When I was told this volunteer experience is one to remember, I was curious to see how great it actually was.  I can truly say without hesitation that this experience was about and beyond all expectations.  My favorite part has to be meeting and getting to know the families.  The energy and excitement of seeing the families is tremendous.  The kids' energy was courageous and the information that the families were willing to share was helpful.  My family was open and kind and easy going.  I can truly say I will never forget my first retreat but I look forward to the many other retreats to come!
