The intention of a Name-giving Ceremony is to honour and recognise the baby’s natural state of grace and beauty. It enables us to be still and reflect on our responsibilities to this new born child.
These ceremonies usually involve the parents, grandparents, and other adults as well who vows to act as protectors, guides and guardians to help the child grow and develop
A celebrant baby blessing is the perfect answer when parents are of separate faiths.
After the adoption of a child, whether as an infant or an older child, an adoption ceremony helps to fold the new child into the existing family.
Pictures of the adoption ceremony can be used to explain how the child came to be in the family. For the older child, adoption ceremonies can be a powerful confirmation that they are now part of a new family unit with all the joys and responsibility that entails.
