One Day Retreat:  This annual event is held in the spring and is a very special day for our bereaved moms to take a break from their everyday routine, renew their spirit and relax in beautiful surroundings.

Our 2017 theme was The Birdhouse Project:  This interactive experience empowered us to grow through the tragedy we have experienced in the death of our child.  During our program a correlation was drawn between building a birdhouse, with each piece of our project having a special meaning, and rebuilding our lives.  At the end of the day, we actually built a birdhouse to take home with us as a reminder of the new purpose we now have.

Information about our 2018 one-day retreat will be posted on our website in early 2018.
