He Makes All Things Beautiful
I had an amazing, inspiring time with 450 other adoptive mommas at the Created For Care Retreat this past weekend.
The retreat was held at the beautiful Legacy Lodge at Lake Lanier, Georgia:
It was so great to be able to meet so many beautiful AGCI (our adoption agency) mommas all in one place:
My dear friend Ginny and me. Ginny and her husband traveled to Ethiopia with Chris and me on both of our trips.
My sweet friend Mindy and me. Mindy received her referral for a precious baby girl while we were at the retreat!
Tricia, Larisa and me. It was so nice to be able to spend some time with my sister, too, and we had a great trip to Georgia and back. We shed some tears, laughed hysterically, and had a few incidents on the way home that made for a very interesting time! :)
This sign was posted on one of the trees at the resort, and seemed so fitting after a refreshing and restoring weekend:
Themes at the retreat:
This was waiting for me when I got home late Sunday night. It says, "To mom from Ashton, Jordan and Jalen. Welcome home."
And here is the beautiful video that kicked off the weekend. There might even be some familiar faces in it!
I'm already looking forward to going back to Created For Care again in the future!
Have a great day, everyone!
