We had an opportunity to meet sweet little Lily last week. She was diagnosed with profound hearing loss shortly after birth, and like Drew, it is a result of Connexin 26. We enjoyed talking with Lily's parents, and hope that we were able to lend support during this time.
Drew enjoyed meeting "baby Lily." And, as his typical self, he enjoyed playing basketball for Lily's parents, showed off his clear understanding of time outs (as he was showing how he can stand on the table) and, as he ate his snack, showed just what a big mess he can make. I hope that Drew showed Lily's parents just how normal life really is for a family with a baby with cochlear implants.
