I feel that I some what wasted so many tears just over 2 years ago when we found out our daughter, Saskia, has a moderate to severe hearing loss. So many tears cried, not because she was hearing impaired but rather tears of worry.
We were in shock. We knew she could hear loud noises such as doors slamming, lawns being mowed and raised voices. But what was the clarity like for her? We were told that with hearing aids she would be able to hear better. As all new parents do, I remember clearly thinking “If only I could give you my hearing”.
After speaking to so many wonderful supportive professionals, with the support of our families and friends we decided (which both my husband and I found the easiest decision so far) to bring our daughter up in a hearing world.
Her hearing aid moulds were made. We chose fluoro pink. At the age of 3 months she was fitted with hearing aids. At our Australian Hearing appointment; the nod from our audiologist told us they were “on”. I managed to blurt “Hello Bubba!”. Saskia flung her head around so fast and looked at me in complete surprise! We both filled with tears of joy, tears of relief, our baby girl can hear us clearly for the first time in her short 3 months of life!!
