Description

True Love Really Exists. Love Is Blind: A True Romance is a true biographical love story about two people afflicted with different disabilities. It shows that for a long-lasting, successful relationship, true love is what's important. In fact, it's all that really matters. The lead characters are Grant and Valerie Hyde. Little Grant Hyde was born prematurely in 1950 and placed in an incubator infused with pure oxygen. Unfortunately this undiluted oxygen was too much of a good thing as it also caused retinopathy, severe vision impairment that would only worsen over time.

By the summer of 1993 both Grant Hyde and Valerie Boyer had learned to deal with their respective disabilities and settled into the routines of living in their respective southern California communities. Grant in Chula Vista, a suburb of San Diego, and Valerie in one of the nation's original planned communities - Irvine. By the time the 90's rolled around, Val in her early 30's and Grant in his early 40's, after enduring life's trials and tribulations and dodging its slings and arrows, each still had the belief that their lives were destined to be more. They hadn't given up on love, on finding that special person with whom they could feel totally comfortable, who would accept them for who they were. Both Grant and Valerie were
