Sharon Pitmon, right, sits on the couch in the living room of her family's new home as her children (from left) David Gladden, Deasia Gladden, niece Uzziah Hall and daughter Teonna Gladden watch TV Saturday afternoon. Pitmon's home and belongings were destroyed in a house fire in late November, and some of the children had to escape out a window and off the porch roof.
