Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep
From the national website:
“Dear Family, Friends and Web Site Visitors,
We have been given a gift by the parents who invite us to photograph their children. With this project, we are creating some of our most powerful images, and that is because parents allow us to share in their love of their precious gifts. We all come away from this experience profoundly changed . . . Here are parents who know their children have died or are going to die, they have opened their hearts to complete strangers, and they have taken the time to share their child with us, and you, the world. They share with us the joy of being parents, even knowing that joy was so fleeting. We believe this is the purpose of Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation, Remembrance Photography – to touch people’s lives and to be touched by them in return.
So, to all parents, we thank you with all our hearts for sharing the gift of your precious children and allowing us into your lives and the life of your child.
With Healing, Hope and Honor,
All of us at The Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation”
Photographers are currently providing this gift at hospitals throughout Maine, including Maine Medical Center in Portland, and Central Maine Medical Center and St. Mary’s in Lewiston.
