Hear The World

After I wrote yesterday's post, I was surfing around some of my favorite sites and came across this post over at 5 Minutes for Giveaways. There's a great give-away going on right now, highlighting an initiative called Hear the World. It's all about hearing loss, hearing loss prevention, and some of the exciting new treatments available for those with hearing loss. As you can imagine, this particular initiative is near and dear to our hearts. Please, head over to this post and check out the giveaway. But more importantly, head over to Hear the World and educate yourself a little bit more about hearing loss. After all, you all know at least one precious little one affected by hearing loss, now don't you?!

Great site - didn't know it was there - really not enough awareness out there for folks like us!

I enjoyed Friday's post about acknowledging your daughter's special need. My daughter is visually impaired, but most days I don't even think about it. Then she'll trip going up a curb or not recognize one of her siblings who has just walked into the room, and I'll realize just how amazing it is that my daughter tackles the world with such vigor!

The challenge for me lies in acknowledging the need without setting limits on what my child can accomplish. I know God has a wonderful plan for her life, and I often have to step back and let her explore the world without my fear for her tainting the moment.

Enjoy your kids!
