Entrustment Ceremony

An Entrustment Ceremony is a ritual in which an adopted child is placed by his or her birth parent(s) with an adoptive family. The ritual signifies the transference of parental responsibilities from the birth to the adoptive parents and helps solidify the role that each individual in the adoption triad will play. It is one way of defining birth parents and adoptive parent roles and creating a sense of closure in the adoption.

Entrustment ceremonies can be customized according to the desires and situations of all parties involved.
