When we lost our baby boy, we had no idea where to turn for emotional support and how to get through the myriad of emotions. Yes, we had our family and friends, but they had not experienced what we were going through and did the best they could and were a tremendous source of support.
In the hopes of helping others, we want to share some of the resources that helped shine a light on managing what we were feeling. To this day, we continue to be involved with these organizations as the memory of loss never goes away, and the level of support and inspiration they provide is invaluable.
Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep (NILMDTS) offers the gift of healing, hope and honor to parents experiencing the death of a baby through the overwhelming power of remembrance portraits. Professional-level photographers volunteer their time to conduct an intimate portrait session, capturing the only moments parents spend with their babies. Parents are gifted with delicately retouched heirloom black and white portraits free of charge.
