Saturday 18/05/90 – Cape Town

Hughan and I traveled to Cape Town and we arrived at lunchtime.

It is a lovely feeling to be back.

Vanessa. Thank you for your letter. It’s been great hearing from you.

We feel Hughan has been responding well to our voices. He is still having ear drops in both ears, but since he has been unable to use his hearing aids, I feel he had been giving us better eye contact.

We hope you will see a change in him. We have had great fun with him and he is still a good little boy.


Best wishes


(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.)
