Celebrants perform many kinds of ceremonies for families and children, including baby namings and welcomings, ceremonies for adoptive families, coming of age celebrations for adolescents and ceremonies marking birthdays, graduations, family reunions and more.
Welcoming ceremonies for new family members, whether by birth, adoption or marriage, have existed in virtually every culture and country. Publicly marking the entry of new members into our families is perhaps one of the most joyous celebrations we can share, and acknowledging our responsibilities to our children one of the most serious commitments we can undertake
Children also experience other important milestones, particularly when they pass from adolescence to adulthood. Ceremony can play a vital role in guiding your teenager through this coming of age transition, as your child takes on more mature responsibilities in the family and society. The child’s input in designing a ceremony meaningful to him or her is vital.
