Three weeks from tomorrow I will depart on what I’ve now named “The Fall Tour.”
It started with being invited to do a breakout at the Together for Adoption Conference in Atlanta on September 14th. This is my third year to attend and second year to do a breakout. I love these conferences – meeting other adoptive families and orphan care professionals feels like coming home.
Then I found out just a few weeks later that Jon Acuff scheduled one of his Quitter Conferences for the following weekend. I google mapped the distance between Atlanta and Nashville in about 3.4 seconds. I’ve wanted to attend Quitter since the first one but the travel cost made it kind of expensive. The actual conference is only about $100.
I gave my husband my best pretty-please puppy-dog eyes and asked if I could just stay over. I have a friend in Atlanta so my lodging was cheap and I thought maybe I could schedule 1 or 2 Adopt Without Debt Workshops to fill in the time.
Before I knew it I had four more workshops lined up with one more still being finalized.
You can see the complete details on my Upcoming Events page, but here’s the quick overview. If you’re in one of these towns I’d love to see you at the event.
