You know the babies that we call "Rainbow"? A rainbow baby is the term used to refer to a baby born after the loss of a child by its parents.
Indeed, everyone knows the expression "After the rain, comes the good weather"! And when the sun comes out, you could see a magnificent rainbow in the sky. So, after the tragedy of death, hope is reborn!
Although I have never experienced a miscarriage or the loss of a child, I can imagine the incredible pain it can bring. Many of my clients come to seek a little comfort in my reborn dolls.
Although some are looking for an exact copy of the lost baby, others, on the contrary, choose to move away from the painful image or memory. Some just need to take care of someone again, rock, cuddle, dress...
It is obvious that a reborn baby can never replace a child, these people are well aware of this, don't worry! But if they can lessen even a little the pain caused by this loss, why not?
If it is a miscarriage or a child who died at a young age, some will like to use the furniture, the clothes and sometimes even the first name that was intended for this lost child. This is unique to everyone and it depends on where the parents are in their stage of mourning. Everyone experiences it in their own way and above all, at their own pace. And what is good for some is not necessarily so for others!
Mourning is terribly difficult to go through, and doubly so when it comes to a child, since it seems to go against nature itself. So if you see in reborn dolls a hope to get through... Go for it! Do not concern yourself with the judgment of others. No, you are not crazy! You are simply trying to survive the impossible!!
If you hesitate and I have convinced you, so much the better!! If you didn't know about reborn babies and I just introduced them to you, so much the better! The important thing in all of this? Well I hope that reborn dolls will have the chance to make you discover their immense power, they can bring comfort, support and even love within your home.
No, reborn babies are not just simple "harlots" or dolls!
