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.
Friends joined us. Five hours on the road to Karoi with 5 of us in my little Laser Ford car. It was a bit of a squash as you can imagine.
We stopped of at the Chinhoyi Cave on our travels. It is the most amazing place! The water in the caves is blue, blue, almost unreal and it is a must to visit.

(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 :) )
