Monica Calhoun: "The way I grew up is just a little bit different than everybody else, because my brother (not pictured) was born blind. So my perception on the world and things is just a little bit different. My compassion and my sensitivity are heightened because of my brother's blindness...and spending a lot of time with him. And you know, teaching him things that I've learned...and then vice versa somewhat. Me spending time with him at his programs...like 'The Braille Institute'...just different little things. So I got a chance to experience life on a different level. Patience in watching these people that volunteer to work with children that have some sort of impairment.." [Monica says she learned how to have that same type of patience].
Screen Shot 2016-08-22 at 2.33.11 PM We're not sure if Monica's son and brother's blindness is just a coincidence, or if it stems  from some type of a hereditable condition. But what's truly amazing is that all the while Monica was learning to see the world through a different lens as a kid, she was being fully prepared for her gift- her son- and didn't even know it.
