Loss is hard to deal with at any age, but it's especially difficult to help children deal with loss. And when it's the loss of a parent, it's that much harder. Kids need to remember and honor their parent who passed away as much as they need to move on with their lives, and it can be tricky to balance.
This beautiful video from @lokalatina shows what happens when a kid sees a sign they think is their parent saying hi from another dimension. This mom told her kids that butterflies are a sign of their birth mom. As she wrote:
"Today was magical for my son and I am so amazed it happened. We are grieving and these little moments mean so much."

The look on his face is just priceless. He really believes that's his mom, reaching out to him. And that's exactly what he needs to believe right now. Losing a parent at such a young age is so tragic, and it's huge that these kids have someone to raise them who clearly loves them very much. But remembering and honoring their mother will be something that they do for the rest of their lives.
Commenters totally believed this little boy was having a moment:
"the fact that the butterfly didn't move and let him touch her that's definitely his momma"
"Only those that have lost someone so close and special know how this sign means to us."
"definitely her she made away to let yall know yall all will be ok and she's always by yalls side"
"my babies always get so excited when they see a butterfly they will run to me saying that they saw their grandma"
"the night my mom passed the sky was filled with falling stars. so when my kids see a falling star they say grandma is passing by saying hello"
"This happened to me once, my cousin passed, she loves butterflies, one day a butterfly came to me, hung out all day On my shoulder, until I went home"
"That was definitely her…priceless moment!!"
Such a sweet encounter, and a beautiful memory for them both.
