Lots of great guidance here! My husband and I attended the February 2016 orientation weekend. There was a recommended hotel that was very nice that offered a discounted rate. It was nice that we where all staying in the same place; quick and easy plus it gave us more time to bond with our group. It was a wonderful weekend full of amazing memories and the start of life long friendships. Your group along with other abrazo alumni will quickly become your go to for questions and support. Abrazo has a great program and offers lots of support and guidance. Fear not my friend you are in good hands. We arrived Thursday evening that way we could see some sights and get our fingerprints on Friday before our first get together. Congratulations on moving forward on this amazing journey!
