Acknowledgements & Praise

My Husband and I just watched My Dancing Eyes together – thank you so much Matthew. Our Son has Nystagmus, there is so much for us to learn and we want him to be as independent and strong as he can be and encourage him, to be brave and do whatever he will dream of and all the experiences are helping us so much. Thank you for this incredible Documentary, the work, the outcome of this. Keep doing it, it’s great and we’re deeply touched and grateful.”
