Diary Notes – 23 years ago today I wrote in my hearing impaired son’s diary. I was writing up Hughan’s ‘Diary’ so Vanessa, at The Carel du Toit Centre in Cape Town (South Africa), knew what we were doing at home, in Gaborone in Botswana, so she could track Hughan’s progress.
Vil went to play with a friend for the day as Hughan, Grace and I went to Mmabatho shopping. It is about an hour and a half in the car and we also go through a boarder post. It was the first time Grace has been out of Botswana, and she thoroughly enjoyed seeing a bit of the outside world.
Hughan always loves the shops. He was very restless in the car and insisted on coming into the front.
I am having second thoughts of my trip to Zimbabwe.
(Helping parents with hearing impaired children through our experience…we are following our profoundly deaf son’s diary, from 1990, so you can see what we did to help him with his speech and hearing. Hughan is 25 years old now and he can hold a conversation on a phone. It is the little thing we did every day, over a long period of time, that has helped him. Please visit our page…’like’ and follow us to help others…Thank you :) )
