A Charity You Need to Know
I believe passions should be shared. I also believe photography can heal. Ya know that photo of a loved one that has passed? Every time you look at it, you can’t help but smile at the memories. Some only get a short time with their little treasure. Some little ones change our lives without ever taking a breath this side of Heaven. I was blessed briefly with one of these souls.
Sometimes the way other people react or things they say can cause even greater pain. It is as if we should just pick ourselves up and move on. It can be hard because we know this little life existed. We can’t forget how this child changed our life as all children do. This is where Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep comes in.
I have been accepted as one of their photographers. I could not be more honored! I want to leave a legacy for that family saying, “Yes, this child did exist and he/she is beautiful.” I know it will be tough. Greatness does not come from our comfort zone. We cannot make this a better world by merely sitting on the couch, in our own little bubble. We have to get out and meet people exactly where they are; showing love and kindness. This is my very small piece of contributing to the world.
Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep goes into the hospital and takes professional, quality photos of a baby who either was still born or died shortly after birth. The families get beautiful images of their loved one to cherish forever. You can go to their site and search for a photographer in your area if you should ever need their service.
Tell everyone about this organization. You never know that one person who will need it.
