Almost four years later, we had our little redhead, Darby! About 9 months later, I noticed HER eyes turning in. NOT AGAIN! I CAN'T HANDLE THIS, LORD! NOT AGAIN! (But I could, I can, and I do) Darby's vision is significantly worse than Naomi's. In fact, Darby's prescription is almost twice as strong as Naomi's. But, again, we found the cutest glasses possible for the cutest little redhead pixie we know, and she works them! We have not had to patch, and so far, the glasses seem to be doing the trick.
Fortunately for my girlie girls, we go back to the opthamologist in the next week for a routine checkup. Hear me---ROUTINE. This sort of eyecare is ROUTINE in our country, while BOTH of my girls would be going blind in almost any other country on earth.
Enter TOMS SHOES...again! I love TOMS shoes! Aside from being SO comfy...they give ONE PAIR OF SHOES AWAY with EVERY SINGLE PAIR PURCHASED! I cannot speak highly enough of them. I respect their business model immensely. And still...I am speechless at their newest product. Sunglasses. I'm choking up here because BOTH my girls would be going blind if it weren't for proper vision care. A COMPLETELY PREVENTABLE ISSUE IN AMERICA! Not so in the third world! Due to lack of proper vision care, MOST PEOPLE WITH THE SAME VISION PROBLEMS MY GIRLS HAVE WILL GO BLIND. Not MY girls, though. We HAVE while others do NOT.
SO simple. SO important! Jesus found value in healing the blind! WHY WOULDN'T WE?!! FINALLY! A voice has come for the voiceless! Thank you, TOMS! THANK YOU!!!
Please take 1 minute 30 seconds to watch the video of how TOMS is taking action on this issue HERE.
I can't wait to get my first pair of TOMS sunglasses! That means, for one mommy across the world, her little girl will not go blind, either!
I promise I am not a spokesperson for TOMS SHOES. Just a big, BIG fan! :) And, I wanted to let you in on what ONE COMPANY is doing for the world!
