A Mom’s Love for Her Blind Son, One Paper at a Time

Well, there’s been a lot of action on my blog this week!  I welcome all my new readers… even you guys who don’t agree with me on my recent post.  Today, I’m posting something uplifting…  something we can all agree on.  This Mother’s Day weekend, as you run around town looking for a gift for Mom, this video will inspire you. It’s a mother telling the story of her blind son’s birth and life, one piece of paper at a time.  I love the different emotions she shows on her face between the papers…  you can tell she’s been through a lot, but she’s not broken and is not in despair.

Anyway, if there are any struggling mothers out there this weekend, you might find inspiration in this mom’s determination and love.

And for the rest of you — here’s a hint: all Moms love chocolate!

    This individual story is sweet, I guess, but it’s also being used as anti-choice propaganda by so many sources. It’s disingenuous to claim it’s something “we can all agree on.” There’s nothing wrong with a mother learning her fetus has this disorder and then aborting it. There’s also nothing wrong with a mother learning her fetus has this disorder choosing to have it.

    All I can after watching this video is “WOW!” I’m in the group who wonders how anyone could consider abortion let alone criticize someone for NOT having one. There are some seriously disturbed people in this world but this gal has her head on right and is moving in the right direction. Christian is a lucky and much-loved little boy!

    Some people do have the guts and the heart to do what is right, like Christian’s mom, no matter what others may say. Such an inspiring story!

    Happy Mother’s Day to you Bristol, your mom and grandmas and to all moms in the world.
