Advice for new mom

It looks like I will soon (like, the end of this week) be fostering a nine-month-old, whose doctors think may be losing his sight due to injuries (don't ask). I have experience with teens and adults who are visually impaired, and I plan to pick their brains, but I want to hear from some parents. What should I expect? Watch for? Prepare? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Fostering is really tuff. I really take my het of to everybody who thinks they can pull it off. I fostered for over 12 years various children from different backgrounds. Its hard work but very rewarding. I did it all whilst suffering heavily from I was constantly on medication and antibiotics but we as a family got throught it and i would recommend it to anyone
