Nearly 5 years ago we were blessed with number 3, very unexpected but worth it. My story is to encourage getting a newborn hearing test done on your young one. We were given the test but they couldn’t get clear results which meant repeated trips to the hospital to be tested. At 5 months old the doctor finally turned around and said to us there are good child services available. We then learnt our little daughter was profoundly deaf. This lead into hospital visits, hearing aids, more testing and then finally cochlear implant. We didn’t want to go down that road but it was our only option. We now have a 4 year old with 2 implants at mainstream kinder doing really well. She is still behind in language but her talking is heaven to us. Please get your children checked.
