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.

We're packing it up
Well, not truly HOME-home, because neither my husband nor I grew up there,
BUT, Texas is where:
I moved to in 8th grade ... and stayed
(my dad was military, so I was used to moving EVERY.three.YEARS).
Where I fell in love back in 1993 with my amazing husband,
had our first born,
and then our second,
and then eight years after our second decided, "Hey! let's have a third".
Where we owned our first and second home,
made many friends that became "our family",
started my first (and second, and third) careers.
Where my brother recently moved back to (even though he'll be FIVE hours away)
and my other brother is moving to this Spring.
(Now we just need to pack up mom and get her there too.)
we are going HOME.
Back to the same city.
Back to the same schools.
Back to friends and "family" we've known for
all the years we've been married,
celebrated many holidays with,
and who watched our kids grow up.
Back to an area we know and love.
Back to the CI team who diagnosed Aiden and his first
AH.MAZING auditory verbal therapist.
(you know, the one who doubled as my own personal counselor for the first 8 months of A's life)
