Mexicali, Mexico!!!!

Hello Folks,

 

Just got back from Mexicali, Mexico where 750 kids were fitted with the Gift of Better Hearing!  
One neat experience took place where this Grandpa got his first set of
hearing aids in 55 years. His  sweet wife, kids, and grandkids came to see their
 Patriarch hear for his very first time. As I did some speech therapy with him, 
he started forming these words in his mouth that he's never uttered  before. 
His family started crying tears of joy and was overwhelmed with joy!
The Gift of Sound is something we all take for granted! 
Let us cherish the beautiful sounds around us on a daily basis.

What a beautiful story! Thank you so much for sharing it. You must have some wonderful experiences with the work that you do, and I'm sure that one was especially tender.
