Sometimes you meet people who come into your life and don't really make a mark. Then there are people who command attention by just standing still. That is my friend Jennifer. She is this tiny woman with the force of the incredible hulk. Jennifer has run marathons, proposed to her beloved Pedro via a television show while he was stationed in Iraq, and kicked my rear during a bootcamp we did with some fellow moms (& forever friends). Pedro fought for our country in Iraq along side thousands of other soldiers in the US ARMY. He and Jen have two beautiful children, Pj (7) and Alyssa (3). These kids have smiles that light up the room just like their mother. Hurricane Sandy came along and temporarily took those smiles away. Everything Jennifer and Pedro worked to achieve was washed away. It very nearly took Pedro with it. But he {along with a friend who had gone to help secure the house} fought to get back to his family. Please donate what ever you can to help this family get back on their feet. Anything and everything helps. This family means the world to me and a lot of people. Help them create some new memories.
Thank You.

We are as settled as we can be in a temporary apartment.  Trying to get through each day hoping for more news on our financial fate.  We are hopefully that there can be better days ahead, although every day is a challenge.  Thanks to each of you for your love and support.  Without all of you, we'd be lost.  You are in our thoughts today and always.

As of last night Jen ,Peter and the kids have found a place to live. I was with them to start there new beginning last night as we moved all of the things people have been so generously donating to them and the few things they were able to salvage out of there home as Jen said last night "Wow it's easy to move when your biggest piece of furniture is an air mattress in a box" and then laughed. It is a very nice 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bath with a basement and garage a deck and backyard for the kids and phoebe to play in. As Peter put it last night in his own words "It's no Kissam ave but its  just fine for now" . It might not be the  "home" they have had for the last 6 years but it is "HOME" for now because they are all together. Thank you to everyone who has donated anything you could to them they are very humbled by everyone's generosity and thoughtfulness. And I want to personally thank everyone for everything that they have done to make sure they all have a roof over there heads (Melissa and Timmy for opening there home)  and all the things they are going to need to begin there new journey together!

An Update from Jen & Peter:

<font color="#333333" face="lucida grande, tahoma, verdana, arial, sans-serif" size="2">We are overwhelmed by the amazing generosity and love from our friends, family and even though we have never met. Thank you is not a strong enough statement. We could not make it through this without each one of you. We are currently looking for housing and will hopefully have an apartment for at least a month. This will give us time to figure out where we go from here. I honestly have no idea what tomorrow brings, but I know we are not alone. My house was ripped off the foundation and I may not have an address today, but I know it will get better every day. As much as I want to break down and give up, I know each of you is invested in our future now. For that and my babies, I will go on.</font>

As of this morning, (11/2/12), Jen and Pedro have been able to salvage a few memories from the debris. Jen's racing medals, a few pictures, and some irrelacable memories were thankfully found and survived the water. Coming up they are looking for temporary housing and are very grateful for the out pouring of help. Every donation of money, clothes, and basic household items is appreciated. Thank you.
