Location: "Westview on the James" Camp

Sacrifices inherent in serving our nation such as deployments, and recovery from physical and invisible wounds take a toll on warriors, spouses, and children. This weekend event will help parents and children build communication, conflict resolution, and coping skills to foster resilience among military and veteran families.
Nestled in Goochland Virginia, Westview on the James offers a rustic setting to learn and play! Parents and school-age children will participate in both separate skills-building workshops and family activities that promote bonding and togetherness.
Open to all military and veteran families coping with the impact of deployment, military service, post-traumatic stress, operational stress and traumatic brain injury. ** Note this event is most appropriate for school age children who can function within a group environment both with and without their parents present.
Rustic cabin lodging is available but limited so REGISTER soon!
Meals and recreational activities are also included for registered families.
The event is FREE, but registration is required. Please contact Sophia Reed at 804.819.4221 or email your contact information to: reeds[at]rbha.org.
I recently came across an article that really made me stop and think "Could this really happen?" then it became "Oh Wait... They are talking about a Family like mine."
The Article I am talking about is a post from MrDad.com answering a a Veterns question "My husband and I both have disabilities. He is blind and I suffer from a traumatic brain injury I received serving in Iraq. I'm pregnant and we're due in about a month. We were both so excited, but a friend told us that there's a chance we could lose custody of the baby because we both have disabilities. Now, instead of looking forward to becoming parents, we're both in a panic. Is that true? If so, what can we do?"
