Helping our Heidi hear ❤️

Our little rainbow baby has had such a tough time since she’s entered this world. When Heidi was born we had an idea that she was going to be deaf but we didn’t want to believe it. Here we are now 10 months down the road and we got the answers we have been needing. She is 90% severe deaf in the left ear and 55-60% moderate in the right. We found out on Friday 11/17/17 that her hearing aids will run 3,000.00 a piece plus a $250.00 fee. We have great insurance but we recently found out they will not pay a dime towards her hearing aids. I know it’s so close to the Holidays and even if you can’t donate please share. We have to pay it upfront before they will even consider ordering them for us. Daddy, Big sister Hadley & I only want the best for our Heidi boo.

Shawn- “Life isn’t fair most the time unfortunately for this beautiful baby, she will learn that far sooner than I ever had to. I never imagined being the parent of a hearing impaired child but here we are. However, we are going to roll with the punches. It’s all we can do at this time. I don’t worry about little Heidi at all though because she will be raised knowing she is beautiful and unique in her own way. I can’t speak for the world though unfortunately. Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. She will rock the most beautiful hearing aids ever seen.”

Alicia-“Love is deaf.... You can’t just tell someone you love them, you have to show them. Today I had to be strong for her. I had to put my wandering mind aside and be the strong mommy that I thought I could never be. This baby has had such a hard life since she entered this world with having RSV before she was even a month old. Being admitted into the hospital multiple times, lots of trips back and forth to New Orleans and a lot of appointments with different spealists. This is our new normal. I love you beyond words baby girl. Shine big my baby!!!!
