Organization Overview Maddux Achilles Haggard was born on Feb. 4, 2005, with a condition incompatible with life. On the sixth day of his young life, his parents Mike and Cheryl Haggard had to make the excruciating decision to take him off life support. Before they did, they called photographer Sandy Puc' to take portraits of them cradling their son. Puc' photographed the couple with Maddux at the hospital before he was removed from life support and after — when he was free from the tubes and the wires that had sustained him. Those tender photographs documenting Maddux’s eternal connection with his parents inspired Cheryl Haggard and Sandy Puc' to begin the nonprofit organization, Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep (NILMDTS). Since 2005, NILMDTS has provided tens of thousands of parents with the free professional portraits of their baby. NILMDTS administers a network of 1500 volunteer photographers in the United States and around the world.
