Hughan is wearing both hearing aids today and looking very well.

I have been playing football in the garden with Jamie and Hughan. First of all Hughan sat at the side and watched while Jamie and I had a bit of a game. Then I helped Hughan playing with Jamie. Hughan always enjoys joining in the fun, and vocalises very well.

Every day after Hughan wakes up, he has his tea in our bedroom and as soon as he sees Willem go into the bathroom he is off to join him. He watches Willem Bath and afterwards they both brushed their teeth, it is just so sweet watching Hughan.

While Willem is at home most of the time he is his shadow.

(I started this website to help other patents with deaf children through our experience. Our son Hughan was born in 1988 and was diagnosed profoundly deaf at 14 months old. We kept a Diary, so his progress could be tracked between our lessons, as we were living in Gaborone in Botswana and traveled every 3 months to the Carel du Toit Centre in Cape Town.)
