It is often said that babies are a gift from heaven. Children are sweet angels sent from God for us to enjoy and care for here on earth. Indeed, babies are a blessing, and there is much rejoicing in heaven and on earth at their miraculous births. While this is definitely a time of celebration, it is also a time of thanksgiving as parents, grandparents, extended family and friends commemorate and dedicate the baby to God.
