I know that for some this topic will be too difficult to read. I am sorry. I do not know your pain because I have not lived through the loss of a child. However, I am posting because many of my friends and family have. I want to bring an amazing non-profit to your attention! I know that some of you may or may not agree with this. Please keep comments kind and understanding for those who need this more than anything.
Thank you Anna for sharing your sweet picture!

The name of the group is Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep. They offer moms whose babies are “born sleeping” professional photographs of their baby. For most of these moms this will be the only picture they will ever have. They do a beautiful job of tactfully photographing these babies. I was very impressed.
One of our very sweet readers alerted me to this group. She used their services in the past and posted a beautiful slideshow. It brought tears to my eyes and a fresh perspective to my heart. They were some of the most amazing and beautiful pictures I have ever seen. She told me that these photos are her special keepsake of her sweet baby.
