Butterfly Footprints creates a special memorial keepsake for parents who have lost a baby.
The child's footprints are turned into an image of a butterfly.
Butterflies are a common symbol associated with the death of a child. Butterflies also have a religious meaning. They are a symbol for new life. This is based on its various stages of life. The caterpillar represents the mortal life of people here on Earth. The cocoon compares with death. The caterpillar breaks out of its cocoon & emerges with a new body as a beautiful butterfly, just as human beings emerge from death into new life.
By request, Butterfly Footprints now offers gift certificates. This will allow friends & family of bereaved families the opportunity to be able to gift them a keepsake. It is so hard to know what to do & say when a family loses a baby, & many seek out ways to bring comfort & do something for the parents when they feel so helpless in the situation. I remember how much gestures of love & compassion meant to me, & still do. I saved each trinket, letter, card, & memorial item gifted to me. I hope this brings forth another resource to those who seek it & comfort & healing to the families who receive it. The purchaser of this listing will receive a printable certificate to print & physically hand to the bereaved parent(s). The certificate will have an online coupon code for the parents to use at checkout when they "purchase" the Butterfly Footprint from the Etsy shop. *Once the order is placed, their child's Butterfly Footprint file will be created & sent to them via email. They can then have them printed at home, a photo lab, or print shop.
