Baby Anniston- Rainbow Baby

Have you heard the term Rainbow Baby but wondered what in the world that meant? Were they ethnically so mixed that they represented many nations? Were they the baby of a guy couple? These were some of my first thoughts!
According to Urban Dictionary, a Rainbow Baby is "a baby that is born following a miscarriage. In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better... The storm (pregnancy loss) has already happened and nothing can change the experience…something colorful and bright has emerged from the darkness and misery". After I read that, it made sense! A Rainbow Baby is the blessing that follows the heartache of losing the baby (or babies) before.
Well, little Miss Anniston is a Rainbow Baby. Luckily, she follows just one loss, but having had many friends who have had miscarriages, one loss is one too many. I'm just so happy I had the chance to meet little Miss so early in her little life! Having meet her parents before they were married, it was great to see them as a family.
