even be 12yrs old by now. Some were even hat minding during the silent auction bidding.

Sparkles on the sweet treats from the gloriously gorgeous high tea, were spread on and over babies

and small children.

Bubbles and birds on the viewing deck were loved by the small children – Ella, Ruby, Bodhi and


Waiting till the end of the festivities, outside on the lawn, close family stayed with the mothers who

were part of the White Dove Release.

When the birds were held in hands. The music opened the ceremony. Paul Cardall’s emotion filled

soundtrack of Gracie’s Theme stirred emotions and resonated with the moment. In the change of

and a white keepsake feather.
