By sharing our story, our goal is to promote hope and healing to others who have experienced grief and loss. We chose soon after Carys’ fatal diagnosis to be vocal about our story and how we could see God moving the pieces into place for good things to happen.
Romans 8:28 (KJV) And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
The term, maranomi, is taken from the Biblical account of Ruth and Naomi and means bittersweet. It is used as a label for parents who have lost a child or children, just as orphan is a term used to label children who have lost their parents.
The book, Maranomi: The story of Paxton Cole and Carys Rainn is a true story about exploring faith in God and finding peace and joy in the midst of pain and sorrow after one twin is diagnosed with anencephaly, a fatal birth defect at 16 weeks gestation.
