Adoption Welcome Ceremony | Becoming One of the Family

We are based in Cheshire East, but can travel anywhere you might need us to deliver your unique and tailor-made adoption ceremony

The adoption of a new member in to your family is a truly wonderful and incredibly significant event. An occasion worth celebrating and sharing with family and friends. Adoption ceremonies provide a unique and memorable way to welcome your new baby or child in to your family, to help them feel welcomed and accepted by their new wider family. Once the legal aspect of adoption is completed, this is a beautiful opportunity to move into the realm of being a ‘forever family’ and beginning the journey of love and honour that parenting brings.

 

Adoption ceremonies can include the option to have parents and children (if old enough) make pledges to each other. And can include symbolic rituals to help strengthen the unity of the new family.

 

  • You can hold your adoption ceremony wherever you like
  • Each adoption ceremony is entirely unique and tailor-made for you personally

 

The ceremony allows for the opportunity to make a commitment to be a ‘forever family’, woven together with moments that signified the depth of your new bond. The ceremony celebrates the community spirit of family and seals the relationship between the child and his or her adoptive parents.

 

Naming ceremonies (where you might be giving a completely new name, or just the family name, to your new son or daughter) can be included in the ceremony too (at a significantly discounted rate).

 

By creating a unique adoption ceremony incorporating elements that are special to you both, For Life’s Journey and Tuirenn Hurstfield will help ensure your Adoption Ceremony is a perfectly personalised occasion. From the very first meeting, this ceremony will be focused, designed and constructed with only your new family in mind.

 

As this ceremony is purely symbolic there are no legalities or paperwork involved: you can hold it wherever you like and include whatever readings, poems, hymns, music or rituals that you find meaningful.

How Do We Book You?

First you need to check the details of the Adoption Welcoming Ceremony to see if you’d like to book us for before you get in touch. There are more details on these opposite.

 

What Happens Next?

When you first meet Tuirenn, you’ll just spend some time getting to know each other so he can find out more about you, your family, and your wishes for your ceremony. You may already have lots of ideas, and that’s totally fine – we can work together to make sure it feels just right.

 

Once you’ve confirmed the booking, Tuirenn will get started on writing your ceremony straight away. With his experience he can make suggestions, and together you’ll create something that feels right for you. This will possibly include discussing reading options with family and friends you have chosen to take part.

 

Preparing the Ceremony

As soon as possible before your date we’ll send you a script for the ceremony. You will have lots of input and your feedback is welcome. We’ll work together as much as you like until you’re 100% happy with the result.

 

On the day Tuirenn will conduct your ceremony as planned, delivering a personal and beautiful service for you and any family or friends you have involved. Afterwards you’ll get a beautifully bound copy of the ceremony script to reflect on in future years, together with a keepsake certificate.

* Please note: certain symbolic elements may incur additional costs of up to £75 if you wish to use props you would like to keep, we will discuss at the point of your decision.
