Somewhere Over the Rainbow
A baby that is born after the loss of a baby or babies is called a Rainbow Baby. Rainbow Babies bring new hope to life after the "storm".
Brooks is our Rainbow Baby.
Today I was carrying Brooks around the house to get him to sleep and I turned on a lullaby station on Pandora (highly recommended by the way) and the song Somewhere Over The Rainbow came on and I was immediately in tears looking at my sweet little rainbow.
"Dreams you dare to dream really come true."
I still can't believe he is mine. I don't think I could ever really believe that it was possible to have another baby here on earth. I didn't really believe it until he came home and then all I could think about was how long was I going to get to keep him. It's becoming more real and I know as time goes on it will get better, but for now I am just thankful he is here and thriving.
