Adoption Ceremony Between 3-Year-Old & New Parents Will Give You the Feels

Family creates beautiful ring ceremony during adoption There are so many reasons to celebrate a child entering your life. Jamie and Arthur Hodge are so thrilled to legally call Todd their own. Once foster parents to the 3-year-old, the couple had an adoption ceremony ring exchange with Todd -- and it is one of the most beautiful things you'll see.


Jamie and Arthur have their little boy to thank for this idea -- seeing as he was inspired by his parents' wedding photos. Todd might be small in size, but he wondered why he wasn't in such loving portraits. In celebration of the adoption finalization ceremony, Jamie and Arthur decided to put a sweet spin on the wedding ring exchange.

They say diamonds are forever, but Todd's infinity ring will last just as long -- and represents the eternal bond he'll have with his mom and dad.


What a cute and creative idea.

I thought the judge presiding over the adoption ceremony was cool with her pink wand (it lights up), but this right here takes things to a new level. I love how the Hodges found a way to personalize their experience, and help reiterate their bond and what family means to them. It was very creative and personal, which will surely make for a beautiful memory for time to come.

Thank you for allowing us to be witness to your special day!
