Your son is a handsome little fella. I thought I'd tell you a little about my Dad and my Uncle Eugene. Both were legally blind and my Dad went to the School for the blind in Macon Ga. when he was a kid to learn brail and how to function in the everyday world with his handycap. Well Dad being Dad didn't like the Few jobs people offered him so he just adapted and just did what he wanted to do. He farmed and built houses and worked on the big off shore oil rigs and near the end of his life restored several old tractors. Folks with disabilities are only limited by their imaginations. My Uncle Gene was nearly as blind as my Dad and retired as the senior mechanic with the Ford Tractor co. He could tell you simply by feel the size of a wrench or bolt or nut. It was amazing to watch him tear down a tractor or car mostly by feel.

I hope you will incourage your son to live whatever dreams he has...God bless you and him.
