Reagan's Infant Dedication Ceremony



Steve and I are so blessed to have found a wonderful church here in Charlotte.  The belief here is that baptism should take place when individuals are old enough to make that conscious decision for themselves.  So as infants, they offer what is called an infant dedication ceremony.  This is an opportunity for the parents to make a public commitment to raising their child in the Christian Faith.  Steve, Reagan, and I took part in this ceremony last night, and it was very special to all of us.  Three other infants were also dedicated, and all four of their pictures were projected onto big screens in the background.  Our pastor held each child and prayed for them individually.  We were so happy to have Grandma Denise and Aunt Karly there for the ceremony.  Karly and Andrew have agreed to be Reagan's Godparents, and we are so thankful for that.  Reagan slept through most of the ceremony in Steve's arms, but she seemed very content.
