Littlest Heroes Project

Yesterday as I was wondering through some blogs, I found a little girl who suffers from Chiari Malformation and a few other conditions. I was curious and started to read. Her mom had something interesting on her side bar "Littlest Heroes Project" so I clicked it and I came across this:

"The Littlest Heroes Project is a non-profit based organization founded in January 2008, made up of professional photographers nationwide that provide free photo sessions to our nations Littlest Heroes. This is our way of giving back and taking a stand for these children who sometimes feel forgotten because of their illnesses. We are here to let them know that they are heroes to many, and to share their inspirational stories and photos with the world."

I was so touch. The tears slowly ran down my face. It's truly a gift that there are people out there wanting to donate their time, and energy, to families who think twice about photography either because they don't have time, they don't have money to pay a professional, or that they have lost a child.
I read a little more into the story behind LHP and I decided to apply. This morning, my application was accepted and we will wait to here from a photographer.

If you can handle shedding a few tears today, click on the link below to see the most beautiful pictures in the world! Thanks Mylee for introducing me to this project.

Ok, so I just watched the video and my heart is so touched. My eyes are swelled up with tears and I am going to go hug each of my kids.

What a wonderful site and a great oppertunity for families of children with special needs. I have a severley autistic son, who is now 4 & 1/2 years old and we just took him with my other children for Christmas pictures and it took us almost two hours to get him to sit. And I was very grateful to the man who was able to snap his picture. We were able to get one of him by himself and another with his siblings, but holding a bottle of hand sanitizer. (anything that has a scent is very comforting to him). I have applied for this service (thank you so much). Hopefully we will qualify.
