As we stroll through the crisp winter air, sipping hot chocolate in the Christmas city of Bethlehem, we are surrounded by the holiday spirit; lights and decorations on every street corner, carriage rides passing and shopping bags rustling.
At the end of the day, after all the gifts have been wrapped and the stockings are hung, parents, grandparents and children unite to celebrate the greatest gift of all: family.
Families will spend the holiday season renewing traditions like writing an annual letter to loved ones, sending cards, baking goodies, singing Christmas carols and lighting the menorah. As we evolve, families may also build new traditions such as Elf on a Shelf or phone apps that allow children to receive calls and texts from Santa.
All family units, whether yours is a blended, extended, foster or adoptive family, bring culture and create traditions of their own. Some may rejoice to celebrate in prayer, others may commit to volunteering their time to help those in need, and some may be excited to share a new recipe at the cookie table.
This holiday season, we at KingSpry offer our sincere greetings to all families, however they may be formed, because home is where the HEART is.
Our hearts are especially with all the families we helped to form through our adoptive legal services this past year, because family is our greatest gift. Having an attorney involved in the family formation process is important to ensure that your family is secure in your future endeavors.
We thank you for the gifts you bring in trusting us to secure your families’ future. On behalf of our Adoption Law Practice, we wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year!
