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.
