The second in a two-part series, Moe talks with Molly, Cat, and Carrie Biell about their experiences as young children when their mom went blind. There are lessons about resilience, the powerful bond that siblings share, and we also manage to use a fart metaphor to discuss the importance of not minimizing one's own suffering.
Moe talks with Janie McDermott, who shares her grief of going blind in her early thirties, as a Deaf woman with three young daughters and divorce looming on the horizon.
