Watch The Happy Moment This Blind Mom Sees Her Baby For The Very First Time. At 0.49 I Cried.
Ten years ago, a legally blind young mother would have to resign herself to connect with her newborn without seeing him, instead relying on the sound of his cry, the feel of his heartbeat, and the softness of his skin. Thanks to modern technology, that's all about to change.
This young mother, who has been legally blind since a young age, was given the gift of sight after her baby was born-if only temporarily. She is wearing a pair of $15,000 developed by eSight, which combine a camera and advanced computing to shoot a real-time video that enables people with vision loss to see. The glasses can be adjusted according to the wearers individual needs.
Fundraising campaigns are currently underway to bring eSight to other women like this one, and frankly, it fills my heart with joy. It's easy to take for granted what we never have to live without, and what this mother says at :40 is truly heartwarming.
