A HUGE THANK YOU! to the beautiful people on the Orphan Care Team at our church for getting the word out about a conference for adoptive moms that is taking place just north of Atlanta the last weekend in March! The organization putting on the conference is:
Here's a little about them from their website:

A time for retreat…

Created for Care is a non-profit ministry designed to encourage, equip and bring rest to adoptive families through yearly retreats. Because leaving little ones can be difficult, we began our ministry with retreats for moms--but we record all of the sessions so both parents can benefit from the time of encouragement and insight shared from counselors and other adoptive moms. Our retreats always fill up quickly, and we truly believe God is in the midst of doing something amazing through them. He loves orphans too much to leave them orphans. And He loves your family too much to not lead you, love you and carry you on the rest of your journey as you raise your sons and daughters for His glory. Come join us at the next retreat...
The first retreat they planned for January filled up in just 9 hours so they decided to have a second retreat in March- and I'm going! According to the website there are still 70-some spots available so if you know of anyone that might be interested in attending please share this link with them.
I can't wait and hope to see some of you there!

I have thought about going to this, but I just don't know if I can afford it!!! My friend Carla just went to the one they just had and told me I HAVE to go!
