For this retreat, Kiley is excited to be joined by two beautiful mothers, both of whom have experienced the loss of their babies. Jennifer Kaiton and Catherine Keating attended the RTZ Women's Retreat at Aldermarsh in September 2015. They bring unique gifts to our group and are looking forward to sharing themselves with you.

Kiley is a bereaved mother and occupational therapist living in Los Angeles. Kiley and her husband Sean are creators of the film Return to Zero starring Minnie Driver and Paul Adelstein. It is based on their personal experience of their son Norbert, who was stillborn, and is the first movie to tackle the taboo subject of stillbirth.
Kiley is passionate about raising awareness of perinatal loss and improving the support families receive in the hospital as well as in the community.
Jennifer is a Seattle-based singer, youth ministry coordinator, and mother. After three miscarriages and the stillbirth of her son, she was inspired to share her transformative journey to help others face their pain. Jennifer uses her gift of singing to help bring healing to those in need. You can learn more on her website.
Catherine lives in Seattle, WA with her family. She is a certified yoga instructor as well as an early childhood and special education teacher. She began writing stories at a young age, always knowing she had a story to tell the world. When she lost her first two babies, she discovered what that story was to be—a story of finding joy again after loss. Catherine's first book There Was Supposed To Be a Baby: A Guide to Healing After Pregnancy Loss was published in 2012.
