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.
One-on-one conversation time with Lori. Plan a time to talk and relax at our lake home or a local coffee shop. I'd like to offer you a listening ear and my personal experience to help guide you to resources during your adoption journey. Just fill out the form below to get started!
We have built an extensive lending library at our home, and have built up a supply of books that have been recommended by other adoptive parents, along with books that have personally helped us. If you would like to borrow any books click the button below to email Lori!
Adoptive moms, dads, or couples are invited to come and spend all or part of a day just getting away from the hustle and bustle of life at our private cabin retreat. We have a small cabin for a day or overnight use along with a small beach on our 8 acre property.
About the founders.
We are Jeff & Lori Kenney. We’ve been married 36 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 20-32. 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 who has FASD, and wanting to help others navigate through raising their children who were adopted from hard places. 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.
