Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep: Photographing The Precious Life Of the Unborn (Pt. 2)

If you need context please read this post.

Well, it is 4:03am in Atlanta and I haven’t seen the family yet.  The reason?  We are waiting for the call to let us know it is time to head down to the hospital from the family.  Earlier today at the hospital the doctors said that it may take up to 6 hours after officially inducing the labor for her to have the child.  The only problem is that we don’t know when the doctor is going to do so.  (the original plan was to start around 6-7pm) Hopefully, I will be able to still photograph the family.  It’s hard when you are want to give a gift to a family in which you have to be there to give it but not knowing or even how to schedule your day, sleep, and other responsibilities around their needs.

I’ll keep you posted.

    I am so honored to be an affiliate of NILMDTS here in Minneapolis.
    This is my 3rd year as an affiliate and I’m rounding the corner on my first full year as a hospital coordinator. People don’t always understand it…my husband even worries from time to time that I should back off but I know that my heart wouldn’t be as full as it is without serving these families with the memories to last a lifetime and beyond. I have mad life long friends with some of the families and I know that is God at work…so bless you for your involvement in NILMDTS. It’s the most rewarding thing that I do and I love that you are sharing if here and on twitter…thank you.

    Minneapolis Children’s & Methodist Hospital Coordinator
