Although, the Pregnancy seemed smooth, she found out our months after her son was born that her son was blind.
“The doctor was like ‘his eyes are not following’ and I was like, ‘What do you mean he’s not following?.’

Multiple tests were also carried out on her son within and abroad before it was finally confirmed that David could not see with his physical eyes.
