I spoke to one mom who told me that she rarely feels comfortable talking about her experiences raising her deaf children with other families of hearing children, so that being able to spend some time with families living her same situation was so incredible for her.
Two other moms talked schools in the vicinity and discussed speech therapist options. Another mom had a question about batteries and processors. We all talked CIs. A gentleman walked up to me and asked why Batman and Robin came, were they here for a party. I said it isn't a party, it's a group of parents hanging out who share the cochlear implant in common. He said that his wife's cousin had one of them things. I said, "Really?" He said, "Yeah, it changed his life..."
It certainly has changed the lives of the families at that park and for two hours, we talked all about it...
