What a wonderful occasion – the arrival of a new member of the family!
Marking this occasion with a ceremony that welcomes your new baby, adopted child, or extended family is a way to pledge your love and future commitment, with the giving of a name or merging of two families.
Included in this service can be symbolic offerings of commitment from guardians, guides or mentors as well as promises from siblings. These can take many forms such as balloons, bubbles (please ask!) or promisory notes to help with homework or football practice!
