Way to go Newsweek! an excellent article

There is a fantastic article in the Newsweek magazine on coming out next week, Februray 9. (EDITED TO CHANGE THE DATE! SORRY!) The article is called A Vast and Sudden Sadness and is about stillbirth and the use of photography to help cope with grief. For a sneak peek, click here

It also features a sidebar specifically about Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep- a wonderful service. How I wish I had known about this photography service when Gabriel was born. Professional photographers volunteer their time and talent to take photos for families in that so short time they have with their babies. You can read this sidebar article here

Awesome! It's always good when more sources 'get the word out' on topics such as this!

NILMD is why I have pictures of Kenner. If it was not for them I would have a few cell phone pictures of him. Thank you for sharing this with all of us Emily.

What a wonderful organization. Kudos to the volunteers who capture images that may otherwise just become memories.

I love this origanization. I actually have over and over again told the hospital Ryan was at about these people. And believe it or not they have issues with calling the photographers. Go figure. I wish I knew about them when Ryan was still here.
