Blind girl gets braille Harry Potter books for Christmas


#Christmas was certainly a magical time for this little girl.

#Emrie was born with a very rare genetic anomaly that left her blind and began learning braille when she was just four-years-old.

#Now seven, her dad had been reading the #Harry #Potter books to her each night until she wanted to start reading them herself.

“They would relive the magic for days as #Emrie never forgot a single detail of the wonderful world she heard her daddy read about,” her aunt #Kateyn #Suter said.

“They have recently stopped reading them because #Emrie wants to read them herself, she wants to put her finger to the paper and fly through #Hogwarts too.

“Unfortunately, we soon discovered that the #Harry #Potter books in braille are extremely expensive and not very accessible.”

#Mrs #Suter, from #Kansas #City in the US, found one book alone cost as much as $360 so she started a fundraiser after followers on her #Instagram page wanted to donate.

“Many libraries do not even have them as an option. #This broke my heart,” she said.

“The #Harry #Potter books range from $100 to 400 for just one single book, this is a shame as everyone should have access to books!

“I am hoping with a little help that we can give this little girl the gift of magic for #Christmas as well as possibly supply the local libraries with a set too.”

#Mrs #Suter kept her followers updated on the arrival of the books, which unfortunately didn’t make it until the day after #Christmas.

#With many eagerly awaiting the video of #Emrie seeing her present, #Mrs #Suter made sure captured the beautiful moment.

#Emrie’s reaction is priceless when at first she seems underwhelmed, as most children are when they open books for #Christmas.

#But when she realises they’re #Harry #Potter – well, you’ll just have to watch the video:

#At the end of the video she feels around for more boxes – there are 13 of them, with more than 50 still to arrive to be donated to libraries after #Mrs #Suter raised $4226.

#Her aunt also posted a sweet thank you message from #Emrie to her #Instagram stories.

#Mrs #Suter said the donations meant the world to them and made their #Christmas so special.

“As you can see she is beyond excited to be able to read the #Harry #Potter books herself,” she said.

#Mrs #Suter runs a cookie business and has previously shared another sweet video of #Emrie reading her name on a treat.
