'Blindside Fresno': Being a Blind Mom

The latest edition of 'Blindside Fresno' is now available on YouTube.

In this program, program 4, and in program 5 broadcast next  month. Two moms; Debbie Flowers, a High School Teacher and Sarah Harris,  talk about their individual experiences losing their vision. One having a degenerative eye disorder since being a child, the other losing her sight in a motor vehicle accident.

Facing blindness is hard, but being a parent is even harder especially when faced with the prospect of caring for a child which you cannot see. How do you know what food you are giving them? How do you cope when they are sick? How do you  push a stroller while wielding a long white cane?

Debbie talk about these things as well as talking with humor about the funny side of blind motherhood, such as why did the grocery store visit suddenly become more expensive? What can a child possibly do to disappear when it is wearing bells?

Some of the answers are here in this program, for the  rest you will have to wait until part two is broadcast next month.
