Finley has some sensory issues that we are working through.
We were told it is pretty normal for vision kids to need an outlet. She touches our faces, she puts things really close to us. She gets really close to our faces, and then she likes really, really strong hugs.
She will squeeze toys, us, the dogs....She is trying to be sweet and gentle, and for us, it is no big deal. The dogs do not love it, of course. We are constantly reminding her to be gentle.
It is a full time job caring for Finley. You look at her and see a normal kid. But the reality is completely different. Between her vision needs, her sensory needs, and the need to always keep a close eye on her, we are exhausted.
