Needing to make our house a home

As we all know, the world has been turned upside down the past couple of years for us all. However, on August 19th 2021 it turned on our beautiful twins and us in the worst possible way. Shortly after celebrating their 7th birthday, their mother Whitney Elrod had to be medically induced into a coma while knowing that her precious twins were fighting the same illness that was ravaging her body. Our 7 year old babies were now fighting a global pandemic a while being quarantined away from their mother that they knew was in a life and death struggle. After 29 days, God ended her suffering and called Whitney home at just 33 years old but not before blessing our girl and boy with healing grace. As they exited quarantine, it was time for their dad and I to fulfill the role as mother & father fulltime of the twins. Our small and crowded 3 bedroom and 1 1/2 bath went from 5 children and us to 7
children. Due to underlying health issues, I also faced a decision on my career at the prison as outbreaks soared. As we looked at our severely heart broken girls and boy, their dad and I decided that their mental well being was much more important than my career even though it left my husband as sole provider financially as we now face the problem of our home being too small for the simplest moments of peace and solitude when we need it most. With our finances now cut in half, the cost of the necessary renovations and expansion will cost us 30 thousand dollars. Thankfully, the contractor best qualified for our project was gracious enough to inform us that he would work with us and do the job for half down and not ask for another dime until completion due to our circumstances. We know times are hard for us all, but our family humbling asks that you help in any way you can as we set up a
GoFundMe account for our home. No donation is too small or unappreciated.
