"Our beautiful baby girl"

Ericka, NSW

"Our newest addition is building a new home. We lost our home of 14 years at Malua Bay in the bushfires on NYE & my parents lost 2 properties in 2 different locations, 2 hrs apart. What are the chances?! This included a farm on 2000 acres where I grew up along with 2 houses, 3 sheds, all fencing, machinery, stockyards, 150 head of cattle, 50 years of blood, sweat & tears & found their good mate & neighbour of 50 years burned alive in his car, an image they’ll never forget. Within our family combined we have lost so much & sadly with all this devastation only one of the home’s was insured due to my dad burying his last 2 family members & the stress of the drought, it slipped his mind. We are all traumatised especially the kids, we got out with only what we were wearing. I miss our photos, my wedding rings & dress I was going to give my daughter, my pops war medals & nanas jewellery & mostly my 3 kids baby items & memorabilia. My parents who were trapped for days in a fire shed at Belowra, holding the walls up & hosing from the inside thought their time was up, we didn’t even know if they were alive for 3 days & we lost our home also knowing this. We want to build a home big enough for the 7 of us on our acreage at Malua Bay. My parents are 65 & 70 & are too old to start over. We are currently renting a holiday home but can’t afford this long term so after winter will be setting up camp on our property. We like Hotondo’s plans & we would be so incredibly grateful for any prize won. We have all worked our whole lives; my dad is a farmer & volunteer firefighter & still drives 3 hrs every day to feed the remaining cattle. My husband works full time & I’m casually employed at the hospital & am unable to work full time due to having 13 surgeries from a chronic disease. We promised the kids a new dog when we rebuild so that would also be a new addition. Please please consider us 🙏 I will email some pictures for you to show you just how badly we were affected, we are losing hope please help us."
