INSPIRING STORIES


I have asked my friends to write a story of their experiences about their child's eye condition. The most traumatic time is when you find out your child is blind whether it be bilaterally or unilaterally.

If your child is Physically challenged.....

Learning that your child is different summons up a host of emotions, including fear, anger, and self-blame. "Nobody prepares you for this possibility," says Los Angeles therapist Nancy Miller,Ph.D., author of Nobody's Perfect: Living and Growing with Children who Have Special Needs (Paul H. Brookes). She offers these suggestions for smoothing the way not just for your child but for your entire family.

Taken from Parents magazine, August 1998 issue. From the story "What's wrong with her hand?"
