Significant Challenges Can Actually Help – our KIDS!

The video above was made in 2007. I was implanted with a cochlear implant in 2005 and matched with a service dog in 2007.

My kids have never known me with perfect hearing as my hearing loss began when they were born.

I’ll let the video tell the story.

Your thoughts? Have your own challenges influenced those closest to you?

  1. Thank you for this insightful and personally meaningful post. I live with a deaf man and his 17-year-old son who grew up with two deaf parents. I am hearing. This video gives me more understanding of some of the issues my stepson grew up with.
