1 Diagnosed With Hearing Impairment
Soon after birth on January 2nd in 2015, Elijah cook was diagnosed with poor hearing. He could only hear upto 75 decibels in his right ear and was almost deaf in his left ear. The problem worsened after developing ear infection. For Ahavah, the tragic circumstance of Elijah losing his hearing was a challenge. The baby would never know his moms voice and could never respond to it. For an entire month, the trauma made Ahavah an emotional wreck.
But as traumatized and emotional the parents were, they were also resilient and determined enough to not allow their little boy be defeated of his predicament. They would not deprive him of his most precious moments and that was the baby hearing his mom’s voice for the first time.
