I know I want to do something special to signify the 3 of us committing to being a family together, but I don't know what it will be yet... But, like Kelly, I plan to do that privately with the 3 of us, away from the ceremony...

We would have had to make accomodations to have someone come and assist us with her care. We decided that we'd do our low-key destination thing and then do the full family celebration at home and include her fully. I think it will have more meaning for her at home than away.
We've come such a long way as a family and I do want to make sure we celebrate it and give it the reverence it deserves.

This is the family I have always wanted for myself and my daughter.
So to answer your question, my daughter, Morgan, will be a Jr. Bridesmaid. She is wearing white to match me rather than aqua like the rest of the BM's. She will be part of our sand ceremony. And as a surprise Tim is getting her a ring to give to her during the ceremony after we exchange our rings. I know this is going to make my family cry. If you do the math with my age being 27 and my daughter 11 you can see just how young I was. It was a struggle and against everyone's advice I decided to have my daughter and keep her and I thought we were bound to be just the 2 of us forever like the Gilmore Girls but we found someone to love both of us and be a wonderful husband and father so that will definitely be a huge part of my ceremony.
I am pretty sure I am going to have my son and my Dad walk me down the isle. I was originally just wanting my son seeing he has been the "man" of my house, but got the guilt trip from my mom about me being his only daughter. I also really want to do the sand ceremony, I think it is just beautiful. I found these really nice medallions that I want to give to each of the kids. I like the idea of yours Kelly and perhaps doing that part privately. I don't want the whole ceremony to be about the kids but I need to have some for my son. There are just so many great options to choose from.
