Hello & Thank you for taking the time to read about my family and our struggle to rebuild our life after consecutive tragedies. Support our campaign, follow our progress & please share with family and friends.
In May of 2020, after being married for over four years, my husband and I made the life changing decision to grow our family ,and by January of 2021 our first child was born, our son. Shortly after we made another life changing decision and traded our city life for a quiet country life eight hours away from our familiar surroundings . Not too long after our family became even bigger ,in April of 2022 we welcomed our second child, our daughter.
For a short while life was absolute bliss, but painfully in June of 2022 we tragically lost our daughter. There are no words that can explain the deep sense of loss you experience when you lose your child, no matter the amount of time you were blessed to hold them. It has been over a year and to this day I still can not put it into words.
After depleting our family's savings and credit cards in order to lay our angel to rest we were forced to move back home with family, but that unfortunately would also end tragically. January 2023 on the morning of our son's second birthday ,our families’ home ( whom we were living with at the time ) caught fire. I honestly wish I could say that besides a few scrapes and burns we were all unharmed ,but sadly that isn't the case. Along with the majority of our worldly possessions we also lost ones we loved .My twelve year old sister and my father were tragically gone. In the course of six months our world crumbled completely.
It has been an incredibly difficult journey since our tragedies, and completely reverting back to normal isn't exactly an option at this point but, we are currently seeking therapy and working hard to rebuild what we once had. We've since been assigned to a shelter and are grateful for the roof over our heads but with all the debt piling up and the wait for government assistance we find ourselves getting deeper into a hole we fear we may not be able to dig ourselves out of.
