There are many milestones in your family’s life which are worthy of celebration – births, naming days, adoptions and re-commitment ceremonies.
Australia today has many different families and I think it’s unfortunate that the narrative of finding someone important to you is so often limited to romantic stories. I didn’t give birth to my oldest son and someone else cared for him for the first 9 years but we created a strong bond which was independent of my relationship with his father and continued after we separated – in fact for 29 years and I’m still pulling him up on incorrect grammar and he’s still giving me advice on everything from this website to the relationship with my younger children. I want to create celebrations to acknowledge and support some of the less often recognised relationships, like that of step parents and children or the birth of children to parents that are good friends but don’t live together. What is important to you and your family is worthy of celebration!
