When you made the decision to foster or adopt, you joined the heart of God in His beautiful mission to be a “father to the fatherless”. But as you know, accepting this call is an invitation to a battle that requires great sacrifice. This weekend will remind us why creating family for our children is worth our lives, give us tools to engage with greater effectiveness and joy, and encourage us to rekindle the love and passion for our spouse. This retreat is designed to be just that…a retreat. Come and receive encouragement, rest, and a refocus on God’s amazing plan for your family.
