Welcome To Seas The Connection

Seas the Connection is an community-based support organization based in Tampa Bay where ALL mothers of adoptive and foster children are welcome .We seek to serve fellow foster and adoptive moms by providing respite retreats in the Tampa Bay area.

Not only are we based in Florida, but we as women and moms recognize the healing power of the sea for both mental and emotional care. Seas The Connection was inspired by our original venue, Little Harbor for its seaside atmosphere and resort amenities as we believe this type of location best meets our goal of providing foster and adoptive moms with the most relaxing and connecting weekend ever!

Come join us for an unforgettable four days connecting with other foster and adoptive moms in Riverview, FL. Located directly in the Tampa Bay region on the Alafia River, our 2023 venue offers a private dock, private beach, putting green, life-sized chess set and private swimming pool and hot tub.   We can’t wait for you to come and relax in our little piece of paradise!
