In the midst of all the craziness, we took some time last week to celebrate Sophie's hearing birthday! It's been three years since her implants were activated and she first heard the amazing sounds of the world. She has achieved so much in just a few years and I can only imagine what else she is going to accomplish as she gets older. Activation day brought us so much hope and excitement, but I never would have guessed how much she would excel. When I look back and reflect on our journey, it is pretty surreal. One of the best parts of parenting such a special child is sharing our story with others and giving them hope. If I had only known where we would be today, those early days would have been much easier and my tears would have been saved for another day.
Here is a little clip of our girl, just three years in to her journey. Isn't it amazing?
