Welcoming children to the family is a life changing event. It transforms everyone involved in ways that last a lifetime. What an honour it would be to participate in a ceremony celebrating the welcoming your child! A resident of Peterborough, and as a grandmother and mother of three grown children, I fully understand the significance of such an event. I would be pleased to help you find words that would be suitable and special, and that would also include the people who care most about your child. A Naming ceremony is a beautiful way to mark this life passage. Whether you desire a spiritual or traditional ceremony or wish to blend traditions in a uniquely new way, your child’s naming, welcoming or baptism ceremony requires someone to listen supportively and guide with sensitivity to help you make it uniquely your own. Bringing her love of families to the creation of each event, Julie would welcome the opportunity to assist parents at this important and special time in your family’s life journey.
