  • Disneyland saved our lives

    Did Someone Do This on Purpose? | NBC San Diego

    There was some sort of fight in the alley next to our house and our trash can ended up on fire which spread to the porch and house. Neighbors called the Fire department who arrived 6 minutes later and had it out in another 10. It only took minutes for the front of the house to become engulfed. The room right next to the trashcan was where Max and Belle would have been sleeping. You can see whats left of her crib in one of the pictures.

    It has been a very long week of sorting through what was left and salvaging what we could. We were able to salvage more than we originally thought, but I think we will eventually toss half of it. Sifting through the remnants of the kids room and living room, part of which had been strewn across the side yard(which belongs to a neighbor) when the fire department was fighting the fire, you would only imagine the thoughts running through my head. The material loss will never be as important as the human life that was not lost, but is still hard to cope with. My husband is an avid toy collector and many expensive action figures are now lumps of melted plastic. Our 2 large fresh water fish tanks, filled with fishies, froggies and crabs, 2 entire ecosystems demolished. We did save one fish and 3 crabs that managed to survive out of 40.

    We thankfully have a friend who took us in and the kids do not even know what happened. We are trying to keep things as normal as we can for them. We will be eternally grateful for the outpouring of love, kindness and generosity that has come our way in this time of need.

    I never thought I would be able to say that Disneyland saved our lives.

            Marci, I'm so sorry you are having to go through this. Thank goodness you were a the resort and not at home, and it is so good that your babies don't have to see this and have those images in their minds.

            Our thoughts are with all of you. :love:

              :squeeze: Seeing those pictures makes it even more real... I am so sad for everything you guys have lost. I cannot even imagine... but I am so SO glad that you all are safe and that the kids don't know anything about it.... I wish you the best of luck in rebuilding and finding a new permanent place to live.
              Good morning, son
              In twenty years from now
              Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
              And I can tell you 'bout today
              And how I picked you up and everything changed
              It was pain
              Sunny days and rain
              I knew you'd feel the same things...

                    It breaks my heart Marci that some jerks would start a fire and not care that they could have destroyed precious lives. I hope that they will be caught. I am grateful that you were at Disneyland that you are all OK. You deserve great things.

                      So Sad!!! But, I'm so glad to hear that nobody was hurt (except for the fishies). I wish you the best in getting everything restored and back to normal.

                          Way to keep a positive attitude. I'd be devestated. Let us know if you need anything at all!
