Holy Crap! Kinnick knows her Colors!!


Kinnick is legally Blind due to ROP (Retinopathy of Prematurity). She has no Iris, no lens and her retinas are mostly detached with fluid under the retinas. We were told by more then one doctor that Kinnick would not/could not see in Color. Well guess what???? They were wrong.

Listen to my little blind girl tell us the Color of all of her light box bowls.....





She got every Color right! I'm so proud of her. I'm about to split at the seams!

That is so amazing that she can recognize her colours. I can see how happy you would be.
I can't believe how grown up she is now.
