2 years ago I became passionate about 2 different things… photographing twins, and bring awareness to rainbow babies. Now, with my own rainbow baby who was a twin, it reminds me that the Lord knew what was coming… and was preparing me beforehand.
Now, what is a “rainbow baby”??
A rainbow baby is a child born after a loss or miscarriage. This could be losing a baby at birth, in the womb… maybe even before you get to go to the first sonogram or hear a heartbeat on the monitor.
Our little Keshet was a twin. His brother, Arrow, who was identical, left us and joined the Lord just a few days after we saw the boys on the sonogram at under 8 weeks gestation and got to hear their tiny heart beats.
I still have a hard time saying “was” instead of “is” when I talk about Arrow. In my mind, he’s still present. He isn’t quite gone. It’s a weird thing to work thru emotionally… and makes me so glad for the blessing of the Lord to be able to go to him!!!
Meaning of his name:
“Keshet” means “rainbow” in Hebrew (we pronounce it like ‘Ka-sh-et”, though traditionally it’s pronounced with a “ehh” sound)
“Josiah” means “Jehovah has healed”
