I hope this site will enable family and friends, near and far, to stay connected with Faith. We look forward to sharing news about Faith and precious memories with you for years to come! Feel free to use our contact page to contact us.
Faith is a five year old that has a tremendous amount of energy. Faith was born with a hearing loss, this has not slowed her down. Faith has many accomplishments to her name. At 2 years of age Faith would scale a forty foot rock wall, just to name one. There are so many things Faith has done that make her mother and father proud.
Faith received an Advanced Bionics cochlear implant in September 2008. This was a very difficult decision for us. We have come to find out that this is one of the best decisions we have made thus far. Faith amazes us every day with her speech progress, from "not right now" to "Oh shit" and "dammit" (ok, so not so appropriate vocab for a 5 year old, however, she uses it in totally appropriate context!)
Faith is going to attend a regular Kindergarten setting with a 2:1 full inclusion assisstant with one of her classmates from her current special day communication preschool setting. She is already counting to 20 using sign to help her recall number names, and recognizing numerals 0-7. She is reading simple pattern books with fingerpointing. She is also working on recognizing her letters (F, a, i, t, h, d-daddy, j-jo-jo, c-carly, b-bo-bo, r-Rylie, and m-Mickey Mouse).
Faith loves horseback riding, swimming, playing video games and watching movies.
