Red Thread Sessions is an organization that strives to honor and continue that red thread by connecting adoptive families with photographers who take a special interest in adoption. These photographers offer discounted sessions to families who are in the process of adopting a child or who have recently adopted a child. For more about how The Red Thread Sessions work, please visit their website at www.redthreadsessions.com. At Simply Baby, we will gift mommy and daddy with a complimentary session and 5 digital files for social media. They will also receive 50% off all prints, canvases or albums. It is such an honor to be a part of a journey of this kind!! If you know anyone who might be interested in a Red Thread Session, please contact us here
We also volunteer for the “GOLD HOPE PROJECT”. Gifting a sweet family with a child fighting cancer is such a rewarding act of kindness for us!!

What is The Gold Hope Project???
The Gold Hope Project is a registered 501(c)(3) non profit organization. They are a group of photographers aiming to gift families battling a pediatric cancer diagnoses free portrait session for their little warriors.
Many families with ill children are emotionally, physically and finanicially strapped; it is the heart of The Gold Hope Project to take at least one worry off their shoulders and gift them something magical – the smilies of their children frozen in time.
The Gold Hope Project’s goal is to make sure that these already over-burdened families have an everlasting documentation of the joy and whimsy of their children while simultaneously raising awareness of and funds for pediatric oncology research and treatment.

What is a Rainbow Baby?
A rainbow baby is a baby born shortly after the loss of a previous baby due to miscarriage, stillbirth, or death in infancy. This term is given to these special rainbow babies because a rainbow typically follows a storm, giving us hope of what’s to come.
What Makes A Rainbow Baby So Special?
Having a baby soon after losing one brings a slew of emotions, and many rainbow moms will tell you that not all are positive emotions. Many mothers who have weathered the loss and gone on to have another baby feel a tremendous sense of self-doubt and guilt at times. They fear that others will think they have gotten over their previous loss, or that they have moved on or replaced their baby. They fear that having a rainbow baby after stillbirth in some way dishonors their baby who has passed, and that the joy of the next baby will prevent the mother from properly grieving. However, a rainbow baby does not mean that your loss should be forgotten; such a devastating loss can never be forgotten. Rather, your rainbow baby will carry the torch of the love you will always have for the child you lost, and when you hold that precious baby in your arms, you will fully understand the meaning of the term. The beautiful rainbow baby stories told by rainbow moms are triumphant tales of renewal and healing; the underlying emotions ranging from bittersweet happiness to overwhelming joy.
