Quote from MishlB
I wish more of our parents would treat their babies as lovingly, instead of shooting heroin for 9 months, then decorating their cribs with rosaries and pictures of Jesus.
And the name on the crib card is "Destiny" "Miracle" "Precious" or "Heavenly" right? Also a full code, "do everything" kind of baby? Grrrrr...you're right. I see too many parents who treat their babies like crap in utero and then expect us to work miracles afterwards.
Babies are something to be treasured, to be adored, to be marveled at! That's why I like her pictures - she puts babies into the spotlight as the beautiful creatures that they are.
The preemie picture in question...in one of her books, there was information in the back talking about taking that photograph. It was a gentle older man with beautiful, hardworking hands, and a healthy, stable preemie. The picture was taken in the NICU, probably a few feet from the isolette. Heck, we've send kids HOME recently who are that about that size!!!
The pictures I can do without are the ones where the women wear these body stockings and they drop the baby inside to look like she's pregnant and we can "see" the baby inside of her. Those kind of rub me the wrong way.
