A Guide to Creating Adoption Traditions

I am a bit of a tradition nut. Something about stitching years and events together with common elements just makes me feel comfortable. As we approached out first adoption of our twin boys, I started looking for ideas to celebrate their special day. While I was surprised at how little I found, I was also so excited to start creating our own traditions and find ways to celebrate the beautiful and unique way our family came together. Here are a few of ours – some that we do on the day of the adoption ceremony for each child, and some that we do each year. Does your family have any special adoption traditions? Share your own ideas in the comments section – I’d love to hear about them!
