Blindness....

I have always had a desire to adopt a blind child. Admittedly, when we took that first step and committed to adopting a little girl who is blind we knew very little. I have found this site to be most helpful.

It is full of great articles not only on blind children, but ideas for other disabilities as well. I have been reading a lot about orientation and mobility, something that the little girl we are adopting has not had any focus or help on. Here is a good article to start with.

Orientation and Mobility

Did you know that it's never too early to begin teaching your blind baby orientation and mobility skills? Even if your blind infant is barely holding up her own head, let alone moving anywhere on her own, orientation and mobility is still a key factor to future independence and many of the basic teachings can begin as early as infancy.


Reeces Rainbow has many children with vision impairments waiting for their forever family to find them. Could you be the one God is calling?
