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.

Miguel Alonzo Castell

Señor, Tú que conoces la pena que nos embarga
por la muerte de este niño Miguel, consolarnos con el pensamiento
de que ya vive feliz, junto a Ti, en la gloria. Por Jesucristo, nuestro Señor.
