Steve and Dori's home tragically caught on fire yesterday, March 8th while both of them and their kids were away at work and school. Dori's father, whom recently had a stroke, was home when the incidient happened. Luckily, Nelson walked away with just minor smoke inhalation. Unfortunately, there is not much left of their home. Dori, Steve, Nelson and the kids were left with absolutely nothing but the clothes on their back last night. 
Dori and Steve are some of the most helpful, friendly, willing people out there and would never ask for help from anyone. We are starting this page for them in order to help them back on their feet as much as possible. Please, if you could donate even the smallest amount, with all of the love of the amazing family and friends that we know Dori and Steve have touched in so many ways, I believe we can help them in a BIG way. 
Thank you so much for all of your support, I know Steve, Dori and Nelson will truly appreciate it.

So.....it's been three months since the fire - I haven't written since it first happened, so I wanted to give an update since it has been a while.

First and most importantly, I want to thank everyone in our lives for the continued support, love, strength, friendship, kindness...I could go on and on. You mean the world to me and my family. We are blessed to have the strongest, most amazing group of people that have held us up during one of the darkest times in our lives. 2017 has been a doozie for us so far, but we are slowly coming out of the fog and are feeling more and more like ourselves (thank goodness).

On a brighter note, we recently decided on a contractor and are anxiously awaiting demo to begin - we are keeping our fingers crossed that it begins in the next couple of weeks. Another blessing has been finding someone that we believe we can trust and feel confident that they will bring our house back to what is was before the fire.

This year has definitely been one that has tested my faith, my patience, and has shown me that I have a strength that I never would have imagined I possessed. It has helped me to see blessings in my life that I would have not taken note of. It makes me thankful for everything I have and see that even though I lost a lot this year, I still have so much in my life that brings me joy.

Thanks again to each of you for bringing smiles and hope back into our lives.

XOXOXO
