Every child’s birth is full of emotion, but for parents expecting a rainbow baby, there’s a unique set of overwhelming feelings that accompany the day of their baby’s birth.
Hope and Hunter Madden may have welcomed their baby girl Evelynn in 2017, but the couple had been through a lot, having experienced loss due to miscarriage as well as infertility. Their rainbow baby’s beautiful birth was photographed by Rogers, but more moving than the birth itself was Hunter’s emotional reaction to holding his daughter for the first time.
“This is a story about a mom and a dad who went through loss and persistence to get their baby,” Rogers captioned the stunning photo of Hunter holding his daughter on her Facebook page. “That tattoo on his chest was done after their first miscarriage, and now his daughter lies her sweet head against it. Both of them a reminder of triumph.”
