As a back story to what I am about to write:
My daughter has an eye condition called coloboma. It's rare and happens around the 5 week mark of gestation. During that time, the eye lids are supposed to close to form the baby's eyes. However, on the rare occasion those eye lids doesn't fully close and leaves slits. When that happens parts of the eye or eyes are not formed. In my daughters case, both of her eyes are effected and she is missing part of her iris' leaving her pupil to make up for the empty space. She has what is sometimes called "key-hole shaped" pupils. What's this mean? It varies with every case. With my little girl, she has peripheral vision loss as well as a 40% chance of spontaneous retinal detachment. If she would get hit in the face (eye area especially) that chance increases dramatically because the muscles that hold the iris in place are weaker than the average persons. So, due to this risk, she isn't in sports such as basketball, soccer, softball, volleyball, etc. I am also aware that accidents happen so even a simple poke in the eye may cause damage. I also know that I can't exactly keep our daughter in a bubble and we have to put our trust in the Lord for protection. With that being said here is my 5 minutes of unedited free style writing of whats on my heart. Go...
