Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep (NILMDTS)

Trigger Warning – The Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep page shows images that some may find distressing.

NILMDTS trains, educates, and mobilizes professional quality photographers to provide beautiful heirloom portraits to families facing the untimely death of an infant. We believe these images serve as an important step in the family’s healing process by honoring the child’s legacy.

Knots of Love

Our mission at Knots of Love is to warm the hearts and heads of those experiencing traumatic hair loss.  Our volunteers lovingly hand-knit and crochet caps for those struggling with treatment-induced hair loss and tiny Neonatal blankets for fragile new lives in incubators.  We want our caps and blankets to be a constant reminder to the patient and their loved ones that they are not alone.  Our creations are distributed free of charge to hospitals and treatment centers throughout the country.
