Last month was pregnancy and infant loss awareness month. I got to spend an amazing afternoon building up a village with a few local families. Lots of hugs, smiles, and a few tears as we talked and remembered the little ones that were lost to soon. We ended the day with a sweet sky lantern release and unity string circle.
A few of the families have since had A "rainbow baby" which is a baby that is born following the loss of another baby.
In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better.
The rainbow does not negate the storm, but acknowledges it and creates something beautiful. Storm-clouds might still be overhead as the family continue to cope with the loss, but something colorful and bright has emerged from the darkness.
"I will not cause pain without allowing something new to the born, says the lord." Isaiah 66:9
Thank you to all that came out, supported and made a village. I am looking forward to doing this next year and keeping not only mine but your little ones memory alive <3
