Excellent resource for Blind parents & others
Not only is this a great resource and support for blind parents, it's a great way to learn about blindness in general. If you are a blind parent, this podcast offers support, humor & practical wisdom. It is also very helpful for people who aren't yet parents-blind or sighted. It's also a good listen for those who work alongside the blind, to understand their perspective as well as the hurdles that come--mostly from the misconceptions of others.
