My 6 year old son is obsessed with air planes, especially jets. He will run up to anyone in an armed forces uniform and ask if they fly a jet. He will tell anyone that listens that he is going to join the air force and fly jets. There is just one problem, he had an accident when he was 2 and it left him with little to no vision in his lefty eye. The muscles of his eye were damaged beyond repair. His eye is permanently dialated. It breaks my heart to know that he will never be able to fly his jet plane for the air force. A friend told me I should tell him his dream will not happen now, before he gets any older. I don't want to break his heart, but I also don't want him to set his heart on dream that can't happen. What would you do?
