Most people living with vision loss eventually have children; the rates are only slightly lower than sighted individuals. However, many blind people contemplate if child rearing makes sense. Such a person’s concerns often stem from discouragement from other sighted people. While the opinions of the misinformed should never stand in someone’s way, several things are beneficial to consider before starting down the path to mother or fatherhood. Such as your mobility, home management, problem-solving, and advocacy skills.
