As His Wife Goes Blind, Loving Husband Secretly Does This Sweet Gesture Every Day

Unconditional love knows no boundaries.

In this short film called “Blind Devotion,” produced by the Jubilee Project, we see a married couple redefine their relationship as the wife, Cecilia, goes blind. Their normal interactions and daily routine slowly fall apart as she increasingly loses her sight, and although her husband, Louie, remains encouraging and loving, Cecilia has difficulty adjusting to her disability.

“I can’t help but think that I’m becoming his patient not his partner,” she says as she increasingly loses her sight.

Cecilia insists on following her schedule as usual -- preparing breakfast, doing the laundry, walking and taking public transportation to work each day. Because he respects her, Louie lets Cecilia go out on her own each day. But because he loves her, he follows her on her commute each day, without her knowing.

“Cecilia will never know how much I do for her, and I don’t ever need her to know,” he says. “That’s how I still love her, even though she doesn’t want me to.”
