The CI world keeps getting smaller and smaller. In our little circle back in Michigan, my parents' friend's daughter's little boy (sounds like a l ine from Ferris Bueller , right?) was born with a severe/profound hearing loss. I've had the pleasure to get to know Shane's Mommy and follow their journey to implantation and now activation. Today was Shane's Activation Day! For those of us who went through it, we know it's a scary, stressful, but exciting and miraculous day. Our entire family is sending hugs, love, and lots of great Ling Sounds to Baby Shane and his entire family as they truly start their CI journey.
