The CUB Retreat is a unique experience for birthparents, adoptees, adoptive parents and others affected by adoption. There are interesting and insightful speakers, both professional and those speaking from the heart about their own experiences with adoption. There will be great entertainment and lots of laughs as well as tears. If you have never met a birthparent, or perhaps never met another birthparent in person, the retreat is a wonderful opportunity to connect in the real world with online friends, and to put a face to words and voices. If you have attended our retreats before, you already know what a healing experience they can be, for all whose lives have been affected by adoption — and how wonderful it is to meet old and new friends. The program and setting by the sea are superb, but the real gift of our retreat is the people you will meet and connect with there.
Because it's a big country, we split our retreats between the East and West Coasts to make it as easy as possible for everyone to attend. In 2018, we met in Safety Harbor, FL (near Tampa), and now in 2019, we'll be nestled beside the Pacific. Location: Portofino Hotel & Marina, 260 Portofino Way, Redondo Beach, CA 90277
