A blind mother-to-be was given the opportunity to visualize her unborn baby by turning the ultrasound into a 3D-printed cast. The best part about this video is that the mother had no idea it’s coming, making things even more emotional.

Despite losing her eyesight about two years ago, Lucy Edwards has mastered her daily beauty routine – no mirror required.
Lucy, 19, lost sight in her right eye when she was 11, BuzzFeed reports. She lost it in her left eye when she was 17. With her sister’s support, she was able to come up with a regimen so she could do her makeup without seeing her reflection.
hiii!!!!!!! that’s me!!! i’m amelie, 20s, nb girl and i really, really, really, need a place to stay in Massachusetts. my current housing situation is volatile and unsafe. one of our roommates is very angry, passive-aggressive, defensive, all around unpleasant.
that roommate uses the r-slur all the time and it really hurts cuz i’ve struggled with a brain deformity all my life. it’s draining and demoralizing… some i’ve talked to would go as far as saying she is manipulative, but the details don’t matter to me.
i need a place that’s generally quiet and safe and can accommodate a cat.
this is mochi. she is quiet and shy and loves treats, like me! she is scared of strangers and i clean her waste every day so it’ll be like not having a cat at all for you.
anyway, i’d like a semi-permanent place. i get money every month from SSI. I don’t work because I’m disabled. i illustrate/draw/craft in my free time. i can’t pay a lot right now so a low-rent, no rent situation situation would be ideal, just until i get things sorted out with social security. i’ve also applied for SNAP benefits so yeah more $$$$ and then i’d be able to pay more rent. i’m clean and really quiet. i prefer texting over speaking, even if we’re face-to-face but i can speak. i get jumbled up sometimes but it’s usually not a big deal.
if not semi-permanent… maybe i could crash on your couch until june or later? if i stay later, i’d still pay rent for the room i’m in currently and i wouldn’t bring a lot of stuff… it’d just to be away from my bad roommate who is done with classes for the summer.
or if anybody wants to look for a place together, that’d be nice too. i don’t have a lot in my savings atm (relative to the amount needed for moving, security deposit, firt+last rent that is. i’ve got about $300 in savings) so i’d need help w that. donations would be nice… i’ll draw a picture for you if you say so in your note… or you could commission me as well. my paypal address is email@example.com
examples of art can be found on my art blog almondette please look and consider commissioning me… i have a degree in illustration from LUCAD, and i work really hard.
sorry this is so rushed-i really, really want to get out… thank you for reading ♥
