Fireweed Retreat

The third annual Fireweed Retreat will be
September 23rd - 25th, 2022!

To register visit 

- Fireweed Retreat is founded by author, Jennifer Mae. The retreat is named after her book (See book for a description of the flower, Fireweed, and its significance)

- Fireweed Retreat is a Christ-center retreat for only Natural/First/Birthmothers looking to connect with other women who placed and are wanting to find the hope of Jesus in their stories.

- Age of Birthmother, year of placement, and adoption status (closed, open, reunited, etc.), and agency, attorney, or services in which one placed does not impact a first mother's invite- all are welcome (but space is limited).

Our second annual (first in person) retreat was a huge success! We gathered together at Beulah Beach in Vermillion, Ohio to learn about our identities in Jesus alone, not in our past or current circumstances. 
We also heard from speaker Laurel Bruhl on healthily navigating triggers. She gave us Biblical affirmations and Christ-centered mindfulness activities. We laughed, we cried and we all around enjoyed being together with sisters-in-triad and sisters-in-Christ.
