Atlanta, Georgia
Nearly 18 years ago, I did not understand what sounds meant to me.

They took me to Stoke Mandeville hospital in Aylesbury where I got fitted with some bulky NHS supplied behind-the-ear (BTE) hearing aids. When I was...

I know American Sign Language, yet I am...

Carter was born on March 27, 2009. We were surprised to learn that he had a cleft lip/palate and was missing his right outer ear.

During that time he was diagnosed with a Chromosomal disorder which...
