For those of you who have attended a Created for Care retreat, you know we LOVE kicking off the weekend celebrating what the Lord has done and is going to do in our adoption journeys. It is always so encouraging to see family after family---truly a STORY behind EVERY picture!!!
If you are signed up to attend the MARCH 2012 retreat--we would LOVE to celebrate your family with you and what the Lord has done and is doing in it! We are requesting 3 portrait categories:
1. WAITING FAMILIES: Please send in a picture that shows your family "waiting" for your next little one/s, pictures of your family in the adoption process or something fun that represents your family's wait (maybe your family holding wait list numbers).
2. GOTCHA DAY/FAMILY DAY If you are already home with your child, send us that picture that still melts your heart of you finally together at last! It can be at the orphanage, an airport homecoming, your family all together once home or the first moment you met your precious one.
3. FINALLY ALL TOGETHER/FAMILY PORTRAITS If you have found the time to finally capture your family all together, please send us your favorite picture of your whole crew! It does NOT have to be a professional picture--just your family all together will be perfect!
Please send no more than 2 pictures--so pick your favorites and email them before March 1, 2012 to firstname.lastname@example.org AND please mark the subject "PICTURES"
If you have any questions please let us know! We will show the slideshow at the retreat--and of course we'll post it here later to for you to share with your friends and family!
Blessings to you all!!!
P.S. If you have NOT booked your room yet--do so TODAY!!! We heard it through the grapevine that there are ONLY 20 rooms left at the resort!!! We will be posting nearby hotels as another option but hopefully everyone has booked their rooms. IF NOT--please do so today!
