On the drive home, I first considered whether or not I would ever be able to bring another child into this world. I looked out the window and saw a giant rainbow arched across the sky. I knew without a bit of doubt that God's answer was "you shall have another child."
He was born on good Friday on the 13th of April. God revealed to me he would be a boy. And we promised to name him Jude after the saint to whom I prayed for the entire year that Bennett was treated for a brain tumor. And yeah, the Beatles song works too..."take a sad song and make it better."
At 6:00pm Jude passed through the same portal that his brother had passed 2 1/2 years earlier, and he took his first breath in the same spot that Bennett took his last. A friend stopped on her way to Good Friday service to take a photo of the double rainbow that was so beautiful it made the evening news.
He is my miracle. He tells me that "God slide me down a rainbow into your arms." And I believe him.
Happy Birthday Rainbow Baby!!! I LOVE YOU!!!
