Sup Travellers?! Do you have the Monday Blues? If you do then this story should definitely lift your spirit. It's about a blind mother who got the amazing gift of motherhood but that's not the only gift she got on the day she gave birth to baby Aksel.

There was very little hope for legally blind woman and new mother Kathy Bietz after she was diagnosed with Stargardt disease, a genetic eye disorder that causes gradual loss of vision, when she was only 11 years old. Although she has some peripheral vision, for most of Bietz’s life, she’s been literally in the dark.

The 29-year-old Ontario woman wouldn't have had the opportunity to see her newborn baby but thanks to technology things are looking up for her. Bietz was introduced to a life-altering device that changed everything. Wearing eSight glasses, which records video of the image in front of a person and magnifies it onto a high-definition screen, Beitz was able to see her newborn son — and her husband, too.

Through a new campaign centered on Beitz’s story, the eSight company is aiming to “Make Blindness History.” With nearly 285 million visually impaired people around the world, this little glimmer of hope is a great place to start.

One of the greatest gifts you can give to a blind person is the gift of sight and eSight is definitely a good start. I hope they begin mass production soon. How awesome would that be? Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
