A Mother’s View (Caroline)
Jack's deafness was a result of pneumococcal meningitis. The initial diagnosis was serious to profound hearing loss and my first words were "will he ever be able to speak". My next thought is how must it feel for him to have had 7 months of sound and then silence.
“Will he ever be able to speak?”
He can do whatever he wants and his deafness definitely doesn’t define him.
