Our mission here at Lakes Area Adoption Support is to encourage and bless local foster-to-adopt/adoptive families in the Detroit Lakes, MN and surrounding Area.
About the founders.
We are Jeff & Lori Kenney. We’ve been married 37 years and have done foster care for 13 years. We have one biological child and were also blessed to adopt 4 children, all of them now ages 21-33. We’ve also fostered more than a dozen foster kids while building our family through adoption.
WHY WE STARTED THE MINISTRY
We began an annual adoptive moms retreat in 2018 after going through some very difficult times with one of our own children and wanting to help others navigate the often lonely journey raising their children who were adopted from foster care with a traumatic genetic history or early childhood trauma. With God's help, we desire to be the hands and feet of Jesus to other foster-to-adopt/adoptive families in the Detroit Lakes and surrounding areas.
