Happy Mother’s Day! ... I'm going to share how i think my blindness is having a positive impact on my kids
It’s true that mums who can’t see, or see very little, have to do things differently to our sighted mum friends.

A bit about me
I’m Ming. I’m a 30 something wife to my wonderful husband and mother to my 2 beautiful daughters, aged 1 and 3. Things that make me happy include laughing with the people I love, ballet, travelling, discovering new things and food. Particularly food. I’m also partially sighted and registered Severely Sight Impaired (blind).
