One thing I like to do as I get ready for an upcoming retreat is look back at the kind words from families who have attended past retreats. This helps remind me why we are all here and how much these families truly benefit from our program.

Here is a family testimony from our February 2013 craniofacial condition retreat that I found to be particularly touching:

There are not enough kind words to explain how wonderful this retreat has been, or how kind and caring everyone has been. Such an overwhelming feeling knowing that everyone (volunteers, staff, etc.) care enough to give their time, energy, and hearts to all of our families and more families who really need and deserve such a great time. Thank you all so very much.
