ONE MORE SLEEP TILL HEARING AIDS FOR SWEET JOSEPH !!!



I am just giddy with excitement for tomorrow ... Joseph is getting his super cool FRA colored hearing aids ... Scott has the morning off and our sweet friend Leigh (known to the kids as Leigh Leigh ... she keeps them each Monday for me to work on 147) ... She is in charge of videoing between crying bouts !!! lol ... ... SERIOUSLY NOW, he will hear my REAL VOICE for the first time ... I was just thinking "what if I sound like the teacher on CHARLIE BROWN to him now .... remember -  WA WA WA WA WA WAAAAA" ... We know he can hear somethings, but three different specialist say he has severe to moderate hearing loss in both ears ... Since birth things have been muffled, yet he has taken each day with a JOY that is un-describable except knowing that it is a gift from the Lord ...

I watch him bring smiles to peoples faces all the time and it is because he LOVES life and when he sees you smile back at him, it so much more than a just a smile ... YOU ARE COMMUNICATING to him that he is SEEN and he is WORTHY !!!

My sweet sweet son - you are a treasure to our family.  You truly are my STRENGTH and when you look at me and say, "Mom, I luu looo" there is nothing else I can do, but smile with joy !!! I hear the LORD in your jargon ... thank you for loving me the way you do !!!

Stay tuned for video from the day ...

Oh I remember the ray of sunshine it brought to Candie's eyes when we turned on her hearing aid. She was amazed! Her eyes got so big! It was a precious time!
I love the way you see Joseph just like the Lord sees him! Oh Gwen, how you inspire me and encourage me!
Can't wait little Joseph!
Love,
Laine
