Love Isn't Blind!
31 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Based on a true story about a blind couple who seek to become parents and end up as foster parents is quite inspiring for those infertile, disadvantaged couples out there. As usual, Winningham and her co-star Keith Carradine turn in winning performances as the married couple. The eye of the sparrow was one of those television movies that left an impact on me that two people despite their handicap can love, feel, and want to be parents like everybody else. As foster parents, they become better parents to those abandoned or forgotten by their birth parents. Still parenthood is something that the couple adjust to their situation by being terrific foster parents.
