Meet the Unglesby family– parents Trey and Rachel and their daughter, Emma Kate (who has a rare disability, Twoq 37 deletion syndrome) who attended Family Retreat! Rachel told us. “We feel so normal here… we built a community of families who understand us.” She added, “This is what heaven is going to look like…”

Family retreat is amazing! My children are now adults and they are less affected by their disability than many of the others, but they are not normal. It's so relaxing not to have to explain why they don't talk or why some things are hard for them. At retreat they are just loved and celebrated. I would encourage any family affected by disability to go. You will never be the same again.

My cousin Sharon was born with numerous disabilities. She has a nurse at night time to help with tracheotomy. During the day it’s just her and her brother that stops in to help. She lost her mom and dad to cancer and her brother to renal failure. She hasn’t been anywhere for years. This might be wonderful for her!
