Tobias Asher Tate... our Rainbow Baby

Chris and I are expecting our "rainbow baby" due January 12th, 2012. A rainbow baby is a (miracle) baby conceived after the loss of another child.

Rainbow Baby is 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.

As of today, our rainbow baby has a clean bill of health. Chris and I are so excited for the opportunity to be parents again and would appreciate your love, support and prayers as we go along this journey together. ♥
