Infant Remembrance Photography . . . Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep.

I am fortunate to serve as Carroll County’s area coordinator for this national infant remembrance program.

For those of us who have lost loved ones, this program is a blessing. Furthermore, in Carroll County, we have a cadre of incredible professional photographers willing to donate their time and expertise to comfort a grieving family with keepsake photography. Please understand that the photography remembrance sessions are a gift. There is no monetary exchange at any time.

Please read on, and consider supporting this worthwhile program.

Thanks for your consideration,

Kathy

With the Month of October being recognized as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, The Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep Foundation holds its Annual Fund Drivefor six weeks starting in mid-September and ending in October. 
 
President Ronald Reagan enacted Proclamation 5890 in October of 1988 to recognize that each year, approximately a million pregnancies in the United States alone end in miscarriage, stillbirth, or the death of a newborn child.  Reagan stated, “A national observance offers us the opportunity to increase our understanding of the great tragedy involved in the deaths of unborn or newborn babies.  It also enables us to consider how, as individuals and communities, we can meet the needs of bereaved parents and family members… ”  To read the full Proclamation signed by Reagan,CLICK HERE.   

 
If you are in a place to make even a small contribution to NILMDTS, please know that doing so will continue to allow the organization to provide improved resources, training, communication, and other tools necessary in support of our amazing contingent of professional photographers who provide the gift of free remembrance portraiture to families in need.
 
Our next project we are working on is an online, interactive webinar version of our Formal NILMDTS Training taught by Co-Founder Sandy Puc’ allowing anyone in any country with access to a computer to complete the course online.  Donations help make programs like this a reality!
