Blind Childrens Center, Los Angeles, CA.
English and Spanish versions of this booklet describe typical feelings experienced by parents of blind and partially sighted children. Experiences are cited including first feelings of shock and confusion, days of dramatic ups and downs, need to find a reason for the blindness, self doubts and anxiety, and reactions from strangers. In closing, the parents of a blind girl conclude by stating that time does heal and life does return to normal as they illustrate by describing their 10-year-old's accomplishments. (CL)
