After I graduated college I volunteered for a couple years at the Foundation for Blind Children. I helped out in a classroom of toddlers. Mostly I would just play with them and sing and rock them in a swing. One time I went on a field trip with them to a farm.

All the kids had visual impairments as well as other physical limitations, so most of them were in those full body wheelchair things. It was common for some of the kids to have short seizures during the day. You would think it would be depressing, but I really enjoyed volunteering there, and the kids were sweet.

This girl’s name was Yom and she was from a big family that had recently moved here from another country. She was a beautiful little girl.
