miracles

this past saturday, i witnessed another miracle:  i filmed the birth of a baby born at home to two loving parents, assisted by a team of midwives and friends.  two of his brothers met him moments after he emerged from his mother’s womb (the third, a toddler, slept on).  it was an intense and challenging labor, but with loving and professional support and care–and a lot of hard work–this mother brought her baby into the world outside the womb.

this summer i had the honor of stepping into this family’s world and filming other facets of their life.  our first endeavor:  a family excursion where we went on a whale watch.  other intimate and joyful events and moments were documented.  i did this entirely with out-of-pocket resources.  i hope to be able to transform this story into a film.  a film that will be a part of the “at home in maine” series.  a new film that will help educate women and their families about the choice to have a homebirth and receive midwifery care.

to do that, i need additional resources.  funds that will support the time and materials it takes to transform footage into a film.  i intend for this one to be the first of four more films that will be produced over this next year.

i’ve got two weeks to go with this kickstarter campaign–and a long way to reach my funding goal.  i will not receive any funds unless the entire funding goal is reached.  i need some angels here!  won’t you please be a part of my miracle and pledge to this project today?  miracles do happen.  i filmed one early saturday morning…

thanks to all who supported this project in week 4!
