We began this heart-warming Adoption Celebration Ceremony @Fulneckgolfclub (thank you to staff member Amy for her warm welcome and enthusiasm ) with the lighting of a candle to remember loved one who could not be with us but who were reflecting their light back to us for guidance and connection.
And what a truly beautiful family welcome this was! Hearts were full to over-flowing with love for this charismatic, charming and cheeky little boy as we welcomed him into his FOREVER FAMILY- this includes mum @emmajane dad @darrenkithching, wonderful big sister E, wonderful big sister
E’s new hamster Night Star and two family doggies, Olive and Basil!
Big sis was a total star herself as she embraced her important status – she insisted on using the microphone to ensure that everyone could hear her own promises for her little brother and she masterminded the sand ceremony, encouraging all 9 contributors to pour their coloured sand into the Forever Family jar in AGE order!
We all ended the ceremony collectively saying the words from the poem
“Lovely Little Boy” – for that Is exactly what he is.
A big thank you to @louisetoni for her fantastic #BritishSignLanguage interpretation of the whole ceremony which she communicated so beautifully.
Then Now Forever
