mpw 61

At three months, Kade Bauman couldn't hold his head up on his own. The doctors said to wait. He just might need a little more time. Then the seizures started. At one and a half years old, Kade has been hospitalized six times in the last year.

Diagnosed with epilepsy, cortical vision impairment and hypotonia, Kade's parents and grandparents, therapists and friends work together to give him the care he needs. "I knew we were strong, but I didn't know how strong," says Kade's mother, Annette Bauman.

i had an incredible time at the 61st missouri photo workshop in festus/crystal city. i owe everything to the bauman family who opened themselves up to me. thanks for letting me tell kade's story.

more photos and thoughts from the week coming up. but first, a good night's sleep.
