Our beautiful baby daughter Anabelle was born sleeping June 2010.
Blessed with the screaming arrivals of our gorgeous rainbow sons,
Alexander October 2011, Zachary November 2013 and Lucas July 2016.

After Anabelle - Raising Rainbows
Heartbreak. Joy. Death. Life. But most of all Love.

Tuesday, 29 March 2011


Wouldn't it be nice if life really had a fairytale ending? 

You know, the one where the lost daughter eventually is rescued and returned to her parents and everyone lives happily ever after... 

This evening Jon and I have watched Tangled. The latest Disney film about the life of Princess Rapunzel. Stolen as a baby from her parents and kept locked in a tower in the middle of a forest. Each year, on her birthday, her parent's send lanterns into the sky in memory of their lost little girl. But then after years of being apart from their baby, she comes home and all the years of mourning and anguish are forgotten and over. 

I wish our lives would turn out like that. That somehow, years down the line there was some miracle and Anabelle came home. But I know that life is not really a fairytale, people here in the real world cannot come back to life and there will be no happily ever after. 

And so instead we wait to be reunited with Anabelle in our own deaths, in the glory of heaven.
