India Vision Impairment Advocacy: Baby “Joseph” Needs a Family

To the surprise of many who do not know blind individuals, children with blindness attend the same public school classes as sighted children. Children with blindness may experience challenges with physical coordination and interaction with their environment, however, resources like special learning programs and technology can help children learn to maximize their other senses.

Today we are sharing baby “Joseph’s” story. He is almost 2-years-old, has round cheeks and a lot of dark curly hair. He was born blind.

He is described by his nannies as being active and playful. He babbles and can now stand up unassisted.

There are many blind children from India who waiting for forever families. Please pray with us for “Joseph” and share his story.

This is a shared referral. For more information on “Joseph” or other waiting children in India, please contact India@awaa.org or call 800-429-3369.
