Hello Fellow Bees-
Just finished watching this amazing and inspiring video…. about a mom of a baby with no eyes….it is amazing, and I am still in tears, while at work no less….such a true definition of what a mother’s love is capable of….
Just thought I would share it with the hive too….

It was simply lovely…and such a profound message of love, the love of a mother for her child.

What an inspiring story! I definitely cried my way through that video. Her little son is just so beautiful, and I’m so glad he found his way to such a loving and incredibly family!

I saw this posted the other day, but the video wouldn’t work for me. I’m so glad I got to finally watch it. What a sweet baby boy and a strong, proud mama. I wish them the best of luck. <3

awww. very inspiring. I am glad Christian was born into a loving and strong family. We can all definitely learn a thing or two from them.

I saw this over the weekend. Such an amazing young woman. Truly inspiring. I read through some of the comments after the video……it’s crazy how mean some people can be!
I pray she clings to her faith and what a lucky child to be born to such an incredible mommy!

I don’t understand…..sure it is terrible when your child is born with a disability….but what else was she supposed to do besides love him unconditionally? That’s what mothers are supposed to do, anything less would make her a ‘bad’ mother, wouldn’t it?
Growing up blind isn’t a horrible travesty—he’s going to have a relatively normal life–he isn’t brain damaged–will not spend his life in a hospital bed–and his condition is not at all life threatening.
Maybe I don’t get it because I’m not a mother…..

@sylvia.riggle: I think it’s because she caught it early enough that she could have aborted but didn’t.

I cried through the whole thing! The way that you could see the emotions on her face in each part of the story was truly touching.
@sylvia.riggle: I don’t agree that unconditional love would be automatic for every mother in this situation, but I do think that this mother of course isn’t the only one in these or similar circumstances. You just don’t often see a story told in this way, and with such emotion and pride. It was also a story of everyone else’s reaction.

@GoldfishPie: Not at all, the doctor told her he had a cleft lip/palette–they didn’t know until he was born that he also didn’t have eyes. Doctors didn’t even broach abortion, but she claims friends/family did
I don’t know of many moms who would abort solely because of a cleft lip–my father was born with a severerly cleft lip and cleft palette and he’s not deformed….after whatever surgeries they had in the 1950’s (I’m sure they have improved) it’s hardly noticeable. It would baffle my mind if someone would choose to abort their child for cosmetic reasons that can easily be fixed
I don’t like this whole ‘moms who don’t abort because the baby would have a disability are REAL moms’ attitude–I’m sure any person who has been in that situation and made the opposite decision would feel very hurt by that (not that I have)
