Baby Welcoming Ceremony for Andrew

Baby Andrew Naming Picture CollageAndrew’s Baby Welcoming Ceremony was inspired by the beginning of the fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty where everyone in the Kingdom came and offered the new baby a spiritual gift.

His family was invited to a party and asked to bring a spiritual gift, blessing or talent that they wished for Andrew.  They could write this blessing on  paper or a picture or drawing or some other representation of this gift.  At the gathering each person presented their gift and explained what they wished for Andrew.  This was a very touching and often humorous presentation, enjoyed by all.
