Family of 6 on a world tour before their kids lose sight.

When Canadian parents Edith Lemay and Sebastien Pelletier first noticed that their daughter Mia had vision impairments, she was only three years old.

Mia was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa, a rare genetic disorder that results in a loss of eyesight over time.

By this time, the parents observed that their two boys, Laurent, now 5, and Colin, now 7, were exhibiting the same symptoms.

Once the couple had come to terms with the news, they concentrated on giving their kids the tools they would need to navigate in life.

the couple wanted to do something for Mia and the other kids when Mia's specialist suggested that they engage her with "visual memories."

They instantly started planning to spend a year touring the world with their children.

The family made an itinerary before they left, sort of like a bucket list. Laurent wanted to sip juice while riding a camel, while Mia wanted to go horseback riding.

Lemay and Pelletier admit that the diagnosis is always on their mind but they are focusing on being present and on positive things.
