The 2nd Annual REST for the Moms Retreat for Adoptive & Foster Moms will be held September 15-16 at First Baptist Church of Newnan.
Keynote speaker for the 2017 REST Retreat will be Melanie Dale. Melanie is a minivan mama to three kids from three different continents – one from Ethiopia, one from Latvia, and one the new-fashioned way with lots of science. She’s a total weirdo who stinks at small talk, her laugh is a combination honk-snort, and it’s so bad that people have moved away from her in the movie theater. She adores sci-fi and superheroes and is terrified of Pinterest. Author of Women Are Scary: The Totally Awkward Adventure of Finding Mom Friends and It’s Not Fair: Learning to Love the Life You Didn’t Choose, she’s also a contributor for Coffee+Crumbs, a panelist on MomsEveryday TV, and an advocate for orphaned and vulnerable children through HopeChest. Living in the Atlanta area, she enjoys recording her podcast, Lighten Up with Melanie Dale, and blogging at unexpected.org.
Cost for the retreat is $50.00* and space is limited to 75 moms, so register early! Full payment is required at time of registration and is non-refundable but is transferable to another adoptive or foster mom should you not be able to attend. Be sure to join the REST for the Moms Facebook Group to get updates on all things REST!
