Nationwide — More than being an iconic actress, Monica Calhoun is also a caring mother to her son who is blind. A video that she posted of her with her son in a swimming pool in 2018 has resurfaced.
In 2018, she sharеd a video of herself teaching her son how to float on his back in a swimming pool. People were touched by how her son trusted her unconditionally — that he knows his mother always has his back literally and figuratively.
“There is no greater bond than the bond between mother and child,” one wrote.
“You are so dope, God blessed you with an angel of his very own to love,” another commented.
What’s more, having a blind loved one is not new to Monica. Her brother, whom she grew up with, was also born blind.
“The way I grew up is just a little bit different than everybody else because my brother was born blind. So my perception of the world and things is just a little bit different. My compassion and my sensitivity are heightened because of my brother’s blindness…and spending a lot of time with him,” Monica said, according to I Love Old School Music.
