NILMDTS

Some of you might remember... a while back I posted something about an organization called "Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep."

Imagine my surprise a couple of days ago when I saw THIS STORY on the Today Show.

I cried like a baby through the whole story... but the family in the story just encouraged me to follow my dream even more. I really do want to some day be able to be a part of this organization. Some day.

Just thought someone might find the video clip interesting...

Those of us who have been there can really understand the importance of those moments! I have just started to blog and found you throught the book tag. I know how difficult this time is for you. I will be sending you some positive thoughts!!! The pain never goes away (even after 29 years) but there will be joyous times ahead and you will use your experience to reach out to others like only a person who has been there can!! I look forward to seeing you have your dream come true!

Christina,

I was saddened to read about your loss. Eileen and I are the parents of Olivia from the Today Show story that ran this past week. You sure seem to have a positive outlook. You can read and see more about our Olivia at http://www.lundberg.mn . All the best to you and Ryan!

Wow! What a tearjerker/ inspirational story! I cried all the way through. My husband's best friends are photographers, and they lost their baby brother when he was 10 months old. I am going to show them this clip and see if they would be interested in joining up with the organization in this area. Thanks for sharing!

What an incredible way to help families going through that pain. I think of anybody, you would make a great nilmdts photographer. Thanks for posting that clip.
