Created for Care

I was blessed (So Blessed! Thank you husband!) to go away to Georgia this past weekend to the Created for Care retreat for adoption mamas. It was at the Legacy Lodge on Lake Lanier and it was beautiful. Last year there were 250 of us that met, this year there was 430 with an additional retreat in March. It was crazy wild to see that many moms that God has called to adopt all in the same room worshipping together. We were welcomed to the lodge by beautiful signs, goody bags and lots of smiles.The view was beautiful too..Here was one of the main sessions. We had three main sessions, many breakout sessions, a movie about Uganda, an adoption & chocolate time.. It was pretty awesome

Here are two of the reasons I look so tired in the photo above! My roommates for the weekend Candy and Erin. Candy is an adoptive mom to three and brought her little girl home this summer just a few weeks after we came home. Erin is #2 on the list for a baby boy! We are expecting that exciting phone call for her SOON! We had a great time staying up LATE talking and laughing.
This is part of the America World family. There were a few other AWAA moms there, but this was Sunday morning before we all left and a few were not around. It was such a blessing to be around these women and feel the passion and excitement for adoption and orphan care.

I drove back home on Sunday to a clean house, happy kids and lots of hugs...( have I mentions Greg Mullis might be Superman! ) Cant wait to go again next year. Thanks so much Andrea and your team for putting on the best retreat ever!
