Faith Unseen

Take my hand and let me tell you about my grandma…

At the tender age of eight, Marie loses her parents. Left as an orphan, she also begins to battle a world of darkness. Marie develops Retinitis Pigmentosa, a progressive form of blindness, and is sent to Faribault School for the Blind where she spends the majority of her childhood.

Constantly searching for a sense of belonging, Marie finds hope and love for the first time in her adult life. As Marie learns to navigate a sightless world, she marries, has children, and starts to live the life she has always yearned for. In a series of unforeseen events, her life begins to fall apart. Her husband deserts her, leaving her with no income, a threat of eviction from the converted gas station she calls home, a daughter battling a life threatening case of polio, and a fourth child on the way. Marie is left to cling to her faith. God delivers.

What happens next is nothing short of a miracle, the very best of humanity on display.
