    WOW….brought me to tears. My son is now 1 and has a moderate hearing loss. At 3 months of age he got hearing aides and when they put them on and I said "HI" to him the first time and he looked at me and had a huge smile on his face. It just melted my heart like this video. Technology these days is awesome. Though my son will is not severe enough for a cochlear implant his hearing aides allow him to communicate with us now. I remember getting home and being outside and just sitting there in silence as he took all the new sounds in. Its hard at times when people at malls or restaurants make comments about his aides or make fun of my wife, daughter (4 yrs old and signs with her bro and understands what she is saying) for signing to him but we just Keep Calm and Chive On. Thank you Chive for your inspiration to keep moving forward.

      I understand just what u mean. My mom is deaf and has hearing aides. We sign all the time and get these weird looks. My mom taught me that signing is just like speaking another language. I bet u already tell ur kids something wonderful. Just commenting to give some support. Also, think of things like this: the leader of the free world must be "different" why else would they take on such a task. "Different" is a matter of opinion. In my opinion.

    When people ask me what the Chive is all about, it's things like this that make is impossible to really describe until they've been here and experienced it. 5 minutes ago I'm staring at some cleavage, now I got a face full of onions. KCCO
