Happy Wednesday, everyone!

We had an amazing retreat weekend (#155!) to kick off our year at the FFA Leadership and Training Center! We met some great families who have a child with autism spectrum disorder. Each year this is a challenging but rewarding experience. It requires many volunteers who have expertise working with children who have special needs. It is amazing to provide these families an opportunity where their kids can be in a nurturing environment and feel "normal" for a bit. This weekend allowed families to meet others going through similar circumstances and day to day challenges. This weekend also helped families forget about the every day stresses, embrace each other as a family, and rekindle spirits through fun, therapeutic activities all weekend long. At the same time, families were also able to learn about different resources around Florida that are incredibly beneficial as well as create friendships and connections with other families going through this similar situation. What an amazing weekend!
