The rainbow couple shared their struggles over five years to prove that there is always a hope. The photographs are extra ordinarily heart touching.
The process of expanding your family seems quite easy nowadays as every few days we hear news on social media or in our families about a newborn entering into the family. But this might not be as simple for some couples out there and as their struggles are not presented on social media people don't even have a clear perspective of it.
However, a couple shared their struggles of about 5 years on social media with an amazing picture of their rainbow baby, London. Patricia and Kimberly O'Neill were trying for a baby for five years. They tried different strategies, switched doctors and hospitals but everything was going in vain either in the form of miscarriages or Patricia was failing to conceive.
She told about her long, painful journey that it took her four years, three miscarriages, and 1,616 IVF shots to make the perfect baby.
The couple then finally decided to have their dream photo happen along with depicting their struggles too. Photographer Samantha Packer, of Packer Family Photography was assigned this task. The photo had their baby girl swaddled in a rainbow cover and was surrounded by 1,616 IVF shots it took to conceive her, all the needles were laid out to frame baby London in a heart.
The couple wanted to pay homage to their difficult journey of expanding their family of three, and this took years filled with both emotional and physical struggles that's why this photo was taken.
The couple explains how until the day of delivery of the baby they were worried till the end. And Patricia had kept every IVF needle it took to conceive London, as Patricia had envisioned the portrait for so long, that Samantha Packer was able to bring to life.
Moreover, the couple decided to share the portrait because "there are so many women that are in some form of situation like this and who have a feeling of hopelessness and they look at someone who has been through it and they realize that there is hope there."
