How does blindness affect a druid’s Wild Shape?

One of my PC’s is a halfling druid (Circle of the Shepherd) who was born blind. She has a familiar that she can see through and years of rigorous training of her senses gave her 10 ft. blindsight, not in a way she can actually see but she can sense enemies in combat and such. My questions are: do creatures she’s seen through her familiar count for Wild Shape? And when she wildshapes, would she still be blind?

You retain the benefit of any features from your class, race, or other source and can use them if the new form is physically capable of doing so. However, you can’t use any of your special senses, such as darkvision, unless your new form also has that sense.

Emphasis is mine. It’s a bit nebulous. You can’t use any of your special senses, but does her blindsight qualify? Would the beast be blind to begin with, or would she be able to see?
