2017 Participant Family Member
September Oak Island, NC
Before the retreat, I never got to spend much time with my brothers or mother, partly due to being so busy, and partly to my own selfishness. At the retreat, I got to spend quality time with them, and had an amazing time. It felt really good to hear my youngest brother say the best part to him was spending time with his brothers. That meant the most to me. For a while, I thought he still had some resentments because of my past, but I feel a lot better now. I loved actually doing stuff instead of just sitting being lazy, and it was amazing to see how happy my mother was to see us spend time together. I’ve never seen so much joy in her, and it meant so much. Something all of us needed bad. That was a week I will NEVER forget.
