“Your son is blind. He will never play baseball. He will never drive. Your hopes and dreams for your son are gone. Learn how to raise a blind child. Good luck.”
That’s what the doctors told me when they delivered the diagnosis that my son has a rare eye disease called Leber’s Congenital Amaurosis (LCA). One delivery of that news is about all a person can take – I got the news twice. Both of my sons have LCA.
My boys have shattered the bleak box they were put in – and they continue to raise the bar on people’s expectations of what blind kids can do… at 16 and 13 they are just getting started!
WATCH & LISTEN: the song is performed by my oldest blind son 🙂 You can follow more videos and posts regarding their journey at our little Facebook community, Thriving Blind.
