my colourful girl

I came across a term recently that I'd never heard before: Rainbow Baby. Apparently, this is used to describe a baby born after a miscarriage, stillbirth, or death of a child. (Because they "bring colour into your life" after a loss.)

I got pregnant with Mia exactly 19 days after finding out Squeak had died. Immediately after I got a positive pregnancy test, I looked out the window and saw this double rainbow:


I always felt that Squeak and Mia were connected somehow, and the double rainbow always signified this to me. Both Squeak and Mia are rainbow babies because I got pregnant with Squeak immediately following a very early loss before the 5 week mark. My double rainbow babies. I like that.
