So, my angel baby Cora's birthday is next Thursday (May 2). She would be 7 this year. Anyway, for the past few years I've ordered caterpillars from insectlore.com/, that we've raised into butterflies and released on (or around, depending on weather) for her birthday.

Anyway, the emerged today! I'm so excited!




And it should actually be sunny and warm on her birthday this year (as opposed to snowing, like 2 years ago, or rainy and cool like last year), so we should be able to release them ON her birthday!

Here's last year's blog post of the butterfly release, if you're interested Loving Cora Rei: Butterflies and rainbows

I actually noticed that from some other post you made somewhere. I haven't seen any flying around outside yet, but we've had a LOT of snow this April!

This is a really sweet way you honor and remember your little one. I'm so sorry you had to go through such a time as you did, especially with your first. I've read a few pages in your blog...very very sad. That doesn't even cover it, I know. I do like the way you are coping with such a loss; hats off to you for being as strong as you are!

One of my favorite quotes ever is "You never know how strong you can be until being strong is your only option." I don't feel all that strong, but when I look at myself with a more objective eye, I guess I am. But it's a strength out of desperation. She wouldn't want me to fall apart like I wanted to (and still do sometimes). She wants me to go on and have a happy life, so...that's what I'm going to do.

You literally brought me to tears. What an amazing woman you are and Cora would be proud of the Mama you are for her. You are amazing!
