About this event

We are so excited to be hosting our annual retreat this year in person and hope you consider joining us for a weekend of learning, connection, and healing. We have some terrific sessions planned with authors, therapists, filmmakers, and legislative advocates. But don't worry, we have plenty of time baked in to just relax and connect with each other, something we know is always important to our retreat attendees. We welcome anyone to attend our retreat including birth/first mothers, fathers, siblings, adoptees, adoptive families, and professionals who work with our community.

Here's a look at our schedule so far. Please note that like anything these days, it is subject to change but we'll try to keep this as up to date as possible. You will also find information about our hotel and air/ground transportation.

Organizer Concerned United Birthparents (CUB)

Organizer of 2021 Concerned United Birthparents' (CUB) Retreat

Concerned United Birthparents (CUB) is the only national organization focused on birthparents - our experiences, healing and wisdom. CUB serves all those touched by adoption and all who are concerned about adoption issues. Although our focus is on birthparents, long the forgotten people of the adoption community, we welcome adoptees, adoptive parents, and professionals. We find that we all have much to learn from each other and that sharing our feelings and experiences benefits all of us.
