I am a parent that has overcome "silence" in a world of noise that sometimes forgets the meaning of hearing. The struggles that families have. The day to day hardships inside and out of a family. Hands & Voices has helped me beyond measure to SCREAM out the importance for all children and people with any form of hearing loss. Helping me to advocate in ways I did not know I could. I am grateful for the opportunities I continually have to SPEAK out on behalf of all of our children.
