Today is a rough day for me and it always will be. June 8th will always be the day I lost what would have been my first born baby. It's been 8 years and even though it didn't feel like it back then, time really is healing. There will never be a day that I don't get a lump in my throat when I think about my baby that I never had the chance to hold, but the feeling that I would not survive that pain has lessened over the years. When I found my faith a few years ago I was given the gift of knowing I would eventually get to meet my unborn baby. Some day I will get to see them, hold them close, and I won't have to let them go. I have the promises of the God who in Romans 8:28 will make all things work together for the good of those who love him and are called according to his purpose and that is enough for me. God has since given me two healthy and happy boys, my rainbow babies. 

After a storm comes a rainbow and, unfortunately, that is true for this mama also. I know there will be no shortage of love for this baby, and this mama was glowing as she showed off her baby bump as the sun set behind the local mountains. It's hard to pick my favorites but here are some of them for you to enjoy.
