Our precious little boy, Aiden, was diagnosed at birth with profound hearing loss in both ears; he was born deaf. This site is to help journal my feelings, keep family and friends updated on our son's journey, but more than anything, I hope our story can help ease another family's worries as so many other families have eased mine.
Another chapter in our life opens ... this is Our Journey to and beyond cochlear implants ... Our Journey to let Aiden hear.

Dear Blog ...
I promise I haven't forgotten about you, but in the midst of Christmas, then three days later packing up a Uhaul - driving to our new state - closing on a new home - and unpacking the Uhaul - all in less than 48 hours, with three kids and two cats, I have had to put you on hold.
PS - Oh, and better yet, Aiden has decided to play hide and seek with one of his CI's, which has gone MIA. After three days of searching, still NOTHING. We know it's somewhere in all this mess, but of course, nowhere easy. So today I get to go through TONS of packing paper STUFFED into four huge wardrobe boxes ... because I have nothing better to do.
At least I can look outside and see this.
It feels AMAZING to be home in the Midwest, MUCH closer to family, starting a new chapter in our lives, in a new year, in a new home, with a whole new journey ahead.
God is GREAT. We have SO many blessings to be thankful for.
