I think the point is, many of the deaf here in AD feel that hearing parents were not given the information we thought they most needed to hear: the experience of deaf people growing up in a hearing world.
The support we needed, the isolation we felt, the ignorance we experienced... I don't believe these issues all go away just because a child receives a CI.
True. Sociologists have found a lot of uncertainty among parents of deaf children, even after the decision was made. Just notice how perfect some parents here try to appear with their choices and how personal they take everything.
