Modern Technology has its Victories!


Adele, at Journey to Therese reported the wonder-
ful news that her daughter Therese now has hearing aids and the toddler is now transformed. Adele and her husband in the past year have adopted Therese from a Chinese orphanage. They have 3 other young children, one a newborn. If you've not run across her blog before, it's a real joy to read. I was fascinated going through all her posts a few months back on the lengthy adoption process they had with Therese - they'd only recently found out about her serious hearing deficiency and earlier this week the child received them.

So often modern technology can be used for bad things, which I won't go into here. But it's wonderful to see that a lot of times technology can change someone's life for the better.

Yes, Jackie: You did refer that that early on Fr. Tim's blog. How long has she had them? :-D I hope she doesn't do the "Gee, Mom, I must have had the volume turned down when you were bellowing at me to clean up my/our room!"

:-D

That is wonderful news!
My nephew is pretty much deaf, he has partial hearing in one ear and wears hearing aids. The ability to hear even a little has changed his life dramatically, even just in his development.

Thanks so much for thinking of us and for all your visits and kind comments on our blog. That is very sweet of you!

God bless you and Happy THanksgiving. I have to get back and read your post about Canadians.
