Help our family return to normal lives

On the night of March 9, 2013 my family and I woke up to our home engulfed in fire. Thankfully, we managed to escape unharmed, but since then, our lives have been turned upside down and 266 days later, we continue living in the worst aftermath. 

On October 1, 2013, we were allowed to return to our home, however the contents of our home have yet to be replaced, while we wait for our insurance to process that portion of our claim, we are living in an empty home, without furniture, appliances and worse, without heat. As adults, we can continue to wait long as it is necessary, but I cannot continue to make do with my two young sons who are still affected by the trauma of the fire and losing all their belongings and having to live away from home for so long.

We have complied with all that has been asked of us to process our contents replacement and have literally begged the law office working with our case to press for a specified payment date within the next 2 weeks, yet we wake up to the same empty house, reminding us of all we lost in the fire.

I started my petition on with the simple belief that united voices will make a difference. By helping me sign this petition, you will help my 2 young children return to normal lives, with the basics of a home such as appliances to cook their food, refrigerator to keep the milk cold, beds to sleep on and the warmth of a roof over their heads.

Mr. Pizzi, please try to imagine what life has been like for my family and I the months since the fire, dealing with the loss of our home for so long, only to return to a house that doesn't feel like a home and even worse, does not keep my children warm and the days grow colder. Can you please work with me to process the content replacement funds that will help get our possessions back in our house so we can start re-building our lives?
