About Me

I am a lot of things, wife, sister, friend, and aunt but most of all I am a grieving mother of a lost baby girl taken too soon.  This blog is my way of venting and surviving.  I'm trying to find my way back to funny, sarcastic, and happy but it's quite a journey.

Rainbow baby

Today while doing my normal reading blogs by the community of grieving mothers I discovered a new phrase..."Rainbow baby"

I read about 5 blogs today that used this term.  At first I thought it meant the loss of a second child but then I read on...

The meaning of a rainbow baby is:

Rainbow baby is the term for a baby after the loss of a previous child. It is the understanding that a rainbow's beauty does not negate the ravages of the storm. When a rainbow appears, it doesn't mean that 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. 
This one phrase brought so much, for the lack of a better word SUNSHINE into my day.  So ladies, when everything seems dark try to remember that someday your rainbow baby will come.  It just might be a little more work for us than some. So, I will leave this post with "I cannot wait until Kevin and I have our rainbow baby"


  1. So hoping you get your rainbow baby soon =) One quote I think of often is...
    “Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn't people feel as free to delight in whatever sunlight remains to them?”

  2. Thank you for sharing that quote. It is beautiful and I have never heard it before. I too hope that you get your rainbow baby and we both get our happy ending to all of this.
