How does your child respond to blindness?

I have a son called Ben, he is 11 years old. Just 6 months ago we went on holiday to Africa. We had all the vaccinations and every thing like that. Ben got malaria. I don't know how he could have got it. The fever spread rapidly to his eyes. He lost his sight. He never complained. I am very proud of him. He is doing brilliantly. He is leaning Braille. He already can move around the house comfortably. Outside, shopping or in uneven places he feels more comfortable to hold my arm. He is going to a school for blind boys.

I Would Love to Hear Your Stories.

Which species of malaria did he contract? Where in Africa were you traveling? Why was your child not on anti-malaria medication?
