Hi there, this is Eleanor Lou. The bow you see on her little head is glued there (her nurses did this). Luckily it came off! Prior to her birth day we were under the assumption that she would be born with a genetic disorder in her brain. The doctor who made that assumption was wrong. However, we still have several questions; Ellie was born with limited vision. Since we discovered that she has limited vision we have been given more questions to our questions than answers. As parents of a visually impaired child we quickly learned that there are not many worthwhile resources from which we could seek out to understand what our life as parents of Ellie would be like. Our hope is that this blog and our experiences will help those like us. However, it is our most profound hope that all people will view this blog and find inspiration, beauty, and wonder-this world, our world, is experienced in many, many ways. Ellie’s is just one.
