I am so excited that I will be going on a vacation with my husband Ken soon.

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada and I am so excited that I will be going on a vacation with my husband Ken soon. Now, when you have a disability, taking a break from the challenging day-to-day routines is so necessary. It’s what I love about our Family Retreats (they are five-day summer camps for families with special needs). It’s a place where parents get much-needed respite and kids with disabilities have fun! And it’s where we connect with mothers like Jamie, who has a daughter with spina bifida. When talking with Jamie, she said, “Lizzie’s days are filled with physical therapy, medical visits, doctor’s appointments, and more … It’s why seeing Lizzie just be a kid at Family Retreat is so wonderful.” Oh friend, we all need a break — especially, special-needs families. Learn how you can make a difference by visiting our Family Retreat page at joniandfriends.org.
