Rainstorms & Rainbows

“My Little Angel Baby” is changing to “Rainstorms & Rainbows”. The content will be the same, but I felt inspired to change the name of my blog for a couple reasons.

First, I really do believe that one day God will give me and my husband a healthy child. “My Little Angel Baby” only focuses on the one unborn child I lost; and while I will never forget my sweet August, losing that baby is not the end of my story. Battling infertility is only for this season. There’s a rainbow coming; and when that happens, I want to continue using this blog to document those pregnancies, births, and our journey together as parents.

My hope is in Jesus and He promises to work all things together for my good. That means He can turn my lemons to lemonade, my mourning into dancing, and my rainstorm into a rainbow. And I’m waiting with expectation for that promise.

 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

 

Lastly, I don’t believe that my baby, who was once a tiny human growing inside of me, is now an angel. I do believe that the souls of babies and other loved ones who die in the Lord go to be with him in heaven, but not as angels. I think a lot of people use that imagery as a form of comfort when they lose someone, which is okay, but it is not to be taken literal. So, I changed my blog name. Splitting hairs, I know. I’m a deep thinker 🙂

Oh yea, I also added something new to the site! Inspired by Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness month, I wanted to create a wall of remembrance where you can submit a form to have your baby added. Check it out!

Just a young lady from Detroit. I'm a Christ follower, wife to Marcus, med student, mommy to a fur baby and mommy to two babies born into heaven. It is my intent that through sharing my story, you are given the courage to share yours as well; whatever that story may be. For those out there who have experienced pregnancy loss or infertility, I hope that something you read here will provide as much healing, peace, and comfort for you as it did for me to write it. I want you to know that there is hope on the other side of this heartbreak. There is a rainbow after the rain! I love to connect with my readers so feel free to comment or contact me, let's talk! Happy reading and God Bless!
