Donovan was baptized a Nativity Catholic Church in Brandon, Florida on November 30, 2014. Doug and I were both raised in Christian homes so we knew that we wanted to pass our faith on to our children.
We were fortunate to have Doug’s Mom visit for the special occasion as well as many other special family and friends.
Father Gregg, who married me and Doug, was able to come up from Boynton Beach to perform the ceremony. He was incredibly helpful to Doug and I as we were deciding all of the details of the ceremony. Father Gregg has always been so thoughtful as he has supported both of our faith backgrounds.
Donovan wore the Christening gown that has been in my family for many years. A replica was made from the gown that me and my sisters wore for our baptisms.
Leah, Kristin, and Adam are Donovan’s Godparents. Leah did a great job representing the group in the ceremony. We missed Kristin and Adam!
We held a reception at our house after the ceremony. Some people still had not seen our house, so it was nice to host an event and celebrate Donovan’s baptism.
