“Often people think because you’re blind you can’t make yourself look good. I love fashion and accessories, I have odd eyes but never wear my prosthetic lens. I love to be different one brown eye one blue grey, I wear my make up and go about my day!” ~Angie Roberts

A year after her heart attack at age 36, Angie was registered as blind. At that time she thought it was the end…and yet here she is, a believer in one should never give up hope no matter how dark you feel.

“A guide. I never seek a lifeboat but instead, I seek a Lighthouse. I seek trusted people who can guide and remind me that the light I no longer see is still there. I find people who has light coming from their hearts that I can see from far, far away. They know they never have to step into the dark with me, but simply shine and I’ll walk towards them. There’s no way to take away my struggle without also taking away my strength. You never know when you are a lighthouse in someone else’s storm.” ~Christina Holtz

Christina is a wife, mom, and Assistant Director of the Center for Independent Living.

I’m not the West Side Story, “I feel pretty” kind of girl. Since losing my eyesight, beauty has been more about how I feel and less about what I look like. I prefer to be “pretty smart,” “pretty kind”, a “pretty good mother.” ~Holly Bonner, Blind Motherhood

Holly is a wife, mom to two adorable daughters, and the Owner, Writer, and Disability Advocate at Blind MotherhoodAnd for the record, contrary to her quote, Holly is a beautiful woman and one I’m proud to call a friend.

“I walk into a stop sign, which forces me to take action around my failing vision. This literal sign required me to stop and reevaluate my current circumstances and make some changes in my life. “If I’d been waiting for a sign that I needed a cane, well, I’d just walked into one.”

~Becky Peterson Andrews, (quote is an excerpt from chapter 7 of her book).
