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.

The day we found out about you was so scary but Mommy and Daddy were very happy. We started buying you all kinds of toys and clothes. Then one day the doctor said you had no heartbeat. Mommy was in so much pain. Then the doctor told us that we had lost you and Mommy needed surgery right away. That day changed my life. We wish we could of got to hear you laugh, smile and even cry. You have a baby sister now. Watch over her Angel boy. We love you and miss you more than words can explain.

Love Mommy, Daddy & Sissy
