In a few weeks we will once again have the privilege of taking part in The Refresh Conference in Redmond, Washington. Refresh is amazing, refreshing, rejuvenating, empowering, overwhelming, encouraging, and enlightening! It is a conference like no other.

We believe The Refresh Conference is the best conference in the world for foster and adoptive parents. The reason is simple: They’re not afraid to be real and honest about the struggles, frustrations, pain, and defeat that foster care and adoptive parents face on a daily basis. Joining together with 1500 people who “get it” brings healing and strength like you cannot imagine!

This video was the conference opener last year. It captures perfectly, and humorously, what Refresh is all about, what this blog is all about, and the empowering truth of being a foster or adoptive parent- You are NOT alone!

Registration is filling up fast for Refresh 2016. We’re just a few short weeks away. Join us. You won’t regret it!
