Good night, sweet prince: And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest...
-William Shakespeare


It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.

Wonderful People...

Did anyone see the Today Show today? There was a story about Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep. It is very touching. I wish when William was born I had known about these people. I found out about them when it was too late. I support them all the way! I think the work they do is awesome and I hope that more people are aware that they exist. Please take a look at the video, it was too large to load so you'll have to follow the link.

well. I'm supposed to be paying bills, and now I'm sobbing. I wish wish wish I had known about these people. Turns out there are a multitude in my area! I have half a mind to take the list to my OB at the next visit, and send the list to children's. Thanks for this.

Firstly I wanted to thank you for your comment and encouragment! Thanks.

I went to your other Blog, and ended up sobbing my heart out. I am so sorry for your suffering.

I watched it online. Nothing like a good cry. I think my hospital offered me this, and we were so horrified at the time, that we said no. Now I wish we had let them do it.

I couldn't, for some reason get the link (my weird computer?!). But, I googled and found their website. Beautiful pictures! We actually had an organization that came in to take pics of us with Salvatore and I treasure those pictures.

I think the whole photo thing is SO important! I love it when mums feel they can share their photos. As sad as they are I could look at all the beautiful bubs for hours. We took hundreds of photos in the 2 days Zak was alive and Im so so so happy we did. I even carry some in my handbag and have been known to show total strangers in the street! (Ok so thats a little weird I know lol)

I watched the story and have added it to my blog as well as a link to yours. (Hope you don't mind) i did have a big ugly cry and felt sick for the poor couple but so happy they were able to get beautiful photos.

Hugs

Amy,
We had a photographer from NILMDTS when Joseph was born. I cannot say enough good things about them or the photographers who donate their time and resources. It is surprising how many hospitals are unaware of them.
