With my face in my coffee mug, after another sleepless night of taking care of my babies I found this in my inbox. What a great way to start a day! Thanks Chrys. XOXO!
My name is Crys Bradley and I just discovered your blog via a post you had tagged Tracy Eikleberry in on Facebook (he and I went to high school together).
As a person with low vision myself, I read anything I find on Facebook related to blindness, especially when I find it unexpectedly on a friend’s timeline. 😉
It’s great to find another visually impaired person with a positive outlook on life. Sometimes I feel like people expect us to be sad all the time.
While I’m not a mother and still have a significant amount of vision, I hear myself in the words of your posts. I wish I had found your blog when I still lived in Vegas. I live in Colorado now and I love it. I moved out here because the quality of life I had dreamed of was so readily available. It’s absolutely gorgeous here!
At any rate, I just wanted to commend you on your “full speed ahead” approach on life and motherhood. And I’m so impressed that you braille your own books — what a task! You are an inspiration to someone who wondered how I might raise children with reduced vision. I am often told by friends and coworkers that I do things so fluidly they sometimes “forget” I have an impairment. I too, just do it. But motherhood frightens me. I’ve always said that there are blind mothers everywhere who do it everyday. I guess I need more vicarious experiences. I look forward to reading more of your posts!
All the best,
