A rainbow is a promise
of sunshine after rain
of calm after storms
of joy after sadness
of peace after pain
of love after loss.
A rainbow baby is a baby born following loss. These mommas are just 6 out of the millions that experience pregnancy/infant loss every day. Some speak out. Some stay silent. Some have lost many. Some try for months or years. Some meet their sleeping angels. All loved and never forgotten.

Absolutely love this. Alex Bolen is a wonderful, talented photographer. I was lucky enough to get to know Alex during her high school years in our school library. This story shows a lot of pain yet so much joy. There are a lot of us out there who have not really dealt with their miscarriages and stillbirths etc. It is not an easy thing to go through even once. When it happens again and again there are so many emotions involved. I am glad that these women have been blessed with their Rainbow babies. I am sorry for the pain they have endured. This has made me think about my own situation years ago. I guess my Rainbow babies are half **** backwards. My 34 year old twins, first born eventually followed by 3 losses. I'd like to thank the women in this piece and Alex Bolen for sharing all of this. It is kind of forcing me, years later to deal.
