  1. Thank you for posting your story. I remember the crying and the worry and the constant explaining. My son’s hearing loss is very similar. He’s always been very verbal, so when I was first telling people, there were so many questions. It felt like I was having to convince other people…as if they thought I was lying to them. It was also a struggle to get him to keep his hearing aids in, so it was a while before I made the commitment to having him wear his hearing aids in public. Again, I thank you for your openness.

    • Thank you, Shari! I’m so glad you found this site and thank you for commenting. It’s always amazing to hear from others who are going through the same things. It’s amazing to me how even a mild earring loss can effect almost every aspect of a child’s life. I’ve found that people don’t understand what it means to have a earring loss. They think it’s like the volume has turned down instead of realizing that speech is garbled. I feel like I’m constantly having to explain an justify Luke’s aids to people. But, I will continue to do so! We were really lucky with Luke keeping his aids in. His audiologist and teacher of the deaf are still shocked by how well he does with them! I’m glad to hear that your little guy is getting better about keeping them in. I’m sure that’s incredibly frustrating!!

      Thanks again for stopping by and reading!!
