Name Changing Day

by Angela Rockwood

Name changing day is a Rockwood tradition. In our family when a new member comes into the family, they
receive a new name.

In preparation for adoption, our two daughters chose today as their special name changing day. This day is a day of celebration and much anticipated. A name is something precious, a gift. In adoption, we promise to love and value each family member, as if they had been born to us. While we may not share biology, we can share a common faith and rich heritage through this special gift. These are the names our daughters received today. Each name is rich in personal meaning for our family.

Welcome Ava Victoria and Lily Adeline Rockwood!
