My Dream Came True

I wanted to create an environment for Fireweed Retreat where birth moms felt safe but not forced to share their stories; something I knew I would have needed in my most raw years after placing my daughter for adoption (over 18 years ago). 

Equally as important to me is an environment where birth mothers who may not know Jesus can feel just as seen, honored and respected as much as Christ-following birth mothers while receiving a weekend filled with pampering, validation, Biblical truth, and Christ-centered tools for their self-care tool belts.

About The Retreat

Image
The Fireweed Retreat for Birth Moms is a Christ-centered retreat for only natural/first/birth mothers who are looking to connect with other women who placed and are wanting to find the hope of Jesus in their stories. We were filled to capacity this year!    
 
The cost to attend the 3rd Annual Fireweed Retreat was only $20.00 thanks to an adult adoptee, Dale Benington who provided financial support in loving memory of his birth mom. Every participant enjoyed a cottage (with one roommate) with a private bathroom, seating area, and kitchen on the shores of beautiful Lake Erie, and guest speakers, crafts, activities, a plethora of snacks, and all meals. 
 
Registration for the 4th Annual Fireweed Retreat will be posted here in the Spring of 2023. All are Welcome! Please note: Age of birth mother, year of placement, adoption status (closed, open, reunited, etc.), and agency, attorney, or services in which one placed does not impact a birth mother's invite. (but space is limited).
