7/14/09 - Butterfly Kisses :)



It doesn't matter whether I find the right words to say or not, as this photo just speaks straight from the heart.

Without a doubt, Kayleigh spent 30 minutes on Aimee before she made her way to me and my nose. What a blessing this was and how it made our weekend so beautiful.

"We love you sweet Kayleigh and we miss you SO very much!"

God Bless,

I love this picture there is a loving peace in your smile. I know thats got to be so hard to feel right now. I'm sure the butterfly passed those kisses on to your Angel!

Suzan said...

Awww, that brought tears to my eyes...kisses from Heaven for daddy!

I know it's not the same as having her here to kiss your nose but that is pretty dang close if you ask me.

I hope your days continue to be filled with butterfly love from up above!

God Bless!

That is the most precious picture and experience in the world. After I lost my first son, I had the same type of experience happen. Everywhere I turned there were butterflys around me or on me our my car or door... I felt him everywhere I went... what a blessing from God!
Bless you!

Tamara aka Cheapskate Mom said...

Amazing. Thank you for sharing this precious miracle of a moment. I am so happy you got a picture! Kayleigh got her beautiful wings for sure! One day we will all have our wings, until then keep your heart open and your eyes on beautiful butterflies.

Don, Aimee, Kaitlyn and Kysen said...

Praise God for sending us signs from heaven above....what an amazing moment for the two of you! Butterflies have always been so symbolic in our family and this just solidifies why!

The Hone's said...

Simply Amazing! That is so awesome. I dont have anything to compare as losing your little Kayliegh but I did lose 4 pregnancies and I had a tattoo done after I lost the first one and it was a butterfly with baby feet in its wings because I feel like my babies flew up to heaven on butterfly wings. Ok that might sound weird, but anyways. I love butterflies too and everytime I see them I think of my babies I lost and now yours too.

Erin said...

A butterfly is the ultimate sign of freedom....and I said the same thing about my brother when he passed....a soul set free to fly!

Kayleigh is soaring!

wicker0407 said...

Adam I am in tears. Funny how I have also seen a few butterflies around here lately and it seems they appear when I am in some despair. Your angel still knows how to bring a smile to my face and bring us all together. I do miss her so much. I hope you and your family are doing well your never far from my mind. God Bless you all!

Beth in NC said...

When my baby niece went to heaven, a huge yellow butterfly danced all through the crowd during her graveside funeral. It would land on her casket then flutter towards the sky. It stayed with us the entire time. Now, every time we see one, we think of her.

Beautiful.

Kim Runyon said...

I have chills. :) Amazing and beautiful. We saw a beautiful Monarch the other day, and I was thinking of Kayleigh. God bless.

Anonymous said...

Wonderful picture!
I love how Kayleigh is letting you know that she is ok.

About two weeks ago a sweet little blue butterfly kept landing on me and my mind immediately went to Kayleigh. What an impact that little girl had in her brief life.

God Bless

Charity said...

THE SPIVEY"S said...

How touching. I have to honestly say that ever since you said that Kayleigh is a little butterfly, everytime I see one, I wonder if it is her. I always give it a little smile and say hello Kayleigh just in case.

Kemp and Remis mommy said...

I always see two butterflies by me when they are out, I just know its them, Im glad you get to feel the love too:) shes so precious***

HoundDogMom said...

Totally amazing! Even though I don't know you personnally. It was just the other day I seen a butterfly at my window and the first thing I thought of was Kayleigh. See I released a pink balloon in her memory, so I assumed she was just stopping by to say "THANKS" for thinking of me and my family. :)

MommyIvy said...

Great picture. Kayleigh was stopping by to say hi.

Wendy said...

That is amazing! What a blessing!

Toni :O) said...

I visited the Butterfly House on Mackinac Island, MI over a week ago and Kayleigh was on my mind the entire time...just too sweet. We know she's watching over your family. Continuing to pray for your sweet family.

I have chills all over my body from this picture/post. I TOTALLY am a believer in that if you ask God for a sign...He will present it. I really believe this is God showing you Kayleigh is alive and well up there and wanting you all to feel loved and alive!!

God bless you all!

You're right, no words really needed. Instant tears are falling down my face, with a smile to meet them. This is absolutely beautiful! Kayleigh and GOD are doing an amazing job taking care of your family and making sure you are greeted often by them. Only those so full of faith will experience(or are aware when it happens)this kind of sign.

Love your guys and keeping you in my prayers everyday. Thank you.....again!

That is so precious. Kayleigh spent some me time with her Mommy and Daddy. Kayleigh was an amazing little girl and touched so many lives. Her Mommy and Daddy have touched so many lives also. Thank you so much for you and Aimee sharing your lives with us. I think about you guys often and check the blog everyday. I walk an hour in the mornings and at 4 and 5 am it is so peaceful and I just talk with God and pray for people while I am walking. Take care and God bless.

Kayleigh is clearly with you!! What a blessing!

Lisa Wolfe said...

What an awesome moment and to catch it on film is even better! I know someone else posted that they have seen more butterflies this year than ever and I have to agree. I was getting into my car the other day and the most beautiful butterfly I have ever seen put on a graceful show for me before I left the house. Kayleigh is sharing her love with all of us! What an amazing little girl to continue to touch so many people's hearts even after she is gone. You are so blessed!

TRULY TRULY AMAZING!!! WOW. My father also makes his presence known through a butterfly on his birthday and special occasions. I completely know this your butterfly is Kayleigh but may I ask prior to Kayleigh's passing, did you had many encounters with butterflies in the past ? I mean did they just hung around you like that ? thanks for sharing. It made my day!

thegilbreathfam said...

sweet little Kayleigh! It has to be her sign to you. So awesome.

Heather said...

One of my 2 baby girls who are in heaven was also born weighing one pound, and was also 10 1/2 inches long. Looking at the picture of your Kayleigh's hand reminds me of my little girl's hand...
After her death she came to me in a dream, dressed in a pale yellow and black dress with little pale yellow shoes. I can still picture her smiling face and wispy blond hair. She laughed as we played, and I kept asking her, "Are you my little Bumblebee?"
As I spend time outside with my little boy, those fuzzy bumblebees with the pale yellow middles often pass by, some stay and hover for a while. I know that her spirit is somehow out there with us, playing in the yard that was meant to be shared with her and their sister, and I feel peace, even if just for a moment, despite my grief.
God Bless Kayleigh, and all the angel babies.

Last night we were at my inlaws home and enjoying the evening air and there were two butterflies that were just flying around 'playing' around us for about 15mins all i could think of was your family and little baby kayleigh. It makes me soo greatful to 'know' people like you and the faith that we have in our Lord for what there is to come! The blessings that we have every day and how He reminds us that He is with us every step of the way! God Bless you!

momnananelson said...

I have read this post many times and each time it brings me to tears. I just want to say that the smile on your face with your Kayleigh butterfly on your nose is PRICELESS, I can find no words to express the feeling I can see in your expression. I pray that feeling stays with you FOREVER.

Sincerly,
Patricia

Erin said...

It has been a little while since I have checked in on the family of Freeman but know I think of you often, just about daily, as the angel my son and I say our prayers too now has the name Kayleigh, in honor of your amazing daughter. I wanted to note that this picture and the few words with it is absolutely priceless. I am so glad you have the spirit of your daughter in your life. Take Care

Hey Adam! Just only now got a chance to read the story of your little angle and was able to see her struggles in operation through the opsted video in youtube that was shared by millions of people in facebook. Oh!Man! Your angel made me cry... dang!.. She touches my heart as if like theres no tommorrow.. Continue to share and insipire the lives of those hopeless people through the story of your lovely and amazing angel Kayleigh.. I guess, Kayleigh is at peace now. And will never feel the pain anymore.. :( Hope, you and your family are all well now... Kayleigh, thanks for being such an inspiration. Continue to preach the love of God and miracles he does..

Miles away,
-Will-
