Amanda's activation. It's actually here. Her hook-up will really happen tomorrow.
What a journey it's been! It has taken us so much to get this far.
And here it is. Here we are.
Amanda has been asking for this moment since she was 10 1/2. She has just turned 14. All this time. She didn't waver. She didn't give up. This is what she's wanted for 3 1/2 years andit is now here. The night before.
Amanda has never heard anything. Never ever. Not once. We wonder how she will respond to her very first sound.
We imagine amazement...then enjoyment...and hopefully with lots of input and practice, understandment. Yes, I know it's not a word, but it should be!
We hope her activation will bring positive results and that she'll be able to incorporate sound into her life in ways that are enjoyable and productive.
The time is almost here. The first step is only 16 hours and 34 minutes away.
