Called to Love Retreat
Called to Love is a retreat for adoptive and foster moms. The purpose of the retreat is to provide renewal, connection and encouragement in the unique journey of parenting an adopted or foster child. As a Christ-focused ministry, our desire is to bring imperfect mamas closer to a perfect God. Moms in any stage of the process are welcome, but the weekend will be especially beneficial as post-placement support.
