Clean Slate!

The Carobine house was demolished on Thursday. The family has decided on a contractor and is looking at their options for rebuilding. Exciting and sad times as the family says goodbye to the old, and makes plans to rebuild a new home!

No More Hotel!!!

Stephanie, Joe and kids just got the keys to their rental home. They will be moving over the weekend. Everyone seems pretty excited about getting out of a cramped hotel! I will keep you all posted as they get more settled at the house.
The house is right around the corner from their home, so the kids can watch the building process, should be pretty fun from day to day.

Someones great idea...

A few people have sent e-gift cards to me for Stephanie and Joe. Thanks! With Target, they can actually combine and store all of their gift cards via their phone, and combine amounts, and access through either phone. Convenient! You can even just buy and send them an egift card from your phone directly to theirs!
 I am sure other stores do this as well, but I just received the Target one.

Getting Settled

The Carobine family is starting to get back in their daily routine with kids heading back to school and daycare. Stephanie and Joe are still trying to get alot of things in order.

For those who are still wanting to do something, it looks like the family is set on clothing.
The boys really could use books! Or maybe gift cards for them to choose their own books somewhere.

Staying in a hotel right now, they are tight on storage for items. Gift cards could allow for them to wait until they get into their rental home to assess their needs. Ikea, Giant, Target....

Thank you to everyone, the support the family has been given is AMAZING!!

So many people asking what they can get for the family...

So many people have been reaching out to Stephanie and Joe, it's heartwarming. Just your thoughts, prayers and kind words are more than appreciated by the family. Numerous times a day, though, people are telling me they want to help more.
Many have been asking about what the kids lost from Christmas. The kids lost all of their toys, movies and books. They are a 3 year old and an 8 year old boy.
The 3 year old enjoys all things related to Thomas the Train, Disney Cars, Toy Story
The 8 year old likes, Nintendo 3DS Games, Legos, Spy Gear Items, Bayblade
They both need books!

Family Update

Things are moving forward quickly for the family. They will be in a hotel for the next 2 weeks, while they wait for a rental home to be ready for them to move into for the next year. It sounds like they will be able to get a home around the corner so it will be an easy transition for the kids. We will keep you posted as things progress. Thank you all again for all your help and concern!!
