smoke and opened the door to complete darkness. The smoke was so thick it was hard to see and breathe. Survival mode came in and we were able to get our family of 4 under 8 years old out the house safely. Our kitten made it out the house too and we’re sitting in the car in just our pajamas waiting for the fire department to show up. An hour later our house is still smoking. 2 hours later we were able to go to our neighbors while watching 12 fire engines pull up to our house. 3 hours later we’re frazzled but we’re okay. 4 hours later we found our kitten back inside the house… she passed away.
The house is a mess, we’re distraught, my family is staying in a hotel, our clothes are ruined, the food has gone bad. To make things worse we were in between insurance companies and they won’t cover the damages to our home.
We owe our lives to our 5 month old kitten that woke us up just in time to get us out of the house safely.
We have been graced by GOD as our family is safe but this is an extremely difficult place to be with 4 children under the ages of 8 and no home.
Please support our rebuilding process as best as you can.
