Taya just turned 8 years old which means it's time for her to choose whether or not to be baptized a member of our church or not. In our church you can get baptized any time after you turn 8. Some people are baptized at 8 years old, others wait until their teenage years, & others don't get baptized until they are adults. Taya has been anxiously awaiting for this day. We are very excited & proud of her for making this grown up decision.
She is getting baptized on Saturday, October 8th at our church building in Suffolk, VA. Her Mimi & Baba bought her a beautiful white dress to wear to symbolize the clean feeling you get when your sins are washed away.
She looks like a beautiful little princess in her dress. I can't wait to see her Saturday morning. It's going to be a beautiful day.
