Callie is reaching new heights.
Three years ago, Jordanna and Brad’s daughter, Callie was born. Shortly after birth, the couple were told their daughter was profoundly deaf.
For Jordanna and Brad, though, this was a difficult time for a different reason as they are both deaf themselves. The question for them was, how can we give our child every opportunity? How can we help her to thrive in a hearing world?
Knowing that hearing aids were not powerful enough, her parents decided to pursue a cochlear implant to help Callie learn to listen and speak.
“Our decision to get a cochlear implant was a difficult one, but I really wanted to think about what was best for my daughter,” said Jordanna. “I wanted to give her the whole world; to have all the experiences she could and to have all the opportunities available to her.”
In 2018 RIDBC will support 3,000 families out of more than 10,000 in Australia whose babies are born with significant vision or hearing loss. Can you help us to reach more families by donating today?
