On Sunday, June 13th, Tomorrows Children’s Fund hosted our Annual Butterfly Release Program for our Bereaved Families In Honor Of All Of Our TCF Angels Who Are Always With Us.
Judy and Adriana, our esteemed Social Workers, led a truly meaningful and touching Program, Naoko, one of our Child Life Specialists played lovely music and Heidi, a dear TCF friend, led a meaningful and powerful yoga/meditation session. Poems were read, stories and memories were shared. Each family received a puzzle piece to decorate and honor their child. The puzzle was assembled symbolizing the togetherness of these Families and letting them know they are never alone. The day wrapped up with all Families receiving butterflies that they then released.
Some stay and others quickly fly away but those we have lost are always near.
Perhaps the Butterfly is proof that you can experience a great deal of darkness and still emerge as something beautiful.
