    I’ve seen a couple of these posted here on the HG site. . . In the interest of spreading awareness, I just wanted to point out that this is a widely controversial topic within the Deaf community.

    I wasn’t born deaf and neither were my children; however all three of us have sensorineural hearing loss – we think it’s a genetic component. I was so happy to get hearing aids and my kids have hearing aids – I love being able to talk to them and tell them I love them. I also am happy that they have hearing aids – I truly don’t want them to struggle, as I did, with hearing loss that was undiagnosed. Life is already hard enough.
