Baby Blessings, Welcomings, And Namings

When Your Baby Is A Few Weeks Old, Consider Celebrating The Joyous Occasion Of Your Child’s Birth With A Baby Blessing

What could be more heartwarming than a celebration of new life!

alt="Baby Blessing"A baby blessing, (welcoming, naming, or sometimes called a glistening) is a ceremony that celebrates and welcomes your child into the family and community. These beautiful ceremonies are an alternative to a traditional baptism or christening. They have become very popular as they help fill the spiritual need for parents who are of different faiths, do not belong to a church, or do not practice a religion.

Your baby blessing ceremony can reflect your wishes as a parent. That way the baby blessing will be meaningful to you and your family and friends. You may choose traditional religious readings or non-religious readings from poetry or literature. I will prepare the custom baby blessing ceremony for you.

Many parents like to incorporate the spiritual and cultural traditions of baptisms and baby naming rituals that are important to each of them, giving them the opportunity to create their own spiritual desires and meet your needs as a family. Other parents prefer a nonreligious ceremony, focusing on welcoming their new baby, introducing him/her to his/her new community of family and friends. They may prefer a celebration that reflects their child’s journey and their gratitude to be parents. Often the parents will make a promise, similar to the promises made in wedding vows. In these promises, they pledge to love their new child unconditionally and guide him/ her through life.

Many times the parents will include the participation of the Grandparents and siblings in the ceremony as well.

Having a baby blessing ceremony is a lovely occasion for family and friends to come together to recognize, honor and celebrate the precious gift that is your child.

All baby blessing ceremonies can be tailored to reflect your desires. They may reflect a newborn baby, adoption, or older children. I would love to create a ceremony that reflects and captures the essence of your special family.
