This Retreat Is Just for Moms of Kids With Special Needs

Your kids require special care—and so do you, Mom. Happy Mama Retreat, an annual getaway just for moms of kids with special needs, gives you an excuse to relax, practice self-care and be in community with other women who understand your journey. The weekend includes painting, wine socials, hikes and spa treatments. During the conference part of the retreat, speakers like therapists and coaches give insights on how to cope with your emotions. Registration for next year’s retreat, held April 12–14 in Montreat, North Carolina, is now open, and prices increase Nov. 1. Scholarships to attend are available.
