A Must See Slideshow

This is a must see slideshow!
I am a volunteer photographer with
an organization called
NILMDTS
When babies don't make it, 
the hospital calls me and I go take
pictures so the families will
have high quality portraits of their child.
And - babies don't always make it.
If you have a healthy baby....
or two... or three.... BE THANKFUL!
Babies are gifts from God. 
They are the most precious gifts
you will ever receive. Treasure them
Take care of them. And guide their lives 
in such a way that they will choose
ta path of service to the Lord!

I recently did this session:
video 
And I'm requesting your prayers for this
family. If you have the means to donate
to help them with a memorial service
for their precious daughter,
I ask that you do that, too. 
This is a family who really NEEDS help!
And it will be so appreciated.
The link to contribute is HERE
Feel free to share this on your own
blog also.

  21. Patty - What an awesome ministry the Lord has blessed you with. There are no a lot of people who could do that and do it so gently and lovingly. Prayers for that precious family and their loss.

  22. Patty, what a gift that God has given you to share with others. That was the most amazing video, and the tears fell like rain. Your images will be cherished for their lifetimes...and beyond. A dear friend and his wife gave a baby back to God's arms in April from Potter's Syndrome. My mother gave back my sister and my brother. Praying for the family. I know God has his arms around them so tight, because he also knows the pain of losing a child. He will hold them close until they can stand on their own again, and when they are ready, he will send down the most amazing creature he can create to fill their arms. And this one will be so blessed with parents who will treasure every breath, every word, every step, every hug. Praying for the rest of the family and friends who also feel the loss and who are trying so hard to find the right words and do the best they can to help them conquer the grief that fills their hearts, for they will be the messengers of God to deliver comfort and peace. God bless you, and them. May you always have the heart and the strength in grace to do what you do for parents who have to come home without a child. Hugs- Tete
