Eric dreamed that his face would not repel other kids. He dreamed that he would be accepted by other kids and invited to play with them. As a young child, Eric had an eye accident that was not treated appropriately. He lost sight in that eye and was left with a frightening protrusion. Through the advocacy of a volunteer teacher, Eric was able to have an operation that cleaned and removed the infected eye and replaced it with a prosthetic.
Now, other children accept Eric and are eager to play with him. There is a smile on Eric’s face, and joy and laughter in his life. His mom is overjoyed at the drastic improvement in her son’s outlook.
