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.
