Jon, our two toddler sons, and I moved into our first home late in September, excited to start our adventures in homeownership. Like most people, we had a thorough inspection completed on the home. Less than three weeks after moving in, the house flooded. A plumber came out and sourced the issue: tree roots in the sewer lines. Less then a month later, the house flooded again.  This time, a camera snaked through the lines revealed a 20 foot belly in the sewer lines leading away from our home. The several estimates we have received for repair are far higher than what we have in our reserve.  We are enlisting the help and kindness of our friends and family at this time to help us return to livable conditions.

A temporary fix is in place, and we have running water for the time being. Until we are able to replace the sewer lines, we could experience a flood again at any time. We are trying to raise quick funds to replace the lines so that we can have our first Christmas in our house. Please consider donating to help us rebuild the sewer lines so we can run water, launder our babies' diapers, and wash dishes.

We sincerely appreciate anything you can give to help us.  As avid volunteers in the community, we promise to pay back with our time.  Please know that it is difficult to ask for help, and that we cannot thank you enough for your support!
