The birth of Samuel, the first child of Chiara and James, was at the heart of our decision to return. "Now I lay me down to sleep" is an organization of professional photographers who donate their services to take photopgraphs of babies who die at birth. One of their members, Lisa, drove an hour and a half to take pictures for Chiara and James with baby Samuel.
On Friday, May 26, 2006 Samuel Lewis Hemsley was still born. All of Samuel's aunts and uncles, grandparents, and many friends of the family joined Chiara and James for his memorial service.
