Penelope Rose // The Rainbow Baby

As of recently, I have gotten more and more courage to talk about our loss.

While it is definitely not easy to talk about, I feel more at peace that our Baby E #1 is with Jesus.

What is a rainbow baby?
A rainbow baby is a baby following a miscarriage or still birth.

Rainbow: a sign of hope after a storm.

I was talking with Marcelo the other night about Baby E, and I asked him through tears, “What would it be like?” {He knew what I was talking about.} He said, “It would have been wonderful, but think about it this way. If we had that baby, we wouldn’t have Penelope. But he* is safe with Jesus.” {*We think Baby E #1 was a boy.} He was right. We don’t have anything to worry about, and we have a precious baby girl that we will welcome very soon. And we are so thankful for this “Rainbow Baby” we have been so very blessed with.

What can you do for us?
PRAY for us. Like I said, it is not an easy road to go down, but I believe in the power of prayer. There is a great feeling in knowing that people are praying for you. And, while we may not completely heal, it WILL get better and easier.
ENCOURAGE us. Send us encouraging Bible verses, or just let us know that you’re thinking of our little family.
LOVE us. One of my favorite verses is Ephesians 4:2-3 which tells us to walk in this manner, “with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”  Bear with us in love. Trust me, we will love you back for it!

Thankful for both Baby E #1 and #2,
Momma E
