Adventurous international teacher, Amy Bovaird, is diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa, a hereditary eye disease that will blind her. In spite of that, she manages to continue teaching overseas. Then her father’s final illness brings her back home for good. There, friends and acquaintances begin to notice that she doesn’t always recognize them and sometimes stumbles…as if drunk! Insensitive students ridicule her in the classroom. Unwilling to accept that she is truly losing her eyesight, Amy resists when the Bureau of Blindness schedules a mobility specialist to begin training her to use a white cane. How can she, an independent world traveler, use something that screams ‘I am a blind person’? Will her faith prove strong enough to allow her to move forward and accept herself as she is?

Author of Seeing Through Blindness & Leaves of Prophesy
Stepping out in faith is what matters most,
as you walk by IT, instead of by sight,
guided by staff of Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
while tapping the tip of your cane, from right to left and left to right,
between the shoulders of the narrow way:
a thoroughfare Jesus said few would find.
Yet, you happen to stumble upon it one day,
as the Lord opens the eyes of your mind.
While chaperoning you in faraway lands,
He escorts each step on every path you go.
Whether on mountaintops, high seas, or desert sands,
RP sometimes still might bring you low:
and when it does, remember, whatever you do,
Mobility Matters and so do you.
