I wish I could sleep for a year straight

Then this all would be far behind me. This has been the worst 3 days of my life I think. My half brother was killed in what we were told was a home invasion. He was in his 20s. He was a single dad. He left behind a 2 year old and 2 month old. My mom is taking them in but since everything was stolen from their house she is searching for clothes, beds, car seats and everything else for them. I feel like the sky opened up and crapped on me. Next to my partner he was my best friend. He stood up with me at my wedding. I will forever miss him. Now we have to figure out how to tell his son he is gone. He was a good man gone to soon. Thanks for reading it feels good to get it all out somewhere instead of just keeping it bottled up.

Oh My Lord! I am so sorry for your loss and for his children! 

Facebook is amazing for things like that. If you reach out to just your friends it becomes viral and people love to give and help with things they have just stored somewhere. At this point in time take the help. It will get them through the immediate panic and you can pay it forward down the line. There is always going to be someone else somewhere in life that will be needing help, it'll be your (and your mom's) turn to pay it forward then.

Thanks for the advice. We did something similar on craigslist and were given a crib, and some diapers. But I do understand times are hard for everyone right now. I was told by a few family friends to make wish lists at a few stores online so people can see what they need. Hoping that works well also.

I understand the situation you are in. I was in a similar one before and received alot of help from people in my community. Most I didn't even know.So I would like to help you to pay that forward. If the wishlists are online can you post the links so we can see?
