Austin and his wife were expecting a baby that day. He missed work to see the birth of his son. Surprisingly, he received a text message from the company he works, saying: “As of now, you are terminated”.

Austin’s story immediately struck a chord with parents all over the world, prompting one mother, Sara Persechino, to take action and set up a GoFundMe page for Austin.
