About The Retreat

Image
Fireweed Retreat 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 have room for 20 attendees for our September 23rd-25th retreat. As of 6/13/22, there are 5 spots still open for birth moms to register. The cost to attend is $95 which includes a cottage 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. 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). 
 
*The Benington-Duty Scholarship is available for any mom with a need for financial assistance. See Registration for more details.

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.
