Beyond Our Dreams
Uncover hope and peace as you navigate life with a child of special needs.
Couples navigating life raising a child with disabilities can uncover hope and peace through Beyond Our Dreams. Join Brad and Karen Thompson, Founders of The HALI Project, as they speak from their heart, expertise and experience of raising a child with multiple physical and cognitive special needs. In addition to providing much deserved, but oh-so-rare, respite from care-taking, this weekend will give spouses in similar parenting situations the strategies and tools to deal with the stressors that can challenge the health of their marriage.
“We came to the 2017 Beyond Our Dreams retreat. We have several special needs children, including two babies who died in 2016. Keeping our marriage alive and full is a battle we rarely have the strength to work toward while we care for our children. This retreat was FUN! We learned about our personalities and how they affect our reactions to our children and our life situations. We learned to work together when we disagree and how our past effects our present reactions to situations. We played as a group and enjoyed meals together. The resources we came home with are things we can and will be using for a long time to come. They are a way for us to keep what we learned at the retreat growing and continuing. I recommend this retreat to all parents of special needs children – no matter what your child’s needs are. One day I hope we can come again and continue to grow in this journey to keep our marriage strong and happy as we raise our children.” – Tom & Beth
