The actress, who is well-known for playing the role of Amelia Shepherd, also appreciated her friends and neighbors for their support in getting her through the difficult period.

"Heartbreakingly, we lost all four of our pets," she added.
She also wrote how the community helped her family out in the dire times, "What we learned is that the only thing that matters are the people (and beings) that you love. The only thing that matters is community. We would not be here without it, and we are so grateful." Continuing to express her gratitude for the safety of her family she said, "This is not a post about a fire. This is a post about community. This is a love letter to the incredible people that showed up and the incredible ways that they did. Thank you to the firefighters and the investigators (thank you, Trey!)" she wrote.
"Thank you to my neighbor who answered our frantic knocks at her door. Thank you to the parents at my kids' school who sent toys and books, my friends at @greysabc and @shondaland, who sent clothing and supplies, and my sisters who flew in to handle logistics so that I could be with my kids. Thank you to my team, who made everything easier," the actor said while experiencing the pain of losing her home and dear pets.
