29 MarButterfly birthdays.

Over the last few weeks we celebrated not just one, but four Butterfly birthdays. It was a time of celebration and joy, with plenty of happy memories made. We love to recognise these special events and cherish every moment we have with our children.


Austin celebrated his third birthday this month. When he first arrived; so frail and uncomfortable we could not imagine what the next week would hold for him, let alone looking further than that. Now here he is absolutely thriving. We cannot wait to see what his future holds. His ayis blew out his birthday candles with joy, whilst making special wishes for his future.


Olivia turned seven this month. We enjoyed celebrating another birthday by her side and gave her the biggest and best party she had ever seen! Olivia is dearly loved in our home and we hope this next year is her best one yet. We do not know what her future holds but our focus is on making every day memorable for her. We strive to see her smile everyday.


Melvin celebrated his ninth birthday this month. It was the first birthday we had the honour of celebrating with him and his ayis wanted to make him feel extra special. We showed him how we do birthdays in the Butterfly Home with a big party and lots of cake. The smiles on his face when we sang happy birthday to him were absolutely priceless.

Jonah also celebrated his third birthday. His favourite thing about that day, was the life size robot balloon one of our volunteers brought. He insisted on keeping it beside him all day and ensured it stayed in his nursery at night time. Jonah’s future remains uncertain but we hope he will have a bright future.

We love celebrating our children and birthdays are the perfect excuse for celebrations! We are so excited to see what this year has in store for each of these precious children.
