I had germin measels when I was 3 months pregnant. My dr told me to get an abortion cause the child might be deaf, blind or downsindrome. Abortion wasnt an option and I went through with the pregnancy, she was born Jan 07, a beautiful and perfect baby. At the age of 9 months we saw that she wasnt reacting to sound and took her to the dr. She is now 2 and a half years old, wearing hearing aids cause shes got a profound hearing loss and has no speech! She goes to therarpy once a week, but for me it doesnt feel like its working. Can anyone help or have any advice? In 2 weeks time they r going to do tests on her to see if she is compatible for the Cholear Implant. Hopefully when shes got that, things might happen!
