painting rainbows.

indiana. (north, south and in between)
hawaii.
alaska.
georgia.
illinois.
colorado.
texas.
florida.
korea.

i think i got them all recorded.

those are all the places that rainbows were reported. most of them on delia's birth and heaven day.

it started with my aunt posting a pic to my facebook. a rainbow over the farm. it made me so happy to see that God gave her paintbrushes already.

then it spread. everywhere.

my profile was filled with pics and reports of people seeing rainbows (and doubles!) in their town. and also sharing tragic stories of others babies that have passed and had their own turn with the brushes.

all over the united states...then back to our home in korea.

wow.

i also heard she had fun with stars last night. shooting ones just as a friend was praying for her.

she is busy. someone said just like her older sister. :)

we think she is making her rounds and sending thanks to all the people who prayed for her. for us. those very special friends and family. the ones we couldn't go through this without.

it's His promise for us.

i'm so happy He let her paint for us. i'm so happy she did.

we love you sweet delia. keep painting. we're watching.

I have been reading your blog, and have been praying for you all. I saw the most beautiful and vivid painted rainbow that I have ever seen last night. Here in Washington State, she is painting the skies! May she continue to paint the skies with pretty skies!!

I have chills. I am so thankful Delia sent you those rainbows.

They find a way, they just seem to find a way.
Hold tight in the days to come, you'll need all the rainbows she can send.
I'm glad you can see her loving you already, and I am so terribly sorry for your loss.
(Erin sent me, email anytime, xoxo.)

I keep trying to find the words to comment here.... I've been following along, as well, and my breath literally caught in my chest when I read your birthday/heaven day post for Delia. It is still hard for me to swallow through that. I am so sorry for your loss.

My heart aches for your pain, but also for your hope. I am praying for you and will continue to pray for you, and I, too, will be keeping an eye out for rainbows. Always, when I see them, I will think of Delia, and think of you.

Delia takes after mama making beautiful things. With the whole sky as her canvas. I'll be looking up for them a lot more now. <3

We didn't have a rainbow that day but we had a really amazing sunset.It was one of the the best that I have seen in a really long time.The shades of pink and blue were amazing. I'm sorry for your lose but she will always know the love that she had from her mom,dad and sister and anyone else that may have read your story.

Wow, I've just really been moved by your words, your strength, your story. I'm so very sorry for your loss. It's kinda strange that across so many miles a stranger can touch your heart, brings tears of sadness. Thank you for sharing your story!!

You don't know me, and I don't know you, not really. Your blog was linked to a parenting forum I moderate and I bookmarked it back in May, just after you found out that Delia was destined to be your angel baby. I followed your blog until my PC crashed in early July. A few days ago a light went on in my head that Delia should have come out to share her transient beauty with her family so I dug the PC out and made my husband spend more hours than he wanted to getting it to where I could access my bookmarks. Sadly, I read about Delia's birth and heaven day and I cried for you and for her and for the unfairness. Then I read about the rainbows, and I remembered how I had been laying in bed one day with my kids, feeling miserable with my own tiredness and suddenly my son grabbed the curtains and threw them open and shouted "Lights!" He's 20 months so his vocab is limited. I looked out and saw not one but two rainbows, their arches crossing each other. Never have I seen such a sight and I immediately grabbed the kids up, grabbed my camera and raced outside to capture that rainbow. In remembering that I checked my photo and the date of that double rainbow, 8/23/11. Thank you, Delia.
