Just had to share this SIMPLY.AMAZING video. The perseverance, determination, and hope this sweet boy and his family have shine through and through.
The whole thing is weighing heavy on my heart .... how every hearing journey can be SO different, yet SO very much the same,
the WE WON'T GIVE UP states of mind ... the determination, the TEARS,
theYEARS of therapy ... the hope, the WANT ...
the ELATION as they reach each and every little (yet so big ) milestone that you work so hard to reach. how HARD all our sweet ones work.
Then there's the song.
The song is Fix You by Coldplay. This song reminds me so much from the past four years. I used to listen to this song, along with others from Cold Play, over and over, as I would go on long walks, pregnant with Aiden, after spending afternoons with my father (who had severe dementia and was in a nursing home at the time). I'd walk and cry. I continued to listen to this song after I found out Aiden was deaf and all throughout this journey. I haven't heard it in quite awhile, so this song + this video = many tears. It reminded me of how much we've been through, how much we've overcome, and how far we still have to go. It also reminded me, we're not alone.
Be prepared. Grab a tissue. (and turn off the music on the right before playing).
