"Before the National Federation of the Blind entered our lives, it seemed like an impossible dream that our son Jordan could live a normal, productive life. When Jordan was eight years old the NFB gave him a white cane. He walked erect and let go of my hand for the first time ever. I sat down on a curb and wept with joy - we had finally found the right people to help our son. It is like we have led two lives, before the NFB and after. The NFB changed everything for us." 
- Carrie Gilmer, mother of Jordan
