I'm a 22 year old female and my vision is failing me. I fear losing my vision before I get married to the love of my life, to see the happiness on his face when I get to wear that white dress my mother made me, before I get to see the ring he worked so hard to buy for me, before I get to see his face when we conceive our first child, and before I get to meet my children...

I know just how you feel.
I'm 14, blind, and scared that no one will love me because I'm different.

Common girls,you have your loved ones. People around you, do not love you because they can see you, you seeing them. They love you for the wonderful person you are... :)

We miss most that we do not have.My daughter is away from me, I can see her on the web cam but I can't touch her ... I long to touch her ... I go to her room, touch the things that she had touched...

You and me are in parallel boats. Boats that will never come to cross paths but that have the same fears. I am 21 and Hard-of-Hearing...someday I will be Deaf. I used to fear that I may never hear the children I so desperately can't wait to have, but then something changed. I stopped fearing not being able to hear them because I realized that I WILL hear them, it just won't be in the literal sense of the word. Just like you may never see them, but you WILL SEE them. I don't lay sympathy in the way of your course and I am not big on faith, but our scenario's are truly those of what some would call cruel jokes...to give us sight/sound and then take it all away. But it is something that we must come to grips with because sulking does us no good. I have true faith that your other senses will kick in and you will SEE your beautiful children and your husband's face on that glorious day better than anyone else around you. It's all about perspective.
