"Somewhere over the rainbow
It has been two months since we welcomed our baby boy. They have been the most incredible two months, filled with unlimited cuddles and that wonderful new baby smell. Sure, there's the crying, the never ending diaper changes, and sleepless nights; but all that stuff is overshadowed by the amount of happiness that fills our lives. The love within the walls of our home has grown exponentially with the arrival of this new little blessing.
Newborn babies have a special way to bring joy to their family, but even more so when that child is a Rainbow Baby. It's not that this child becomes the favorite, because as parents we could never pick one of our children over another. But the birth of a Rainbow Baby brings about SO MUCH HEALING. Not just for mom and dad, but for the entire family, including the older siblings who experience heartache too. It's a renewed joy, one that at one point I thought I might never feel again, but by some incredible miracle was granted.
Our little Rainbow is our family's perfect gift, hand picked for earth by his sibling in heaven. He has brought with him the power to erase the hurt, while also keeping the memory of the little one before him alive. He has been a constant remider that Jordan -the name we picked for our angel in heaven- existed, was wished for, is loved, and is not forgotten. He has truly been the calm after the storm. He is my living proof that a Mother's prayers are always answered, in due time.
