The new addition of a baby brings a whole new dimension to your family.
Baby dedication is as important a rite of passage for your child as it is for you. You are making a public commitment to partner God in stewarding the life of your child, fulfilling the calling you have as a new parent.
You now have an added identity as a mom or dad. Yet, you are still a child of God, so as you busy yourself with another human being, remember to care for yourself as well.
Recognize the unique contribution of mothers and fathers in nurturing and validating your child's worth and identity.
