About This Blog

The Will to See chronicles the balancing act that is my life -- raising two boys with vision and GI issues while building advocacy and a voice for these conditions.


 George Washington came home today instead of Will.  All dressed and ready to go. Love my new @stitchfix cardigan.

About the Boys

Jack is a thriving 3rd grader who spent most of his first 2 1/2 years of life being tube fed as a result of GI complications. He loves riding his bike, being a cub scout, reading books and playing soccer and basketball.


Will is a busy five year old who keeps us on our toes despite his vision impairment, ocular albinism. His favorite activities are riding his bike, playing cars, playing with his brother and charming everyone he meets.
