Join us in the efforts to help with the medical and everyday living expenses that baby Liam and family will need in the coming weeks and months until sweet Liam finally goes home.

Just 35 days ago Lindsay and Steve got the wonderful news that they were expecting a beautiful baby boy! Lindsay started buying oodles and oodles of cute little blue outfits and Steve was already dreaming of teaching him how to play ball someday. Steve and Lindsay were beginning to collect all of the things that babies need and Lindsay's tummy was growing everyday keeping baby boy warm and cozy!

As we all know summer comes to an end on Labor day, and Steve and Lindsay were taking full advantage of their last summer weekend at the cabin with family. After a relaxing first night at the cabin Lindsay and Steve had to end their weekend early...

Meet Liam Robert Asp;

Yes, Liam Robert Asp arrived too soon to Steve and Lindsay on Saturday 9/1/12. Saturday morning while relaxing at the cabin Lindsay started to feel flu like but didn't really know if it was the flu or something else. Eric, Lindsays's dad (OBGYN Doctor) told Lindsay with the symptoms she was having that it was important that they go back to the cities right away. They got into the car and rushed back to the cities as soon as possible.

After arriving at the hospital Steve and Lindsay soon learned their lives were possibly going to change sooner than they expected. Lindsay says, within 20 minutes our picture perfect pregnancy turned into a "we will do the best we can to save your baby" pregnancy. The doctors immediately tried to slow down the labor with various medications to try and buy as much time as possible to keep precious Liam in Lindsay's belly as long as they could, but by 7PM Saturday night they nothing was working to slow the labor down and Lindsay was prepped for delivering the baby.

Liam Robert Asp was born Saturday 9/1/12 at 8:19PM weighing 2lbs 2 oz, 14 inches long and just 26 weeks old. Despite the odds, Liam is doing amazing and proving he truly is a STRONG fighter like his name means. After just 24 hours of life Liam is beating the odds and his doctors are very hopeful for his growth and development.

Proud new parents Steve and Lindsay are doing as well as they can be right now considering. As any new parents are they are very overwhelmed with everything that has just happened to them and the long journey ahead to bringing their sweet little boy home. Lindsay says they are holding strong and fighting right alongside their dear little Liam.

Lindsay will be released from the hospital sometime Monday in the later afternoon. I will continue to keep Liam's page updated as I receive them from Steve and Lindsay. Please keep baby Liam, Steve and Lindsay in your thoughts and prayers.
