So many people have been so generous to us. Thanks to the kindness of Sean’s parents in allowing us to stay with them, we are able to save the majority of our salaries, as well as all the money we’ve been given by our wonderful friends and families. This means that we should have enough money in a few months to get a place to live and replace most of the things we lost. It’s not perfect, but it’s far better than it could have been.

We currently have laptops and an Internet connection, and some of our friends have ordered replacement goodies from the Amazon list. We’re planning to get me a new bicycle at the end of the month. Several people have offered us furniture, and many of them are able to hold on to the pieces until we get a place to live. At this point, due to kind donations and gift cards, we no longer have need of clothes.

If there’s anyone out there who still wants to help in some way (though I really can’t imagine that–we’ve already been given so much), money is probably the best option at this point, because it takes up the least amount of space. However, I still feel funny asking people for money, so the other thing you can do is just wait until we get a house and then buy something from the Amazon list.

We want to thank everyone who has given us gifts. You’ve helped us more than we could ever express. We have just been overwhelmed by the amazing outpouring of love and generosity. Thank you all so much.
