25 JulBirthday Bonanza

Birthday’s in the Butterfly Home are always a BIG deal. We celebrate each child’s birthday with joy, happiness and parties, knowing for some, it may be their last one. We pull out all of the stops, having fancy cakes, bright balloons, music, dancing and singing! This month we did something a little different… We went on an outing to a local indoor play area to celebrate their birthdays in style. Thankfully, all of the children were well enough to attend escorted by their wonderful ayis, nurses, office staff accompanied by many dedicated volunteers. It was a big undertaking getting all of the children and staff onto the bus, but everyone had a smile on their face – we have never seen Ronan so happy!

The nurses had an early start that morning, taking a balloon making class and helping to decorate. They can now add balloon animals to their list of endless talents!37126549_10160474383435648_742531680052445184_n37078108_10160474384655648_1820272732785344512_n

Once all of the decorations and preparations were complete, it was time for the children to arrive and to kick off the celebrations in style. We celebrated all of the Summer Butterflies in one GIANT party. Reuben, Elora, Felix, Zach and Karis were the centre of attention, and were our Summer Butterfly stars.

If you have followed our previous birthday blogs, you may have noticed that a fancy cake is one of the most important parts of any party. This was no exception and this cake tasted even nicer than it looks.

Each of the children got to blow out their candles with their ayis making a wish for each of them.

The day was filled with love, laughter, games and music, celebrating our children surrounded by loved ones.

Today was a day of celebration and joy, a day for rejoicing and being thankful for every day we get to spend with these children.

We ask you to join with us today to send good wishes to our Summer Butterflies for the year ahead. We never know what the future will hold for our children or where they will be for their next birthday, so we focus on the present day and give them all that they deserve today and always – love, happiness and celebration.
