Legally Blind Mom in CT seeking friendships

My name is Michele and I am a 40 year old mom in CT. My 2 boys are 10 months and 2 1/2 years old. I have juvenile glaucoma that has deteriorated over the years and am now legally blind and stopped driving in January 2009. All of my "mom" friends are sighted, but I would love to meet some moms or dads in my situation to chat with, learn from, and share. I am happily married and I work part time. My biggest frustration is not being able to access public transportation with kids. I pay a driver once a week, but that gets expensive fast!

Re:Legally Blind Mom in CT seeking friendships

Hi Michele. I hope that you are still on here. I am 34 and legally blind from RP. I stopped driving when I was 21. I have a 4 year old son, and my husband and I are considering trying to get pregnant again. I have so many worries and concerns about having 2 children. I hope to hear from you.

Re:Legally Blind Mom in CT seeking friendships

Hello Michelle,

I am legally blind as well, with sight in one eye somewhere around 20/250. My other eye was removed this spring. I am a 33 year old single custodial father of a lovely 7 year old girl and a wonderfull 5 year old boy. I live in a very rural area, and public transportation is not an option, I also have never had the ability to see well enough to drive a car, so I understand your transportation issues. Please, feel free to contact me anytime.
