Simple thing I want to be able to take some time off to help my girlfriend after she gives birth. I want her to be able to heal and be well rested and our soon to be daughter (due Nov 8th) to be healthy and cared for before I return to work. I apparently don't get paternity leave at my job but I can take an unpaid leave of absence. I'm out of pto so I'm a little screwed on all of this as I used it to take her to appointments and what not. Any help we receive will be going directly to bills, food, and rent judt to ensure that we don't fall behind. Any help would be appreciated and be doing our newborn a huge service. Thank you all in advance for what ever you can do in these super tough times. Cute pictures will show up eventually!
