Wednesday 07/08/91 – The Sand Pit


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. 

I lost the stone in my engagement ring over a year ago in the sandpit at the house. I have decided that I am going to go through it, sieving out the fine sand and washing the other sand. It is builders sand so it is not all fine.

Hughan has been a great help. He turns on and off the tap for me and plays with the fine sand I have sieved.

(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 :) )
