"Rainbow Baby" has become the popular term given to a baby born after a loss such as a miscarriage, infant loss or stillbirth. Many mothers who use the term point out that a rainbow doesn't negate the effects of the storm, but rather transfigures the darkness of the landscape with light - with a symbol of hope.
A prayer answered. A dream realized.
