After I saw the quality and time taken in my free sample editing, I did not hesitate to have FirstEditing edit my whole book. The quality of editing and comments from my editor, Christine, were just what my book needed. I couldn't be more satisfied!

A short introduction

When a terrible accident left Roy blind at the age of 22, he didn't know what his future would hold. Then he met Diane, who had been blind since birth. Their experiences with blindness were different, but together they knew they could overcome any obstacles that came their way.

Despite prejudice, mistreatment, and assumptions about their abilities, they married, lived independently, and started a family.

Their story of love, perseverance, and family is told by their sighted daughter who captures what real life was like in this family.

"Sometimes we see the challenges of others more than we see their gifts. As I Saw It is full of heartwarming stories, while not sugar-coating the difficult realities associated with being a child of blind parents in the 70s."

-Sharon Pope, Life Coach & Best-Selling Author

She currently works as an engineer and lives in Southern California with her rescue cats.
