As many of you know, I am an affiliated photographer with Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, an organization in which photographers donate their time to families who don't get to take their babies home from the hospital.
As both my children spent precious time in the NICU, one being very touch and go for a while, this is a cause that is near and dear to my heart.
Please don't misunderstand, this is a very, very hard thing to do. People often ask me, "How do you not just cry through the whole thing". Umm I do. I cry the whole drive to the hospital and silently cry throughout the session. However, I firmly believe that God lifts the burden from my heart upon leaving the session. Otherwise, there is absolutely no way I could continue doing this.
OK, here's where we need your help, there are only 5 photographers in the Kentuckiana area who have agreed to give their time and talents to this organization, with a combined population of over 1 million people, it's just not working. All 5 of us have families, jobs and other outside commitments. We need some more people. BAD!
The area coordinator, Courtney Lambert, has posted some more information over on her blog, please visit her blog and look to your heart, your God, wherever and see if this is a cause you can help!
