HUGE THANK YOU TO AIDEN'S CI TEAM
How do you show SINCERITY
to a team of individuals
who have given you
something you will FOREVER
How do communicate appreciation to
who provided your child with
something that will IMPACT his
What can you possibly give someone,
whom you respect and admire
beyond words, for all their
hard work, DEDICATION, and care
to your child?
How can you possibly show all this to
a phenomenal team that has provided
your deaf child
THE CHANCE TO HEAR?
We gave them many, many thank you's,
a big ol' cake, huge hugs,
and bittersweet tears.
We also give them
to not take Cochlear Implant technology
for granted, knowing
it's not a "simple fix"
but a continuous WORK IN PROGRESS.
there will always be challenges.
to fully commit ourselves to face
these challenges head on,
to not give up and know, no matter how frustrating,
they CAN BE OVERCOME.
to know that you gave him the "tools"
to hear, and now it's up
to us to PROVIDE EXPERIENCES
and proper therapy to use this
hearing "hardware and software" to open up
a world of hearing and spoken language.
to "PLAY" with Aiden everyday
enriching his mind with
language and listening opportunities.
to appreciate and respect all the
sounds our world has to offer and to
TAKE THE TIME TO STOP AND LISTEN,
as each moment is an opportunity to learn.
to EMBRACE this journey for
the miracle it is,
and walk hand in hand with Aiden
and cherish every single SIMPLY AMAZING moment.
as without the technology of
without his amazing surgeon, Dr. Niparko,
audiologist, Miss Jill, and team of therapists,
this all wouldn't be possible.
Our GRATITUDE to our surgeon, our audiologist,
and the whole support team
at Johns Hopkins Listening Center
is beyond anything that words or a cake can say.
We THANK YOU from the
bottom of our hearts,
for providing our son with
the chance to hear.WE WILL MISS YOU!
