The setting of Phoebe’s Naming Ceremony was perfect at Old Forde House in Newton Abbot.  All the family were there to wish Phoebe heartfelt wishes for a long, happy life.  Other important people made promises to Phoebe including four Guiding Parents, Grandparents, her sister and brother and her parents.

An old African saying states ‘It takes a whole village to raise a child’. In our complex world, even the most loving and capable parents benefit from help in raising their children. 

I asked all her family and friends:


Do you welcome Phoebe into your lives and promise to support and encourage her in all she does? 

They all replied YES!
