We can discuss wording, readings, vows and commitments. Also, you can decide whether you want to have god-parents, guide-parents or sponsors nominated, symbolic elements to your service such as hand or feet printing, wish-givings etc... Please do feel free to discuss your own family's needs.
I'm an adoptive mum myself, and my own son LOVED his Official Adoption Day in Court ('Gotcha' Day) and the huge party we had for him the following weekend. These events are so important, so I am happy to provide discounted (or even free...) services to run alongside, or in addition to, adoption court declaration days. .
An Adoption Poem
Not flesh of my flesh,
nor bone of my bone
but very remarkably,
all my own.
And never forget,
for a single minute,
that you weren't born
under my heart,
but in it.
Adapted from Fleur Conkling Heiliger's poem
BABY NAMINGS, NEW FAMILY & ADOPTION CEREMONIES
These services really can take place ANYWHERE! Just because you may want a non-religious Christening, or feel you fell that a church ceremony is not suitable for your family, you may still have a special ceremony to celebrate the arrival of a treasured new addition to your family, or significant new changes to your family. This can make for a wonderful and memorable event.
