our rainbow baby

i'm so excited to officially announce, we are expecting our rainbow baby in january!

the term rainbow baby is used a lot in the "baby loss community" to describe the baby that follows the loss of a child.

we miss baby david every single day.  being pregnant with my second child has brought a lot of feelings and emotions, but mostly, i'm just so darn grateful.

grateful that my body was able to support another pregnancy.

grateful that we have made it this far.

grateful that i get to experience pregnancy again, this time hoping for a more positive outcome.  

grateful that we WILL get to meet this little life.  

grateful for my whole journey: the excitement, the heart ache, the anxiety, the grief, and the hope; every last bit of it.
