You are the stars

Leo,
I wanted to share something I told your sister Alyssa today.

You are my sunshine,
Lily is my moon,
Leo is the stars in the sky,
And my next baby is my rainbow.

 

After I said it, I realized the significance of the rainbow.  After parent’s experience a loss, their “subsequent baby” (which is sort of a cold term) is referred to as their “rainbow baby”.  It’s a reference to God’s promise after the great flood.  Sometimes i’m really surprised by what comes out of my mouth.

 

I think of you constantly.  You are the stars in the night sky, looking down on us and shining light in the darkness.
I miss you, Leo.

Love you,
Mom
