One thought on “Events

  1. Hi Katherine,

    I have been following your blog, and it is a an interesting read because I can learn from you since I have a profound hearing loss since I was 5 years old. I have worn hearing aids since then but with technology, it has been a tremendous improvement that I thank God. I try to do the best as I can with this hearing loss that has been a HUGE CHALLENGE in my life, and it still is. (Very stressful when it comes to the hearing world!) No matter how much educational classes there are for humans to know about well being, we cannot cure hearing loss or get rid of it. It is there, and we have to make the best out of it in this hearing world!

    Am hoping that we will continue to communicate if you are interested. I have been meaning to get your first book… 🙂
