Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep pictures


Here are pictures & a slideshow from Sandy Allen, the photographer that was there for me taking pictures when William was born. She works with the organization, Now I Lay me Down to Sleep – she was awesome. These pictures are all great. I do warn you that you will see all the emotions that we had during the delivery – so crying may happen. You will not see anything graphic, but you will see my bare thigh (you may not even notice) and the top part of my breast – just wanted to warn you. There are pictures of William of course. Sandy touched up the discoloration on his face so he does look different from the pictures some of you have seen already. She is sending me a CD with all the pictures & slideshow on them, so I can make copies of any of them if any of you would like. I also have pictures on Snapfish from Samantha & Crystal’s cameras if you would like to see those please email me back so I can give you access to see them.

Slideshow – has songs, so you may want to turn music off if you are at work.

Love to all,



  1. Sara, Just found your blog and I am so touched by your strength to carry on in the midst of such challenges. You will be in my thoughts and prayers from this moment forward. I too am carrying a baby boy with anencephaly and know all to well the devastation that that diagnosis brings. But to have that in your So just know that you have touched my heart with your story.

    BTW, I think William is perfectly handsome!! I love the slide show. Wonderfully done!
