I've been emailing with a Mom from the east coast of the United States for several months now. Her son Ben was born in January with profound hearing loss. They are just beginning their cochlear implant candidacy. Through the wonderful world of the Internet, she was able to find Drew's blog, and we have talked at length about our path to hearing for Drew. She has decided to start a blog for Ben, and one of her first posts reminded me of one of the reasons why we wanted to start a blog for Drew as soon as we learned of his hearing loss. So to Ben's Big Family, we are so happy to have "met" you and so glad that we can help. You're at the beginning of an amazing road for your little boy!
Also, when Always Gone Dad left a comment on one of my recent posts, I was able to find Amelia's Journey. Amelia was just activated last week, and her dad just posted her activation video. Very exciting!
And, you'll want to check out six year old Brianna's story! She is waiting her activation in under one week! We've been reading his blog for awhile now, but Christian is scheduled for activation on May 27th!
I'm so glad that the Internet has been able to bring us all together. I know that Drew's Dad and I were really inspired by several little ones, as we went through the candidacy process for Drew's cochlear implants. I'm glad that we are now able to help others in the same way that those who have gone before us were able to help Drew and our family.
