Over a year an a half ago, after finding out that our near full term baby boy had unexpectedly died in utero, I found myself at the footsteps of a path so painful it was beyond imagining. I began writing as a way to process emotions while navigating my way through the new mountain of grief before me. These writings evolved into a book and that book became available for purchase on Amazon the same week we brought our Rainbow baby, Rori, home. In the book I share intimate details of our son, Beau’s, life and death along with how my husband, Brodie and I made it through the year after Beau’s departure. My hope is that this book will help others see that you can turn great loss into beauty and that broken pieces can be put back together. This book is about the year after. It is about our wonderful son Beau. It is about the highs and the lows. It is about the deepening, the stretching, the growing, and ultimately, the rebuild.
Filled with raw emotion, profound thoughts, other Angel Baby stories and original watercolour paintings.
There are two versions of the book available for purchase. The one with the red sticker on the cover is the black and white version (as it is much cheaper to print than the colour). In the books description it also indicates (Black and White Version) at the beginning.
The other is the full colour version.

Our Rainbow Baby Rori
Rori's birth was not without complication and it certainly wasn't free of fear. But what we have learned is that "...courage is not the absence of fear but the triumph over it" - Nelson Mandela
And oh what a triumph you are!
