About 2mths after losing Mamie my very good friend Crystal Goss called me to see if we could help her out. She and her husband had been chosen to be the March of Dimes Ambassador Family of 2009 for Arkansas. Crystal for all of you that don't know is an amazing photographer. After having her first child Brayson 2 months early and spending months in the UAMS nicu she decided she needed to give back. She not only became involved in the March of Dimes but also Know I Lay Me Down to Sleep. Donating her time to document those precious moments for families to hold on to. When we found out Mamie had died Britney new exactly who she needed to call. Me being a photographer myself I knew pictures were a must and having Crystal there not only as a friend but also as a photographer capturing those moments meant the world to us. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have those picture. I feel like I could never repay Crystal for everything she did that day. When she called to see if we would be willing to tell our story I knew it was my time to give back and help spread awareness. The video was actually sent to me back in November and I have only watched it once. It is extremely touching but it is also hard for me to see myself and Taylor sitting there telling what happened. I have been wanting to share this video with you all for a long time know so here it is. Joshua Smith did an amazing job putting this together. It blew me away!You might want to click play and then pause and let the video load all the way before starting.
Thank you Crystal for everything you have done for us. You are truly a blessing to us and I am so thankful for your friendship. I decided right after we had Mamie that donating my time and gift of photography was what I needed to do. I am extremely excited. It has taken me 7mths to actually move forward in this process but I believe I am ready.
I hope you all have a wonderful day.
