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 originial 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 Clearwater, FL. Located on the west side of Tampa Bay,  our venue in Clearwater offers stunning views, nearby restaurants, the Clearwater Marine Aquarium (Home of Winter the Dolphin from “Dolphin Tale”) and walking distance to the beach!  We can’t wait for you to come and relax in our little piece of paradise!


What’s New?

Our Seas The Hope in 2022 Auction wrapped up on April  at 8:00 EST. Thank you to those who supported us and gave our their resources to make it a success! Stay tuned for our Fall 2022 auction in October!

This year in addtion to raising funds for our own operations, we decided to give to other deserving organizations as well. We chose three non-profits that we believe in and that share the vision of STC in serving foster and adoptive families.

The first organzation we are supporting is New Life Solutions in Largo, FL. New Life exists in three different programs. More 2 Life, a youth development program, A Women’s Place medical clinic that helps young women in crisis pregnancy and Passages of Hope an abortion recovery ministry. New Life’s mission is to protect the unborn, share the Gospel, and transform our communities, one life at a time.
Their annual fundrasier, Walk for Life, is May 8, 2021 where they ask for sponsors at various levels and participants to walk and raise funds. If you would like to donate directly or find out more about New Life Solutions please see their website at www.newlifesolutions.org
 
 
The second organzation we are granting part of our proceedes to is Life Source Marriage and Family Care.
For those of you who were at the 2021 retreat, you know how calming and wise our Keynote Speaker Anna Lee is! So we are thrilled to be to supporting her ministry!
CTEN missionaries Dallas and Anna Lee Ward offer Biblical discipleship that brings comfort to the hurting, help for the depressed, and direction for conforming to God’s will in every area of life. They provide distance (Skype) or person-to-person discipleship and crisis counseling to missionaries, pastors and ministry leaders serving cross-culturally in the USA and around the world, as well as to individuals and families in crisis in the USA.
They also facilitate times of refreshing, marriage enrichment or crisis intervention at Selah House, a “safe place” established to provide missionary and pastoral retreat housing and intensive counseling for individuals or couples in crisis. Here individuals are strengthened in their relationship with God, their spouse, family members and mission team members, while becoming more equipped to effectively disciple others. And the real exciting part is that they have recently made Selah House open to adoptive and foster families for times of respite as well!
The mission is to encourage individuals to grow in maturity in Christ, while also equipping them to more effectively reach and genuinely love others.

The third organization were are helping support is Cornerstone For Orphans.
Cornerstone for orphans is a Global Humanitarian non-profit (501c3) started by an adoptive mother who felt led to keep doing more for the most. After adopting her 2 daughters and now was a mother to 5; adoption was no longer an option for her family. And there Cornerstone for orphans was born!!!
Cornerstone for orphans is a platform helping orphans, widows, lepers, and families of poverty have a voice, dignity, independent, access to education, clean water, adequate nutrition, and protection of their human rights. Bring hope and value to orphans and families all over the world.
To date our ministry works with people in need, in India, Uganda, Haiti and America.
We believe to really fight the orphan crisis is to provide assistance to intact families, keeping them together, keeping children out of orphanages.
We do all of this out of our love for Jesus and His ultimate sacrifice for us! Everyone we provide assistance to is also shown God’s great love for them, our hope is to spread God’s love to everyone we meet, letting them know they are known and loved by Him!!!
