I enjoy attending WAGR weekend every time that my family is able to go. Everyone connects so easily there, even if you don’t know somebody you are almost automatically friends with them because you can relate to them so well. I think WAGR Weekend is great because you can find at least one person that you can just talk to about anything, without knowing them for 24 hours. When I see the other WAGR kids I feel very lucky, because my sister, Kelsie is extremely happy and way easier to put up with than some of them. I feel guilty though, because I see WAGR kids that are way worse off than Kelsie, and their families are great with them, but I fight with Kelsie. My favorite part was all of the fun things that Ashley and I did together, I can’t pick just one part.
