After reading Kat's most recent blog post at  Noah's Ark about their experience with Heartfelt it reminded me that i had been meaning to post about their services for quite some time.  I can honestly say "I wish I had known" about their services when Possum was born.

Heartfelt is a volunteer organisation of professional photographers from all over Australia dedicated to giving the gift of photographic memories to families that have experienced stillbirths, premature and ill infants and children in the Neonatal Intensive Care Units of their local hospitals, as well as children with serious and terminal illnesses.   
Heartfelt is dedicated to providing this gift to families in a caring, compassionate manner.
All services are provided free of charge.

Gavin Blue and his team of Heartfelt photographers offer an amazing service!  Unless you have been in this situation yourself you can not possibly imagine how precious these photographs are for families.  Nor can you possibly imagine how special the photographers taking the pictures must be, to willingly walk into such an emotionally charged environment.

To raise awareness and support for their services i encourage everyone to 'Like' their Facebook page.  Can we help them reach 10,000 Likes?  Arm your friends and family with this information now.  Hopefully they will never need to use this service but i would rather that you know, than hear you say "I wish I had known".

Have your tissues handy.
