Holly Bonner writes about being a mother to two beautiful little girls. What makes her blog different than most mommy blogs is that Holly is blind. She blogs about life and adaptations she’s made to make things easier. She’s honest… and funny!
I particularly love her post on How Being A Blind Mother Is Like Being On the WALKING DEAD. It’s a relief to find someone who knows how to add a little humor to everyday annoyances!
And she also shares some great recipes, too!
Here’s what she says about herself:
“I’m Holly Bonner, a 35 year old, wife, mother and social worker! After completing chemotherapy for breast cancer in 2012, I became legally blind from a neurological condition. Thrust into a much darker world, I went from the role of social work practitioner to the part of disabled client in need of services. With months of training in technology, mobility and ADL (adult daily living) skills; I finally began to feel like I could confidently rejoin the land of the living with my trusty white cane by my side. Then, what doctors had said was impossible happened, I got pregnant! Doctors….LOL! What do they know, right?”
