Baby With Albinism Has Incredible Reaction to her Mother's Singing

Little 7-month-old Louise has albinism, according to the video below. Albinism is an inherited condition where people are born with little or no pigment in their eyes, skin or hair, according to the National Organization for Albinism and Hypopigmentation. It also results in vision problems.

Louise only recently got glasses and was able to see her mother for the first time, according to her YouTube channel. In the video below, she gets adorably emotional while her mother sings “Amazing Grace” to her.

Watch the incredibly sweet interaction in the video below:

Why I'm Thankful for the Special Needs Community

I’m thankful for the special needs community… For the teachers, therapists, staff, and paraprofessional extraordinaire, “Mrs.Z,” who have all cared for, assisted, taught, reassured, laughed with (not at) and hugged my big boy for the last four years.
