Parenting a Visually Impaired Child
Hadley School for the Blind. So, I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks! That is, if she is willing to learn. I am definitely willing, as I am not only Baby Girl's mother, but also her teacher. Plus, I feel empowered when I take on the things that challenge me most and the things that I fear. I also discovered this company, which has inexpensive Braille books for children. With today's technology and internet, you can find almost anything you set out to find. So, if you're out there, having doubts about the future, or fears about teaching your child(ren) with special needs, first you should cast all your cares and worries on the One who loves you and your children the most and commit all your works to Him. Then ask God to lead you to the best sources that will help you educate yourself so you can teach your child(ren.) He holds all of eternity and sees all that is to come. Ask, and He will answer. Just be prepared for the unexpected! Really, if someone had told me three years ago that I'd be learning Braille today, I would have thought they were crazy. Yet, here I am, taking on this challenge. With God's grace, I will be successful and will be able to teach it to Baby Girl. After all, He placed her in our family, just like He placed your child(ren) in your family. So, get moving in the direction He has for you!
