Gabrielle Louise (2016)
Call her Gabbie. Isn't she lovely? She loves to dance, though she can't hear any music.
"Your child is profoundly deaf."
These are the words that extremely broke our hearts.
My husband and I are singers. We used to write songs. WE SING. Music is our LIFE.
So, how did it feel when you found out that our child is deaf?
Imagine the feeling when you sing a lullaby to put her to sleep. You know she can't hear it, but you sing for her anyway.
Imagine her loving to see the birds fly, but she can't hear them sing.
Imagine her loving the water, but she can't hear the splash.
Imagine us telling her "I love you!", but she can't hear a word.
We realized that we have taken for granted little blessings we have, like hearing a baby’s cry, the birds by our windows, the crickets at night.
I encourage you to take a minute, close your eyes, appreciate and listen to the sound of the world and thank the Lord for the GIFT of hearing.
We get a lot of this question, “Can she speak?” The answer is, “No.” Because she can’t hear words then she can’t speak.
Like you, Gabbie will be able to HEAR and SPEAK too!
Through advanced technology, the Cochlear Implants, more powerful than hearing aids! :)
What is a Cochlear Implant?
We know that this journey will not be easy but as parents, we want her to give the gift of hearing.
We are raising at least 2.5 million pesos for the operation, hospitalization, devices and therapies.
Can you help us bless her with this gift?
