We love you, Steve!

As challenging it is to live and work overseas, the professional and personal rewards that come with life overseas are remarkable.  Steve met the love of his life in Korea and they had a beautiful life together with a 3 year old son and another on the way.  In the early morning hours of June 23rd, Steve's wife Seulgi passed away from complications during the birth of their second son.  

Seulgi was a strong, beautiful woman who loved life, her partner, her son Ryan, and was so excited to meet her baby, Aiden.  

In the course of just a few hours, Steve went from excited, soon-to-be father of two beautiful boys with his soulmate by his side, to a man, lost in the dark faced with picking up the broken pieces of his shattered life.  

When I asked him, Steve was hesitant to let me set this gofundme up, because for those that know him, we know that while he offers help so freely to others, he never asks for help for himself.  

The funds will be used for funeral expenses, medical bills for his new son who is in the NICU, and Steve will get every penny of the donations to help him as he pieces his life back together.  

Let's show Steve how much we care for him and Ryan and his new son, Aiden.

Steve, we love you, we're here for you, our hearts break for you, we cry with you.
