"This life therefore, is not godliness but the process of becoming godly, not health but getting well, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not now what we shall be, but we are on the way. The process is not yet finished, but it is actively going on. This is not the goal, but it is the right road. At present, everything does not gleam and sparkle, but everything is being cleansed." --Martin Luther

There are still a few openings for the Early Trauma and Attachment Annual Meeting in Orlando, FL this coming March 8-11!!
I gotta tell ya...I have been exctied for this ever since I registered...in June!!!  I have already met moms all over the country and am so thankful for the encouragement and understanding I have already found.  I can't wait to meet them in real life!
If you have any questions, let me know and I will do my best to get them answered.  Otherwise, email Corey at the address below.  Would love to have you join us!
WHAT is ETAAM/Orlando?

ETAAM is a respite retreat designed for moms of kids with attachment (and related) disorders. It first started in 2010 with 9 brave women who flew from all over the US in search of support for their challenging lives. In 2011, 67 women were in attendance (including our first Canadians!) In March 2012, 90 women gathered. ETAAM was created by moms of kids with attachment disorders, and is run solely on a volunteer basis. It has become an invaluable community and an indispensable annual pilgrimage for many attendees.

WHO can attend ETAAM?

ETAAM is primarily for moms of kids with attachment and related disorders (PTSD, ASD, BPD, ADHD, and a host of other alphabet soup diagnoses). We have bio moms, adoptive moms, step moms, foster moms, and other female caregivers. We have moms that are currently parenting, moms whose children are not able to live at home, and moms who no longer have a child with a trauma history in their home. ETAAM is a child-free environment. If you are unsure whether ETAAM is right for you, please email Corey Waters at jcwaters2002@yahoo.com
