five? yes, five!

(that is the recap) and this post was real time.
i can hardly believe what a daily miracle m's cochlear implants have been.
(the anesthesiologist) 
 (post surgery by a few hours)
(the next day)

i can say without a shadow of a doubt that one of my least expected, 
(for a season most grieved) and ultimately
greatest gifts has been to have a deaf daughter.
i cannot imagine m being born with typical hearing,
and i can't imagine her without her implants.

every day we are blessed to have the sound of her voice filling our home and our hearts with songs, shouts, protests, stories, tantrums, and laughter.

so, so grateful for the surgery that changed her life and ours. 


  1. I could not agree with you more, if you know what i mean. a blessed challenge. totally convinced i am a better person for having a deaf child. xoxoxo to you all.

  2. Our surgery date is scheduled for 6/6 of this year. I want to be able to write this exact same post on 6/6/19. Thank you for posting this.

  3. They are a miracle. We just celebrated my sons 4th hearing birthday and had his baby sister's cochlear implant surgery the next day. So very thankful for this technology !

  4. Oh my goodness. I have such vivid memories of that waiting room...of her purple headwrap...of all the anticipation and energy of the time. I am a little misty-eyed over here. xox
