Our Rainbow Baby
A baby born after loss is called a rainbow baby. This is because even though the storm may not be over the rainbow is a symbol of hope.
Our rainbow baby boy Jesse Lachlan was born Friday 12th May 2017 at 6:18pm.
Name meaning: Jesse - gift from God, Lachlan - warrior (so meaningful)
He has completed our family even though there will always be a missing piece. One of the first things I noticed was that Jesse has dark hair. It may turn fair and be like his living siblings or he may have dark hair and take after myself. I had always wondered whether Ava would of had brown hair and looked like me and seeing Jesse made me think it would of been possible.
Having Jesse has brought some healing to our hearts and we are so grateful to have him in our arms after a very long and stressful journey through infertility treatments and then a pregnancy that early on looked like it was traveling the same path of our pregnancy with Ava.
We miss our Ava Grace just as much as ever and I wish I had her here running around getting into mischief just as toddlers do. In no way is Jesse replacing Ava but he has brought so much joy to our family and we thank God for our gift!
Thankyou to everyone who has prayed for us and encouraged us over the past 2 years.
We walked out of hospital on the 16th May 2017 with our arms full which was exactly 2 years and 2 months since losing Ava and walking out with empty arms.
