Adoption Ceremony

​ 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 family events are so important, so I am happy to provide services to run alongside, or in addition to, adoption court declaration days.

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
