At the Danthonia Bruderhof, where we live, several families have recently welcomed babies. As a community, we share in celebrating the joy each new life brings. In this video, we describe how we welcome babies into the wider family of community, and join the parents in working to nurture and protect each child.
About us: We’re the parents of three sons and live at Danthonia Bruderhof, a Christian community in northern New South Wales, Australia, and enjoy discussing our faith, family, food (Norann’s an awesome cook!), and the day-to-day adventures of life in “the bush”.
