Hey Mama is a weekend retreat designed specifically for foster|adoptive moms. Join others who understand the highlights and lowlights of foster care|adoption for a weekend filled with messages of encouragement, breakout sessions, fun, moments of surprise, and rest.
We will be staying in the beautiful Embassy Suites downtown, indulging in a stunning dinner at the Governor's mansion with First Lady Stitt, you will be hearing a powerful message from Jason Johnson, and you will experience intentional moments meant to encourage and refresh you. You will be invited to participate in fun activities and probably some late night shenanigans curated to make you laugh and relax. Bring a foster|adoptive mom friend or two, or come with the anticipation to create new relationships. Most importantly, come with the expectation to leave refreshed and renewed.
Date & Time: October 8 - 9, 2021. Check-in is on Friday, October 8 at 3:00pm and last session will take place late Saturday afternoon/early evening. (Check out of the hotel will be noon on Saturday, the hotel will accommodate your luggage if needed.)
