Welcoming Ceremonies

The arrival of a new baby, adopted child, or stepchild into your life and into your family is such a joyful event. It is also a life-changing moment. Let me help you create a ceremony to honor how important it is.
 
By holding a welcoming (some people call it a naming ceremony), you both introduce a new person by name and also express gratitude for their presence, marking your commitment to their well-being and happiness, and welcoming them as a profoundly significant person in your life and the lives of your family and friends.
 
By selecting me, you’re working with someone with the training, skills, and experience to create inclusive, family-friendly ceremonies. It also allows you to relax, interact with your guests and enjoy this precious moment in time.
