the blessing

Technically, my rainbow baby is older than the baby I lost, by two months. And so it is not Avalon who is the big sister. It is not as though Avalon has come back to me through Jo Jo. No… Jo Jo has her own spirit, her own unique feisty essence, not the essence of my dead daughter.

She does have something of Avalon, though. Not her life, or her mother, or her nursery. She did not usurp, nor did she replace. What she has from Avalon is her blessing. Every blessing that a child can and does wish for, she passed on to my rainbow daughter. 

My blessings, my darlings, my angels, my stars. The two girls who showed me the light of love.
