Why attend a
CUB Retreat? 

Safety Harbor, FL
October 17 - 19, 2014



Concerned United Birthparents (CUB) is the only national organization focused on birthparents – their 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.

Each year, CUB hosts a healing retreat for all members of the adoption triad, and all who are interested in learning more about the adoption experience.  We usually meet by the shore so there is beauty and space for reflection and rest in between our sessions.  You won’t find the schedule packed with too many choices.  We focus on a core program so we can make the most of our annual time together.

On February 4, 2014 our very own Leslie Pate Mackinnon was on the Katie Couric Show. Katie explored the topic of women being forced to give up their babies with Philomena from Ireland and Leslie from Atlanta. Leslie shared her experience of being forced to give up her son in the "Baby Scope Era." Many of us know the pain of being forced to relinquish a child.
