We’re Having A…

Girl!

Phoenix Iris DeRosier will join us in early June!

The name came to me when we were driving to our dating ultrasound in October, it was raining and as we were driving down into the valley I saw a rainbow above. The name just popped into my head and I suddenly found myself saying “what about Phoenix?!” It has such a powerful meaning and is so fitting for this baby after loss. “Iris” will be her middle name, in Greek mythology Iris was the Goddess of the rainbow. The Iris flower also represents wisdom and Valor, honoring her brother’s memory.

  1. Congratulations!!! You are so incredibly strong. Baby Sloan was with you in that moment, for sure! I’m a loss mom also, but I lost my baby while I was pregnant at 23 weeks. I feel my lost little one with me all the time and it’s things like that that make me aware. Or I’ll randomly see her name (Blakely, so not a common one) and I’ll know she’s with me. I hope your pregnancy is uneventful and you soon are holding your sweet rainbow baby in your arms. Her big brother in heaven will keep her safe ❤️ God bless!!
