We have retreat dates!!!

Ok mommas…whether you have adopted already OR you are in the process of adopting…or you just KNOW adoption is in your family’s future…this retreat is for YOU! I am so excited to announce we have RETREAT DATES for the VERY FIRST “Created to Care Women’s Retreat”! This year’s theme is “Love Will Hold Us Together”—and if you have adopted you know this is SO true! Adoption moms surround one another–encourage each other…mourn together through the hard times and REJOICE together when we bring our babes home and see them begin to THRIVE in their new families!!!

Now…there will be LIMITED SPACE AVAILABLE, and we are hoping to start registration NEXT WEEK…so STAY TUNED so you can be the first to register…take advantage of the early registration discount…and secure yourself a spot!!! I can’t wait to tell you ALL about the breakouts, special guests (I am still in shock they are available and how excited they were to join us!)…and of course my personal favorite–the DESSERTS AND FELLOWSHIP! We even have a FUN t-shirt we will be selling to cover additional retreat costs in order to keep your retreat more affordable! SO…mark your calendar and STAY TUNED! This is one weekend YOU WILL NOT WANT TO MISS!

Isn’t this place whispering, “Come awayyyyyyyyyy with me…”?!Be sure to tell your adoption momma friends so they get sign up before it fills up!!! We are holding 100 spots—but when you hear the details next week…I know it will fill up fast! SO…share this fabulous news with all your adoption momma friends…decide whether you want to room solo OR go ahead and tell your close adoption momma friends and you can save by rooming together (there are LOTS of rooms with 2 queen beds!)…and if you want to be really CRAZY you can get 4 mommas to room together and slumber party and really save on your weekend! DOESN’T THIS SOUND LIKE SOOOO MUCH FUN?!

AND check out our super cool retreat fundraiser shirt…Special thanks to Brad Senter of DESIGNsenter for creating our amazing shirt!!! SO TRUE…it is LOVE that creates our families!!! And the really cool thing about this shirt—is that if you read the RED only–it says “love a orphan”! Cool, huh?! You know you want one;-). When you buy one, it goes toward our retreat costs allowing these mommas to come be blessed and encouraged as they follow the Lord in growing their family through adoption!!! They will be up for sale soon as soon as our retreat registration begins!

Yea!!!! So excited and wish we could sign up today!!!!! (Feel free to just stick my name on the list:)

Megan - October 14, 2010 - 4:15 pm

LOVE this!!! Wish I could commit to go, but chances are I will be traveling to Ethiopia around that time. Pretty good excuse not to come though, right?!? 😉 But 2012, I’m gonna get a group of my adoptive mama friends and we’re all gonna go together…so this better become an annual thing! =)

chrissy - October 14, 2010 - 7:13 pm

How much will it be? That’s just 5 hours from home! 😉

Rebecca Harley - October 14, 2010 - 7:40 pm

I am with Megan – hoping to be in Ethiopia (would love love love to go together:) – but definitely next year. Or, maybe if the list moves with lightening speed and we get a referral soon:) Never know!! What an awesome way to bring such an incredible group of momma’s together!!

admin - October 14, 2010 - 7:57 pm

Yep…if you get your referral by December 1st—it would be tight! But after December 1st…I think you are safe to plan a trip to the ATL!

Sonya Weese - October 14, 2010 - 7:58 pm

What is the cost?

Mandy - October 14, 2010 - 8:16 pm

🙂 Okay a couple questions! Can any adoptive momma come? Our daughter is adopted but she is not from Ethopia? 🙂 ..Also can you make the shirts in reg. t-shirt so us bigger adoptive momma’s can order them! Reg T-s are so much better for us! LOL

Jennifer - October 14, 2010 - 8:58 pm

You don’t mess around girlfriend! Love how you pulled this together! I have to figure out a way to come!!! Sounds like a great winter break from MN to me! 🙂

Kristin - October 14, 2010 - 9:12 pm

Love this, and girl, I am so there! Just talked to the hubby and it’s on the calendar! Cannot wait!!! THANK YOU for doing this! We mommas need this and we need each other. Happy weekend – mine is now off to a GREAT start! 🙂

Keely - October 14, 2010 - 9:39 pm

very very excited… cant wait to hear more details… this just might need to be my birthday present!

Mary Beth - October 14, 2010 - 10:09 pm

Just reading about this brought tears to my eyes. Sounds like heaven to this tired adoptive momma. Plus, my in-laws live only 15 minutes from this place! Perfect! I’m definitely there!

Jenny - October 14, 2010 - 10:30 pm

Talking to one of my besties (who is also an adoptive mom) about heading to GA for this! So excited that you were able to pull this together!

Asher Collie - October 14, 2010 - 10:50 pm

Wait! Exciting! This looks awesome! Where can I find more details? Is this for already adopted moms…or moms like me in the middle of an adoption? Where in GA is this and when?

Asher Collie - October 14, 2010 - 10:51 pm

Oh wow! Somehow I MISSED the whole first have of the post! Sorry!! Don’t know where it was on my computer. 🙂
