A Thank You note from the Wolf Pack

Words cannot express our gratitude fully. And yet, I will try. My husband and I felt so low and lost. We didn't know how we would be able to afford the drive. We didn't know what to do. We didn't really know how to ask for help. And we were drowning. The weight of the world felt like it was upon our shoulders. We were trying to sell everything we could and it wasn't making a difference. With our deadline fast approaching, we became more and more panicked. We slept less, argued more, all the while trying to hide our fear from our daughters, to keep their lives routine and safe. To keep them happy. Our marriage was falling apart. And we weren't sure how we would make it as husband and wife. We would've stayed together for the girls, but only as parents, not as the best friends we have been. Our love, the glue that had held us together through so much, was starting to dissolve. And we were both terrified. And then, all of our prayers, our pleas to God, were answered. It started with Angel, and it's snowballed from there. John and I were losing faith, not only in each other, but in community and humanity. And with a simple act of kindness, and all of you, our lives, our little girls lives, have changed for the better! In three days, we have more than a chance. We feel so blessed by all of you! Your kindness, your love, for us, absolute strangers is just amazing! We're overwhelmed. We are beyond grateful! We feel completely surrounded by love. To know that there are other people in this world that know our struggles, who have been where we are now, is beyond anything we could have imagined! Our gratitude knows no bounds! We thank you all! For your love, your kindness, your generosity! For keeping this Wolf pack together and safe! You all hold a special place in our hearts! And once we are settled, you are all welcome in our home!  Thank you again!
With love,
Anya, John, Anniah and Grace
