Jake and Chelsea

As many of you know Jake and Chelsea were planning on great things with a new baby on way and purchasing a new home.  On July 17, 2017 the unexpected happened and Baby Kaia was born by emergency c-section and Chelsea has been fighting for her life ever since.  Jake and Chelsea just purchased a home on the Friday before this occurred and were planning on starting their new family in their new home.  

Chelsea continues to improve every day at Penn Presbyterian Hospital and hopefully soon will be able to meet her beautiful baby Kaia for the first time.   Jake and Baby Kaia are hanging in there without Chelsea's everyday presence.  With Chelsea in hospital and baby Kaia at home Jake will be taking FMLA until Chelsea comes home.  

I have had many people reach out to me to see how they can help with things while this is happening.  If you know us, you know we do not like to ask for anything but I know he needs the help right now so that he can focus on the baby and Chelsea without worrying about how he is going to pay his bills.  Jake will be taking FMLA to spend time at hospital and learning how to be a new dad to Kaia so any help would be greatly appreciated to help this young family that started in quite possibly the most horrific manner survive until Mommy is home to make them complete.
