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

So glad that your going to have beautiful weather for the butterfly release. The butterfly release is a great idea and a wonderful way to get your other kids involved. I know May 2 will be a hard day for you. I'll be thinking about you all and praying for comfort for you.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

Wow what a sweet idea. I'm so glad your butterflies are all ready for their big day, and that the weather seems to be cooperating! What a sweet way to remember your precious girl.
