While dealing with complications with our second pregnancy I found a community of women who were cautiously awaiting the arrival of their 'Rainbow Babies'. I had never heard of the term but just the two words together made me smile what could be more beautiful than a Rainbow Baby?
But what is a Rainbow Baby? A woman named Courtney someone I have never met explained it beautifully ...
"Rainbow Babies" is the understanding that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravages of the storm. When a rainbow appears, it doesn't mean the storm never happened or that the family is not still dealing with its aftermath. What it means is that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds. Storm clouds may still hover but the rainbow provides the counterbalance of color, energy and hope.
I am currently 'Chasing Rainbows' with the hopes of someday finding a beautiful Rainbow ... our Rainbow. I will never forget my Angel babies, they are part of me and always will be, but I cannot give up hope.
Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD.
