MENTOR, Ohio - A family is reunited and beginning to heal after an alleged drunken driver drove into their Mentor home last month.
"I basically felt that God was on our side," said Tonya Blare.
Blare, her fiancé Christopher Lukasiewicz and the couple's two children, 3-year-old Christopher and daughter Cassie, are temporarily staying at a friend's home.
The holidays were a difficult time for the family but they are thankful that they are getting better and healthier.
"Every time I think about it, my son and everything else, it's a miracle that everyone is alive,"said Christopher Lukasiewicz.
The Mentor community has donated clothes, gifts and money. A family friend has given them a place to stay until they find a temporary home. The family is grateful.
"The community, family and friends have been so awesome, we want to thank everybody because without people donating money my family would not be able to survive," said Blare.
Three generations of Tonya Blare's family have lived in the house and they hope to rebuild. If you would like to help the family, donations to the Blare & Lukasiewicz Fund at any Huntington Bank.
