Inspiration: After many hours of sleepless nights thinking about this project it's hard to believe that it is finally coming together! After our situation with Sadie Mae I was prompted in my heart to do something to give back. Not knowing exactly what that was, and still sort of not knowing, I thought better to do something than to do nothing at all. My first thought was a charity event to give back to the March of Dimes which is a great organization that works very hard to prevent premature births. I still plan to support this group and/or our local NICU later this year...but for this project I had an itch to give closer to home.
Charity Details: So the recipient of our Angel's Among Us proceeds will be our local pregnancy care center. It was an easy decision to support the center because they stand for everything that I stand for, life. Seeing Sadie Mae born at 25 weeks almost formless, yet completely a being, grow into a sweet baby who smiles and coos, you can't help but to know deep in your heart that all life is precious.
Celebrate with us, your child's life, while helping others. To book a session call 864.647.2400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
