Re:Fostering or adopting being blind

My wife and I are both partially blind and we adopted our son in 2009. Our social worker had worked with other blind clients and was excellent. We don't have experience with the foster care system except that we did attend an informational meeting and were told that our disability would not get in the way of our becoming licensed foster parents.

Please email me at if you have more questions.
