Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep

I attended a seminar last night and part of the money from our registration fee goes to support this non-profit organization. I was inspired to contact them this morning and ask to please be one of their volunteer photographers. I cannot imagine how difficult this will be, but these people are dealing with a lifetime of pain, so I can push through comfort level.

About a month before Trinity was born, my BIL and his girlfriend had twin girls. They were about 5 weeks premature and there were other pregnancy complications which caused them to be transported to Children's Hospital in Minneapolis. One of the girls grew stronger and unfortunately a couple days after our daughter was born my BIL lost one of his girls. The hospital took some pictures, and I give them so much credit for that. However, as a professional photographer I can grab the emotion and love that is in that room. We will always cherish Veronica just a little more, because we know how close we came to losing her too and we will never forget Riley who was a fighter to the end.
