Please, help restore life to our daughter and her family! On September 14th, Hurricane Odile raced up the Cabo corridor, leaving their home unlivable and very damaged!!! More ...

After the longest night of their lives, it was safe to come out of hiding and assess the damages. Upstairs - one window remained. Three sliders and all other windows shattered. Much of the furniture is damaged. The couch went out a window and ended up in the front yard. The girls toys, pictures, and most everything is water, shattered glass, or wind damaged. Air conditioners hanging and satellite gone. No insurance! The following days were filled with shock. So many mosquito bites and no way to sleep in the hot, humid house with no protection.

Finally,Brooke, Lauren (six), and Savannah (two) were able to get to the airport several days later, catching an evacuation flight to Guadalajuara, where $1400.00 took them into Seattle. It was one long day! I managed to hold back the tears when I picked them up, but looking at the three of them, it was so obvious they were exhasted and had been through something unknown to most. :( Tim was able to leave a week later, after finding boards to secure most of the house.

Savannah has cerebral palsy and needs to be back in her home where, things are familiar. She has not been sleeping and won't let her parents out of her site. Lauren has had nightmares and wakes up crying most nights. I heard footsteps upstairs and found her on the floor, cuddled up next to a chair crying. My heart broke!

When power is back, Tim will head down to see about beginning the repairs! He will be accompanied by a few family members that have offered to help. San diego first, shuttle to Tiajuana, flight to LaPaz, bus to Cabo and then a friend for pick up to home in San Jose.

Humbly, I ask for a $5.00 - $20.00 donation to help get them back into their home!  I know times are hard for most of us and I don't want to take anything away from anyone. Helping to forward this on to your friends and family would mean so much. Thank you all so much and God bless! Wayne and Pam
