This adorable video shows a 13-month-old Daisy Smith, who was born with no eyes. She splashes around in the pool, which displays her immense love for water.

Daisy has anophthalmia, a rare condition which results in the absence of one or both eyes. While she was expecting, Danielle was informed the baby had a cyst on her brain, and doctors offered her she could end the pregnancy. She and Smith decided to keep her, and offer the girl a normal childhood, among the possibilities.
