I can no longer tollerate senseless, unprovoked attacks here simply because of some of the choices I have made for my family and my deaf daughter. For a group of people to...

    Why do people who are strictly against cochlear implants come to the HA CI section to upset people? There are several sections of all deaf that I stay out of simply because I disagree with what is being said there. If some one hates CI, why do they feel welcomed to come to this section, make a...

    Raising a daughter

    I picked up a book today called "Father to Daughter". It is a book of quotes from fathers that have raised successful daughters. While reading them it occured to me that all of the quotes are good, but a few of them really stick out as good advice when raising a deaf daughter. I put a couple of...
