daniel {central | baton rouge newborn photographer}

Sweet Daniel was just 4 days old when he came to our studio for his newborn session. I got to meet the little guy when he was born, literally, as I was right there in the Labor and Delivery room documenting the moment for his sweet parents. What a life-altering experience! I am working on a video montage to share on the blog soon!

[…] had so much fun today with this sweet family. You may remember this baby boy from his newborn and birth sessions. I can’t believe he is 6 months old […]

I’m glad you have the courage to share these tignhs. I suspect many, many people feel the same way you do, but don’t have what it takes to say so or even admit it to themselves.Here are some poorly worded thoughts, imperfect, but meant to be helpful.I believe there are no accidents. The circumstances that we find ourselves in, though they seem to be thrust upon us are, in fact, designed the way they are because we need them, and even agreed to them.If the veil were removed at this moment, I would not be surprised to find that your children agreed, even covenanted, to come here with certain needs, problems, and challenges because you needed the experience of feeling like a failure at something you hold so important. Why would you need to feel like a failure? Because all of us are. None of us live up to the ultimate standard, and it’s extraordinarily dangerous for anyone to think they do. And yet, we’re surrounded by so many people who pretend to be perfect, who tell each other they are chosen and the Lord’s and all those feel-good titles that don’t include shitty mom in a desperate effort to cover up the fact that we all fail. But your particular circumstances have led you to drop the facade, to end the lie, and to confess to the world that you are not, in fact, ideal. And that takes courage and a great deal of humility. And someone as capable, bright and powerful as you likely would not have gotten there in any other way.In short, your children are working for your salvation.So the question is, what do you do about it? In the face of perceived failure, how do you respond? Oh, how I can identify with your desire to just give up, admit failure, and turn them over to someone else. And yet, you know that’s not the right response. So you keep trudging forward.It’s not fun. And as much as we hate it, it wasn’t designed to be. The point is, we’re here to become something we cannot possibly become on our own, and complete surrender is the first faltering step on the path that climbs. Surgery is not fun either, but the compassionate doctor will continue cutting until all the disease is removed, despite our pleadings to end the operation early. He knows that stopping before the operation is complete will cause it to fail, and all the pain suffered would be for nothing.From our limited vantage point, it’s not fair, it’s not right, it’s not good, and it’s not fun. The challenge is to accept that our vantage point is the problem, not the situation. From the surgeon’s perspective, the painful operation is the only way to save us, and he’s not willing to just let us die.One day, we will see with clear eyes and then understand how carefully crafted these trials were for us. And maybe, just maybe, you’re handling them better than you might think.I didn’t respond to your suicide post because I didn’t want to admit I’d been there myself. But I have. Often. And it hurts. Through these circumstances, I now realize that facing failure is an absolutely necessary part of the growing process. It is essential. And if we don’t get to the point where we think life isn’t worth living, we’ve not yet developed to the point where we can stand the crucible that will burn away the dross and leave the gold.But moving forward, working on in spite of perceived failure, this demonstrates faith in its purest form. Staying in this telestial world when you don’t want to be here is an act of faith. Continuing to try to mother extremely challenging children is an act of faith. And faith, when fully blossomed, produces power.Hang in there, Christine. All is not lost. They are not lost. This is a great opportunity to seek spiritual guidance about what to do. My advice: Don’t stop seeking until you obtain. No matter what. I’m very serious, and speaking from experience. There are answers available, but they are not available cheaply. And perceived failure is no reason to quit.Thank you for having the courage to write what you’ve written and to do what you’re doing.

I thought I’d have to read a book for a discovery like this!

I’m impressed you should think of something like that

As one of the three lunch participants I have to agree with Susan. That was an expensive lunch for what was pleasant enough brasserie fare. Was bloody hungry though and at least they were open (and busy). Can't say I'll be rushing back, it's the sort of place you'd recommend to out-of-town visitors as a safe option. I'm sure it'll be very successful. The two quid cover charge is just an annoyance, absorb it in the other (considerable) prices.

Jest o que considera necessário para se ter uma vida feliz? Apenas dinheiro! Será por isso que os Ucranianos são hoje considerados um dos povos mais infelizes da Europa?

Thanks! It’s a gamble cutting into fabric you’ve spent good money on, isn’t it? Getting stuff from the thrift like you do so often probably frees you up to take more chances.
