Hello, my name is Maria. I am a mother to, now, 4 beautiful children. 6,2, and twins 1 month. I am writing this in hopes it reaches someone who could possibly help us out even just a little….,
On January 14th, 2022 me and my 2 children lost our home and everything in it to a house fire due to electrical problems that my landlord was made aware of but did not fix. There was nothing that we could salvage, we had nothing. So me and my children moved in with my mom in the trailer our grandma left for all her grandchildren.
Then, on January 25th, 2023 a year after losing everything it happened again…. Another house fire. We once again lost literally EVERYTHING…. TWICE in a years time….. We were finally kind of moving forward from the first fire, adjusting. Getting the main necessities for daily living back. And boom, get knocked back down
In between the fires, On December 9th, 2022 we lost a very important person to our family- my younger brother. He was only 24. He was loved by so many- my kids especially-if you knew him you couldn’t help but to love him. He touched and made a difference in so many ways and to so many people in his 24 short years. He was definitely a good one, i guess that saying “the good die young” is true…
On February 3, 2023 about a week after the 2nd fire I gave birth to twins. A boy and a girl. We had pretty much what we needed for a new baby-thanks to donations from the community my cousin had gathered for us and baby shower she threw.-but unfortunately the fire took all of that- like I said there was literally nothing that could be salvaged. I literally have nothing for the twins now…. Not a bassinet or crib or swings or anything at all-struggling to even be able to get diapers and wipes….
And to make things even worse and so much harder- I have no transportation because my one and only vehicle got stolen sitting outside of the first home that burned down. New babies always have more doctors appointments than usual at first- add a few extra for my twins being premature- but my boy twin Aaron is having to go see a cardiologist for a heart murmur, have ultrasounds done on his hips, see a urologist for hernias so that’s added a lot more appointments to that. And even just to be able to go grocery shopping and get what we need to eat is difficult….
So, as you can see we have been thru a lot in just a little time. I am having a real hard time replacing what my children had or even just making sure they have what they need now. They lost ALL of their Christmas presents BOTH years. So I guess I’m writing this in hopes that you could find it in your heart to help a struggling mom.
Anything that you could possibly help us with would be such a blessing. We would all be so grateful. We would appreciate it more than you could ever know. Please, help my family.
