Restart Our Life

My name is Tyrsa and I'm a wife and mother of 4 children. My husband’s name is Eric and my kids are Beauty age 6, Malachi age 5, Kori age 3, and Erica age 8 months. On Tuesday, January 16th our home burned down in an electrical fire. Fortunately, we were not home. Our dog, Poochy, was in the house, but was rescued by a good-Samaritan. We are very thankful that everyone is okay. Now we are focused on rebuilding our lives. We lost everything in the fire, including my children’s new Christmas presents and my wedding dress, which I was hoping to pass down to my girls. We also lost all of the pictures from our family vacations and the blankets from my son, Elijah, who passed away as a baby. While we are devastated about losing these sentimental items, which can never be replaced, we are also hoping to rebuild our lives as quickly as possible to minimize the disruption in our children’s lives. We will be needing to get new clothes, toys, bedding, furniture, etc. We would appreciate anything you can give to help us get back on our feet.
