It's Official...

I officially placed the order for Elle's hearing aids. She should get them in about 2 months. The most exciting part about Elle's hearing aids is...
Actually, they are baby pink and the ear molds are clear with sparkles! The hearing aids Elle will be the proud new owner of are super slim and low profile. They are called the Oticon Vigo. The pink ones we are getting are the second from the right in the picture. I can't wait to see our little princess sporting her pink hearing aids. More importantly, I can't wait for her to get to experience the world being able to hear. It will be a whole new world to our little angel.

I just wanted to say "hi" and introduce myself, but am hopeful that I can do this without sounding creepy or stalkerish. I'm not either trait. :) My name is Lindsey, and I live in northern Arizona. I have had a severe-profound hearing impairment since birth, as a result of premature delivery and life-saving medication. Things have certainly changed a lot for a hearing-impaired individual during my lifetime so far! I got my first hearing aids at age 3, and am sooo so glad for Elle that she's receiving hers so soon in her life. It is not always an easy life, in many ways, but it has made all the difference in mine that I had an advocating and strong parent behind me these last 27 years. I now work as a special education teacher and live a relatively normal life despite my hearing loss!!

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, or need perceptions/perspectives/opinions/experience/ideas/etc...? from someone with first-hand experience. I really do mean this. :)

You are doing a wonderful job for your daughter, and for what it is worth, I believe her to be so lucky!
