Baby Levi's New Home

As many of you know Ligeia (my beautiful daughter) went into labor at 24 weeks into her pregnancy (we don't know why) and delivered precious Levi at 25 weeks. He was 1 lb 8 ozs and faced quite an uphill battle. Ligeia and Jason are amazing parents and spend most of their time at the hospital with Levi. Ligeia had to leave her job, that she loved, at the daycare and is not going to be able to return due to Levi being unable to be in daycare his first year of life.
As you can guess, life has been more than a little stressful, but they have received so much love and support from family and friends. The NICU staff at the hospital have been amazing.
Levi has been diagnosed with chronic lung disease and he is responding well to treatments currently, but he is going to need a lot of care for at least the next year of his life. There is a possibility that he will need in-home nursing care when he leaves the NICU.
Which led to a predicament for the family; Ligeia, Jason and their daughters are currently living in a 1 bedroom apartment and they were searching for a larger place before Levi was supposed to come in July. They haven't had time to think of moving or searching, but through some great people an opportunity has come. A  2 bedroom apartment is available for them immediately due to these very kind folks. Unfortunately the deadline was missed to give notice to the current apartment and they must come up with double rent. Which led us to gofundme.
I decided to start a gofundme to help Ligeia and Jason be relieved of some financial stress. Any little bit of help is appreciated. The money will go directly to cover the double rent for the month of July. It is going to assist this beautiful family to move to a nice place. A place where Levi (and his nurse if that happens) can have a space as well as Ligeia and Jason and the girls.
Thank you so much for the continued love, support and prayers.
