This is a link to a CNN.com video segment that shows a young boy who has just had his cochlear implant "turned on" - and he is now hearing for the first time in his life.
As I watched this with my wife we both shed tears hoping that Drew can one day be like the boy in this video. We want him to hear us say "I love you". We want him to hear his big sister call him "Duu". We want our dog Eddie to wake him up with a bark. We just want him to have all the abilities he needs to do what he wishes in this life.
This video is uplifting for us - and hopefully for anyone else facing the same issues we are.
