I love to write. I am a big fan of blogs about hearing loss especially hearing loss in children. Both of my kids are deaf and wear cochlear implants.

Lucas Mommy ..

Manheim, Pennsylvania
I'm Jen, mom to Lucas (b. 12-23-07), born with profound sensorineural hearing loss. He wore hearing aids for 9 months without any benefit, and received a cochlear implant in his right ear 3 days after his first birthday. He loves to hear with his new "ear"!

Our son Kemper was born profoundly deaf due to a flawed Connexin 26 gene. In January of 2010 he received bilateral cochlear implants at the age of 9 months. We enjoy hearing about and talking to others that have taken the cochlear implant journey.
