Australian parrots flew around our heads in a frenzy, casting bright bursts of vibrancy around the Willawong Station on our recent Saving Kids' Sight trip to Woodland Park Zoo. I stood in awe, watching eager birds fly onto kids' arms, pecking away at the food pellet sticks they held. One grasped its long, smooth claws on a girl's head, while its friend sat atop another's shoulder, hoping to catch a nibble of tastiness.
Kids of all ages displayed joy and excitement on their faces as these friendly creatures frolicked around them. Parents talked in the background, snapping photos and sharing laughter. Everyone seemed to have a great time at the zoo.
The goal of my blog is to increase awareness of childhood glaucoma and other eye diseases, and to unite kids like me living with visual impairment.
