Most of you know Inessa's lifelong dream of living in Oregon was accomplished when she got a home out there. She spent years of working two jobs, saving, and preparing her heart to separate from our family for 3 short years until she returned to us.
Some of you know that days before her arrival to Oregon her house caught fire. She lost everything she shipped, her clothes, the books she wrote, sentimental items, shoes, all the cookware she bought for her dream home.
She also lost deposits, prepaid rent, her investments into becoming an Oregon citizen like license plates...etc., she lost the plane tickets she prepaid to send the people back home who were helping her drive there.
As we all know Inessa is one of the most loving, selfless, and caring person that I can honestly say Is a rare gem in my life. She is quick to say yes to help someone and spends her time finding ways to make it work even when helping isn’t plausible at the time. She never shows stress to that person because the people she loves are worth her everything. Her time, her worries, her money is second.
I have seen my sister broke and spend her grocery money to go out with a friend who said they really wanted to see her "that" day... I’ve seen her countless times stretch her gas money to buy her loved one's a gift on their birthday. She doesn’t show her stress she shows her love first.
Right now she is staying strong. I know she would never ask you all for help, ever. Inessa would think first of how the money you may give may put u in a bind but she would never consider how much even a little would help her because of that reason.
So I ask family and friends for her... I ask for even the smallest donation so she can buy some clothes/shoes, rebuy her art supplies, and get back on her feet. Anything would help and I know even your loving words will be cherished by her and bring her to tears.
Thank you so much Naomi Jones for this amazing idea!!!! If it wasn't for you I never would even be here asking. Thank you Carolyn Hostetter for adding your love to this idea wanting to put clothes on her back. You both have hearts I admire and cherish! You are a blessing in our lives.
