Help Me Be With My Son!

Hello! On May 1, my wife gave birth to our son, Stanley. He is absolutely adorable. He was also a month early. I'd been working to make arrangements for the month of June, but the reality is this - my job is awesome, and they're allowing me paternal leave, but it isn't paid. The fact that he arrived in May has thrown things off even further.

I'm hoping to raise enough money to cover one month of regular pay. In doing so, I'll be able to spend time at home, with my child, supporting my wife, doing all the things I believe a father is supposed to do. Plus, getting to know the little guy! He seems pretty cool!

Thank you for your support. It means the world to my family.
