  2. My God, I'm drained... I can't imagine what that mother went through, nor can I imagine the emotion that as been with Renee Byer throughout this incredible project. My hat's off to her, but I've got to say I can't look at these again.
     
  3. news? this happened months ago...
     
  4. I thought l had seen it all.
    Now l think l have .
    My sister had to go because of cancer.
    She was in her late forties.
    To see a child though.
    This story is truly news to me.
    The courage and stamina of the mother is extraordinary.
    Thanks.
     
  5. Regardless of whether its recent news or not, its a harrowing piece
    of photography. Such bravery shown by all...
     
  6. Wow........ Such power is coveyed in those images. For those of us who have healthy children say a prayer of thanks giving. Then say a prayer for the ones who need the support during times of difficulty. That difficulty may be with a simmilar situation or the lack of understanding of events that occured seconds, minutes, hours, or months ago. Some people just never get it.
