Sadie's a model!!

Today was the first (annual) Mother's Day Brunch and Fashion Show at Foundation for Blind Children.  Sadie got to wear a cute outfit from The Gap and modeled it for everyone to see as she was wheeled down the runway.  She loved all the attention, I sort of wish the girl went slower with her so Sadie could enjoy all the people looking at her and clapping for her!

All of the models ranged from about 1 and a half to 15.  They were all visually impaired in some way.  Some were full-on blind and used a cane, some could see a bit and had no trouble.  Some, like Sadie, couldn't walk, and were wheeled or carried.  They were all beautiful and it was really neat to see them act so confident and get so much attention.  I think girls need to feel pretty.  They need to know that people think they are beautiful even though they may not be able to see themselves, or walk, or talk.  People say beauty is on the inside, but I truly believe that to FEEL beautiful, you have to start with the outside.

I wish I had video of more girls than just Sadie, but at the time, it didn't seem necessary to video people I didn't know.  But check out Sadie down the runway.  She was so happy!!
