  •  As a person who is also legally blind without my (4+ / 0-)

    ... bifocal glasses (less than 20/400 without them,but at least is 20/20 with them, altho I have one dominant eye and one that doesn't track as well.  I frequently edit photos and sometimes html by holding my face up to the computer screen )  I also felt some dismay at reading the phrase "instead of a child that is maybe blind " or something.

    Oh, well, it's not like I haven't heard it all already on that topic. What's one more.

      as I said in a post to Wetmachine, my father who i talked about in the article was also legally blind.  I will never come close to having his go-for-it attitude.  

      I value embracing all the complexities of who we are and who our kids are.  This, for me, is a very different question than the decisions we face during or before pregnancy in terms of trying to stack the odds in favor of our children.
