    On a personal Note:

    I would like to ask for thoughts & prayers for my little sister, Ashlee & her daughter, Maggie Cole. They found out yesterday that Maggie Cole (15 months) is not able to hear. She has a second appt. next Friday where they (should) determine if it is caused by genetics or if it's just not developed. From what I understand, if it is genetic, Maggie Cole will qualify for an implant hearing aid with which she will be able to hear some. If it's not genetic, there isn't going to be a lot they can do for her hearing. I'll keep you updated on how the tests go. Until then, please keep her & my family in your thoughts & prayers. We all know it could be so much worse & are so thankful she is such a healthy & happy baby.

    My families prayers and thought are with Maggie Cole and her mom. I have an adult friend who just got a cochlear implant about a year ago, she may be able to help with info and support groups if needed.

    Summer-I'll say a little prayer for the strength your family will need in this. Having each other to lean on is important, and I'll be thinking of you all. Keep us updated on this, OK?

    Summer, my thoughts and prayers go out to all of your family. It can be hard having a special needs child, but they are such blessings! We started sign with MJ when she was 13 months. If you need any help or info, I or TalkingHands would be happy to help you!

    Thank you all so much for your kind words. I would personally appreciate any information any of you can give me on anything! I've (of course) done lots of research today online, but it's just so overwhelming. I'd rather have more info than not enough though.
    Yes Melissa, that is my little minnie mouse. We've suspected she's had hearing problems for a while now- especially since she hasn't spoken any words yet. We just didn't know how severe it was. Her ped told Ashlee not to worry too much at first, then decided she should see a specialist. The first one didn't help too much, so that's when they made the appt. at the Children's hopsital in Birmingham (where they went yesterday).

    Thanks again for all of the thoughts & kind words. I really appreciate it.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to her and her family. The can do some wonderful things with implants nowadays, and since she is so young they probably will be able to restore her hearing so she can develop speech.
