I was a single mother of a hearing son. I taught him to sign when he was a toddler. He had problem with his speech because he mimic my speech which I have a deaf accent and mispronounced words. He does not like to sign in public and preferred to sign at home. People stared at him because we were signing. I thought it would have been easy to raise one child but I was wrong. It was difficult to raise a child who has or had behavior problems. So it does not matter whether you raise one or more children in the family. Every child is unique in their own personality. Now he is all grown up and is 36 years old. When I visited him and his family, he signed with me in public and not feel embarrass in public. I was surprised. He also refused to go into interpreters training to become interpreter so that he can earn money but he rather choose another job or career that he like to work with. He is married and have five children of his own. That make me the grandmother of hearing grandchildren. :)

Hard Of Hearing (HOH) is a level of hearing loss being in mild to moderate and maybe severe hearing loss also. If you were not born hard of hearing or deaf, then you are Late Deafened.

I was born deaf except that I could make it out the sounds (very severe hearing loss) with my only hearing aid (left ear) and totally profound deafness on my right ear. Everyone has different degrees of hearing loss. No one is the same.
