Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep

A friend of mine lost a baby last week. Jocelyn returned to live with her Heavenly Father just a few days shy of her due date.  Through this experience I have been reminded of what amazing friends I have and how thankful I am for the belief in eternal families.

I have also become aware of an inspiring organization called Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep.  This is an organization that is made up of volunteer professional photographers that create priceless memories for the families of these sweet babies.  I can't think of a greater gift someone could give at a time like this.  I wish that my photography skills were more than just a hobby, I would love to be part of this organization.

Wow Amy. I almost didn't look at this because I knew what would happen. I'm glad I did watch it. I know someone who had pictures done and I thought that would be so sad, but it's so true. You have memories of that baby you carried who was alive and a part of you and your story. Thanks for sharing. I am so sorry for your friend.

I'm bawling! I'm so thankful for this organization. I know that if that ever happened to me I would want those pictures.
