Posted: Updated:
Calhoun, GA -

"The two girls, this is their room here..." said Amy Delaney as showed what is left of her home, in Calhoun, after a fire destroyed it several days ago.

"The oxygen bottles...once they got hot, the majority of them exploded, and that is why the house went so quickly," Delaney added.

All six of her children have special medical needs. She adopted them from the foster care system, where many were born in to troubled homes.

"They have completed our life, my husband and I could not have any children together," Delaney said.

Rachel Stockman, reporting: "We met them at a park, because seeing the home now is traumatic for them."

"I don't have my favorite book...and they break down and cry a little bit...we are choosing to keep them away from the house..." Delaney said.

Inside the home, burned out medical supplies, toys, basically everything they owned:

We lost everything

Toiletries groceries, we are starting basics... once we do that we can feel more stable and secure

But Belaney says, it the community keeping them together:

It says thank you god reminder... that the love of a community means more than anything we have"

This could have been do so much worse for our family if we had endure a tragedy and we did not

No word on what caused the fire, but it is not suspicious.
