Adoptive & Foster Moms Retreat (on-site)

October 8, 2023 | Sunday, 9:30 a.m.—3:00 p.m. CDT

facilitated by Mary Kay Whitacre
Suggested donation: $35

We know that as an adoptive and/or foster mom, you experience both unique blessings and challenges in your extraordinary family setting. It can sometimes feel isolating or at the very least leave you with a sense of not knowing where to turn for resources or support. Join us for an uplifting and hope-filled retreat experience where you are invited to be a part of this network of support where everyone benefits from each other’s daily experiences, lived wisdom, knowing compassion, and shared information. We will go to Mass with the Benedictine sisters, have brunch, and experience meaningful connection as we enjoy an afternoon of sharing and caring. Together we are more.

Please register by October 1. Once we have received your registration, we will send you a confirmation for the retreat. We strongly encourage you to add to your email contacts to ensure the delivery of emails regarding your retreat.
