It's a wonderful time in each parents lives to have the child Baptized or Dedicated. I myself am a mother of two and had a very difficult time deciding what to do for my children, as our families have different religious and spiritual views. It pleases me greatly to be able to assist parents in finding the right Baptism or Dedication ceremony. Each family and child is unique and beautiful the ceremony you decide upon should reflect these qualities you as a parent or guardian wish to bestow upon your children, and to acknowledge they are a gift and blessing that have been brought into our lives.
