Kahla & Lillian: A single mom finds help at Family Retreat

Kahla was only 20 when six months into her pregnancy she was in a tragic accident. Miraculously, her baby survived, but little Lillian was born with cerebral palsy. Raising a special needs child as a single mother can be very challenging, but Kahla and Lillian have found help and hope at Family Retreat. The fellowship, fun, and resources at camp have encouraged this small family to press on in Christ. It’s why if you have a child with a disability, or know someone who does, we’d like to invite you to watch this short video of Kahla and Lillian at Family Retreat. And if you’d like to learn more about our Family Retreats, click here and then, pass on the info!

Amazing lil girl and an Amazing Mother. I have known Kahla for a long time and anyone that knows her; should know this; if there were ever a single Mom that could fight back advetsity, make the best out of their lives together, without self pity, or letting it stop them from enjoying life... Then you know that K.Q. would be that Single Mother to accomplish that feat... Touche ladies yall are an inspiration...
