Meet the Sahs family. What made this shoot so special was that it took place about a week before baby Samson (a fitting name) was scheduled for open heart surgery. Samson happens to have been born with down syndrome and, as many of you know, one of the non-profits we actively support is the Global Down Syndrome Foundation. We admire the Sahs family for their hope, courage, and love.
Update: Surgery successful and Samson is recovering well
Update: October 23, 2010: Samson passed away. His short 111 day life was a blessing to family and friends. His amazing parents wrote letters to to be read during the memorial service. His mom’s letter included a poem she wrote:
We prepared our hearts as we prepared your room.We changed our expectations as you grew in Mommy’s womb.The joy of your arrival dispelled all doom.But now you’ve gone and we battle the gloom.Our only hope is to pattern our lives so we’ll see you again soon.
