This is a great event to do during advent or even the nine months prior to Christmas. Spiritually adopt a baby in that each time you meet you discuss how far along this “pretend” baby is, how it is developing, etc. You give it a name and at Christmas time, when we celebrate the birth of Christ, the group is able to draw more deeply into the life of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.
