Everyday Blind Parents


Sep 29, 2018

It’s surprising that in this day and age, a parent can still be denied custody purely on the fact that they have a vision disability. Thankfully, laws are changing, but there is still work to be done to eliminate such practices. In this episode, blind father, Mike Bullis from Maryland shares his experience dealing with a very difficult custody battle where his blindness was called into question. Mike Bullis is the father of a sixteen year old daughter. He has been blind all his life, and been a successful entrepreneur most of his life running several businesses. He is the founding director of the Image Center where he serves people with disabilities in the state of Maryland, and has played an active role in changing custody legislation in Maryland and other states. . Whether you are going through a similar situation or not, Mike’s story, his positive outlook on life, and some of the lessons he’s learned along the way as a blind father are something to be heard.
