After church today we loaded up into the van. I glanced back into the rows and rows of seats behind us and noticed that Lexi wasn't buckled. "Lexi," I asked, "can you buckle yourself?" She responded: "No. But I blind." Wow. That hit me like a ton of bricks. Where did she get the idea that her blindness prevented her from buckling her seatbelt? What other preconceived notions does she have or will she pick up as she gets older. Lexi, you can do ANYTHING! A silly little seatbelt is a piece of cake. We will continue to look for more and more opportunities to help Lexi see what she can do in spite of her lack of vision.

  1. Morning Bro - yeah - something I didn't think about - how many things will you need to encourage her to try because of that 'preconception' that I can't? Somehow I know y'all are up to the task - but

    love y'all - aus and co.
