Because both of my grandmothers are/were Catholic, it was important to them that I be baptized as an infant. Not to get too far into my beliefs right now, all I’ll say is that neither my husband nor I are Catholic. We are Christians and we do go to church, but we think it should be a choice…one that Miles is too young to make for himself.
That said, we did participate in a Child Dedication ceremony at church on Sunday. Pretty much, it just means that we as a family and church commit to do our best to raise him (and the other kids that participated) well. Having and raising a child is a HUGE responsibility, and it’s so great to know that we have a whole community of people that will love and care for Miles along with us.
And then these happened…
