We are here for you.     

To talk with you, pray with you, and be a listening ear during the sometimes lonely journey of raising children who come from hard places.

LENDING LIBRARY

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!

CABIN RETREAT

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.
