An update on our journey ... Seven weeks old and having her first eye surgery ...
The congenital cataract was confirmed by the pediatrician, the ophthalmologist, and the optical surgeon. Surgery is scheduled for the first week of February to remove the lens of the eye and the cataract. A contact lens will be fit for her eye the following week.
On a more positive note --- I have found some resources that others might benefit from.

There is also a book for kids about this condition -

by Juliette Vignola. There is a companion book about a boy named Jack with a similar story.
