Chicago Suburbs, Illinois
Although my hearing loss doesn't define me, it has definitely affected me!  I grew up with a bilateral hearing loss that was discovered when I was 4 years old.  I wore a hearing aid and was mainstreamed in school.  It's never been determined what caused my hearing loss, but I suspect it's genetic.

Atlanta, Georgia
Nearly 18 years ago, I did not understand what sounds meant to me. Every morning for the first few weeks, when I was a rough little three-year old child, my mother had to sit on me in order to get the magnet on my head. I know that sounds cruel of my mother, but I am grateful to her for doing this because she has taught me that it is unimaginable to live in a silent world. Today, I understand...
