Deafness Was Her Choice

Cover Image

I wasn’t born deaf, but it happened, somehow. I was in and out of hospitals for the newest cochlear implant technology for years. Mom fought for me at every turn, alone and young she fought. We talked, we signed, I grew happy and loved then I made a decision.

I choose to go to a deaf school
I choose to not wear my implants  

I choose to be deaf

I  think that’s how she’ll say it to me, when she gets the courage up.

“baby, I love your choice” I'll say.
