**Trigger Warning: Post contains a story on infant loss**I’m always convinced people come into our lives for a reason, whether it is because they will enrich your life, or you theirs. I am so thankful that Brynn reached out to me. At our consult we chatted over coffee about what to expect, small talk as we got to know each other, and ultimately I learned about the loss of her twins, a son and daughter. It is never lost on me the unimaginable grief of losing a child, much less two… at the same time. And it’s also never lost on me, how strong these parents are. I’m sure they don’t feel strong, I’m sure there are days they are the weakest hearts on the planet. But hearing her story, and the hope, and the triumph of this pregnancy and to again be blessed with twins… a son and daughter, absolutely gives me goosebumps.  I am beyond thrilled that they got their DOUBLE rainbow! I am forever enriched by their story, by their friendship, and by these two miracles!

Brynn has a few words to share on her experience, I can’t thank her enough for blessing me with the chance to share in this AMAZING moment with her and her husband. How did a land a “job” like this?!

Nothing about our journey to parenthood has been easy. After years of fertility treatments and losing our angel twins, getting to 37 weeks with our rainbow twins felt like such a blessing. Little did we know we were in for another roller coaster ride.

As we neared the birth of our twins, it began to come up that I had hired a birth photographer.  I got a lot of weird looks and awkward questions. To ensure a safe pregnancy, I had surgery to place magic bands around my cervix, necessitating a C-section. I know people were thinking, “Who wants pictures of a C-section?!” I am very thankful that Neely was able to participate in our journey.  I trusted her to take pictures of everything and the pictures are tasteful and beautiful.

Our birth experience did not go as planned, but that makes me even more grateful for these amazing pictures. (PSA to other mamas-if you go into labor hours before your scheduled c-section and go to the hospital early hoping they will give you drugs, they won’t. No matter how many times you ask!)

For any parent the words “We have to take your baby to the NICU” is devastating. For us, those words created a nauseating sense of deja vu. Less than two years before, we lost twins at 23 weeks and the NICU was the scariest place on Earth. My whole pregnancy, I told people my goal was healthy babies and to never set foot in the NICU again.

Our NICU journey was cathartic in so many ways. We had amazing doctors and nurses who have such a heart for the tiniest babies. They kept us sane, answered a million questions, didn’t laugh at our attempts to dress the munchkins and were just as excited as we were at each milestone towards getting released.

Because a c-section is major surgery, I had to remain in the OR while the babies were whisked away to the NICU.  Seeing the slideshow Neely compiled, showed me so many beautiful moments that I missed due to the c-section.  Words cannot express how grateful I am to have these moments captured.

Our journey to have a family has been a walk of faith. Aislyn and Grayson are an answer to many prayers.  We are so blessed to have these rainbow babies; Isaiah 61:3, they are truly beauty for ashes.

    Always enjoy seeing these slideshows and hearing about the safe arrival of a baby, but am especially relieved and thrilled when it is a Rainbow baby. I was in your shoes, I know these amazing twins in no way replace their brother and sister, and am so sorry for their loss. I know you still miss them. I am so happy these sweet babes are home and well and surrounded by so much love.
    Neely – beautiful portrayal of this family’s story. I especially love that each baby’s departure from the hospital was captured – what a special documentation of their journey home.

  2. Donna says:

    I really enjoyed this beautiful story…Neely you did an amazing job of telling it too… It is always emotional to see life begin and all the love that is surrounding it, but you always seem to have a gift of catching the right moment to click, I love what you see, and how you put it all together, the music is beautiful and always seems to go along with the story… I pray that God will continue to bless this family as they make many happy memories together…

    May I simply say what a relief to find an individual who actually knows
    what they are talking about on the internet. You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make it
    important. A lot more people should read this
    and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you are not more popular since you most certainly possess the gift.
