More of Isaac

Yesterday we got the pictures and slideshow from Sheila, the Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep photographer. I can't believe how wonderful the pictures are. And the slideshow...just get the tissues. I'm including some info about the song used in the slideshow, "Smallest Wingless." For those of us who just went through this and for those of you who've lost a child, this song will break your heart. Every word is true.


From Craig Cardiff's website:
The song 'Smallest Wingless' paints two parents welcoming a newborn into the world, only to be told that the child is sick, and will only survive a few hours. "The premise for this song came from a friend who is a photographer volunteering with the organization www.nowilaymedowntosleep.org and hearing her stories about what parents went through." Stark lyrics (sadness is just loved wasted, with no little heart to put it inside) are beautifully framed by piano and string quartet.
