An adoption ceremony can be held for a child of any age (or any adult for that matter) who is being adopted into a new family. The ceremony may involve only the adopting family, or it may include the reliquishing parents also.
Ishara will work with you to create a ceremony that can ease the transition and mark this special new beginning.

Pricing & Enquiries
The cost for a custom-designed ceremony of this kind is generally between $300 and $400 which would include a ceremony design consultation (approx 1 hour), the preparation of a customised ceremony outline & script, a visit to your home or chosen ceremony site to confirm logistical arrangements and finalise the ceremony outline, and professional facilitation of your ceremony at the time and place of your choice.
Naturally you want to know that the celebrant you are engaging is a good fit with your values and personal style. The best way to figure out whether I am the right celebrant for you is to speak with me!
I recognise that choosing a celebrant is an important decision, so if you prefer to meet face to face I’m happy to make an appointment to for a cuppa (in the Fremantle area) so you can check me out and talk to me about your situation.
