Tribute to Baby "boy" Feigy

The metamorphosis of the butterfly is a powerful symbol in so many ways for us when we are grieving. They are the beautiful tiny spark of life that came to us, lighted in our lives for a too brief moment before fluttering away. They are the hope that the transformation that loss brings into our life, can result in something different, something beautiful. We may not be the same at the end of our journey, but we have grown, we are able to see things that we could not before. They are the hope that we may swallow that butterfly soul searching for us, and hold a baby in our bodies and in our arms once more.
"All our Hopes and Dreams, now carried on Butterfly wings..."

"As a butterfly graces our lives with one moment's fragile beauty, so too has your baby's presence blessed you, and those that surround you with his short life, and unique spirit. May you find peace, and joy with each butterfly that passes, knowing that your baby lives on in the hearts of all he touched."
I love you guys!!!!!

Beautiful!! I'm in tears again. Thank you for this,Cory; now everytime I see a butterfly I will be reminded of our "little Feigy" thus he will never be forgotten.GG

Cory ~ thank you. What a wonderful way to view this experience. I think that this poem can be applied to any difficult situation in our lives. The process of change and growth and through it the eventual metamorphis of beauty. :) It's really strange because before I read this post this morning, I looked out the kitchen window and saw a huge butterfly. I thought is was a hummingbird at first, but realized quickly it was a beautiful big butterfly! I think I even muttered something out loud, but no one was around to hear me. :) Of course when I read this I was in tears. I love you and thank you so much for this statement of encouragement and peace.
