The term rainbow baby refers to a baby born after a previous pregnancy or infant loss. The tears you cry when you lose your baby are the rain, and the new baby is the sun rising to offer new warmth and joy . . . and where sun meets rain, you have a rainbow. Miran is definitely our rainbow baby, and it's no accident that his tickers (top and bottom of blog) are both rainbow themed. Goodness knows we have had so much sadness and sorrow since losing our little John back in January, but Miran has brought us such joy already, and the sun is peeping through the clouds now . . .
