Rainbow Baby

It is always such a great pleasure to be able to share the work of Meghan Wiesman Photography with you!  Somehow this one slipped past our editing process (oops), so you’ll see that her little blurb at the end is quite dated (sorry!).  This is her third time featured on IMB (but the first time in over two years).  We are always so very impressed with her talent and this one is extra special!!

A rainbow baby is a baby born following a miscarriage or still birth. It’s the rainbow at the end of the storm. The storm of a loss, the rainbow of a baby. Hailey. my first born daughter, is my rainbow baby.

“Rainbow Babies” are the understanding that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravages of the storm. When a rainbow appears, it does not 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 the clouds. Storm clouds may still loom over but the rainbow provides a counterbalance of color, energy, and much needed hope. ” ~Unknown

In light of Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day last month (October 15th) and the anniversary of my miscarriage coming up (Thanksgiving!), I decided I wanted to celebrate my rainbow baby. She is the light at the end of a very dark tunnel. My rainbow after the storm. She keeps me on my toes, reminds me so much of myself and I am very thankful she is my rainbow baby.
