An adoption celebration ceremony is a way to celebrate the unity of family. Adoption is a different way of becoming a parent and many of the rituals such as baptism, christening and naming ceremonies, which a biological parent may participate in, are missing from adoptive parenthood. Several factors make these rituals more difficult for adopting parents. An adoption celebration ceremony is an unique way to welcome your child officially, into your family, after adoption has been legalised by the courts. The adoption celebration ceremony can include a naming ceremony as well. As part of the adoption party celebration we could also use a candles and water, as a way of representing the unity of the family.
