There are many wonderful things about Monica Calhoun. She’s a great actress and an amazing mother. One thing many of her fans love about her, aside from her skills in front of the camera, is how she doesn’t shy away from showing off her bond with her special-needs son online.
The numerous uploads that show her and her 18-year-old son, who happens to be blind, go a long way in telling her fans the kind of person she is.
She is famous for flooding the internet with various posts of them both, but her most recent one tugged at many people’s hearts.
The video showed her and her son engaged in an activity known to foster bonding – swimming. The 47-year-old actress was teaching him how to float on his back in the pool.

It is evident that the young man has absolute faith in his mother and he is confident that she’ll always have his back.
One can tell all this by simply observing the level of comfort he exhibits while in her arms. It’s simply a joy to watch!
Many describe her as ‘strong’ because of how she carries on despite the situation with her son, but Monica may have a different opinion. He is, after all, her son and she is simply being a good mother to him.
One thing people adore about their relationship is her ability to relate to her son’s disability with grace and ease.
Of course, that may be due, in part, to the fact that this is not her first time experiencing the disability of a loved one.
Eric, Monica’s younger brother, who she grew up with, was born blind. According to her, it’s the major reason why she sees things differently from many people. It made her more compassionate, sensitive, and patient.
The video has over 100,000 views and lots of comments praising her, her son and her parenting skills.
Way to go, Monica!
