Do you sign with them?
Thank you for that! and Yes, I do sign with both of my girls, my King and I decided before we were wed that we would sign with our children, though at that time we were expecting to have all hearing children. I am deaf and was given ASL as a child, after my parents found out about my deafness, but was also given Hearing Aids and Speech Therapy so I could easily interact with the hearing world around me. Now looking at it, it does make sense for for both of us to have the same brand, but I don't know that medel would work very well for children. I need to speak with my husband about everything, but there is a possibility that I will go with the Cochlear brand. I still have a bit of time before I have to tell the surgeon what I have decided, so my King and I will pray over it, I am sure that God will lead us to the correct decision.
