On August 9th, Charles (Charlie) John Schaab III was born at St. John's Hospital in Springfield, Il. He was ready to make his mark on the world over two months early. Jen started feeling sick and was rushed by helicopter to St. John's being diagnosed with HELLP syndrome from severe pre-eclampsia.
Both Jennifer and Baby Charlie are doing great now. However, Charlie will need to stay in the NICU for several months.
PLEASE consider donating to support the family and Baby Charlie as they begin their long journey. Donations will be used to alleviate travel costs back and forth from Decatur, medical bills and baby supplies not yet purchased before his early arrival.
