They wanted to know how we will go for hikes with N along. Or if N will join in when they have pick up Ultimate Frisbee games with friends. They wanted to know if N will be able to read (see this post), or cook, or take pictures, or play dress up and pretend.
Being totally honest. I didn't have all the answers. And some of the questions kinda freaked me out.
I had forgotten we love to hike (in my defense, it is winter and freezing in New England). I knew N could learn braille, we can narrate movies for her, that she would learn to cook (there is no choice in a family of eaters) and playing and dressing up would happen naturally.
But hiking, and sports, travel, visual arts - what about those?
A bit of web research later and I'm feeling quite at ease. Ever heard of Beep Baseball? Well, I hadn't either. It actually looks like a game this sighted person could actually be good at (since I would have the advantage in sight, not in ability - ahem).
Cooking? Christine Ha was crowned Master Chef.
Visual arts? The Univeristy of California Riverside did an exhibit on Blind Photographers.
Yeah, we got that covered.
