Second Hearing Day

Today we celebrated Drew's second hearing day! Two years ago our son's cochlear implants were activated and he heard his very first sounds. To be honest, the day almost passed as usual. Every day life is just so normal, and Drew hears so well, that I sometimes forget what we went through to get to this day. In a way, that is good, but I always want to remember this day, and give thanks to those who have given our son the opportunity to hear, and learn to communicate with his family, friends and community. We are forever grateful.

As a little hearing present, Drew decided to learn how to put his ears back on himself! When they come off now, he'll pause and put the coil back on his own head. It is wonderful! And he gets so excited each time he successfully puts his ear on, and proclaims, "I did it!" He is growing up right before our eyes and it is just so wonderful to see. I am so happy that God chose me to be his Mommy. I am truly blessed.
