What is a Rainbow Baby?

For those who are not familiar with what a rainbow baby is I will explain with a little help from Susan at A Rainbow on the Horizon.

A rainbow baby is a baby who is born after a parent loses a child due to miscarriage, stillbirth or infant death.

"It is understood that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravages of any storm. When a rainbow appears, it does not mean that the storm never happened or that we are not still dealing with its aftermath. It means that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds. Storm clouds may still hover, but the rainbow provides a counterbalance of color, energy and hope."
