When a baby is born, the first person they see and cuddle up to is their mother. For baby Louise, however, things were a little different.
Louise suffers from Albinism, a condition that results in the loss of pigment in the skin and in some cases also impairs vision. Because of this, the adorable tot hasn’t been able to see her mommy (or anyone) — until now.
To help her see clearly, Louise received a special pair of glasses. As her mum gently fits them over her eyes, the camera rolls, capturing the touching mother-daughter moment.
Louise briefly struggles as she adjusts to the frames on her face before her expression completely changes. At first she’s clearly shocked to see a blond lady staring back at her, until she realizes that, “Hey, it’s mommy!”. After that, it’s all smiles and giggles.
We can’t stop smiling either.
