Parents help five-year-old complete things-to-see bucket list before she goes blind

Nothing is sweeter than seeing the world through your child’s eyes. But what if a doctor told you that your child only has a few short years left before the sense of sight will be stolen away?

This is the reality for Christine and Steve Myers and now they are racing against time (and around the globe) to complete a visual bucket list of sights for their five-year-old daughter before she goes blind.

“The wind was blowing just right,” he says. “We had hundreds of bubbles flying in the air. They just loved it. I hope things like that will mean the most to her.”

While the time will come when Christine and Steve will tell their daughter about her blindness, it is certainly not on the list of things to do anytime soon.

For now, Lizzy, who wants to be a princess or mermaid when she grows up, is quite content experiencing all the beauty the world has to offer and enjoying every special outing with those who love her the most.
