Finding the Rainbow and Rachel McGrath have changed all that. Her story is a harrowing tale of; sadness and loss; of anger and pain; and yet what shines through more than anything is the wonderful hope and acceptance that she and her husband have. To have suffered the ups and downs of so many raised expectations only to have them cruelly dashed against the rocks has no doubt shaped much of her views on life now. I found myself constantly admiring the way in which these two people have handled the cruel twists of fate that life has handed them.
The book itself is beautifully written and Rachel McGrath draws you into her own private, personal world and gives you the understanding of how this all really felt to her. It didn't take long for me to full realise that what I thought of as a little blob inside her uterus, was in fact so much more. It was the dreams and aspirations of two people who desperately want to have a child and for whatever reason were unable to progress the pregnancies past the five or six week period. The reader feels the pain and anguish of the author and yet, there is a positivity and a sense of hope from this book.
I thoroughly enjoyed Finding the Rainbow and give it the full five stars that it rightfully deserves. I would recommend it to anyone, not just parents or prospective parents. It is one of those books that leaves you feeling better than when you started reading it.
Well done to Rachel McGrath - an excellent piece of work.
