Hello! I am a "hearing" mom to a baby with hearing loss. We found out our sweet baby girl was deaf/hard of hearing after she failed the newborn hearing screening. We are from a rural area so we've had to drive many hours to see audiologists and ENTs. The diagnosis is bilateral sensorineural hearing loss. She is 11 weeks old and getting her first pair of hearing aids next week. We've been discouraged from teaching her sign but I feel ASL is important. I'm striving to become somewhat proficient so I can raise her in a bilingual environment. I just want to give her the best possible future. Ok, enough about me. I can’t wait to get to know all of you!
