Eric with his daughter Sora, who has vision impairment.
Seventeen-month old Sora loves music; give her a drum or a toy piano, and she will be in her element, or play a beat, and she’ll dance. Her talents don’t stop at music, either. Sora, whose name means ‘sky’ in Japanese, is learning both English and Japanese, languages that are used in her family – and is excelling at both. 
 
“We’ll say something in Japanese, and she’ll respond in English. We’re so amazed by Sora!” said proud dad, Eric.

Amelia with her dad Nigel.

Nigel took up the challenge for charity, running for RIDBC in the Canberra Times Australian Running Festival. He wanted to support the organisation that is helping his daughter, Amelia, who has vision loss.

When Nigel and Jennifer moved to Australia from the UK with their 3 month old daughter, Amelia, it became clear she wasn’t developing at the same rate as other children.

“We live in Canberra and when Amelia was diagnosed with vision loss we were referred to RIDBC in Sydney as there were no similar services in the ACT,” said Nigel.
