“It’s taken so long to get to this point and every progress milestone I have is thanks to Jennifer, Dr. Rodgers, Leslie, Linda, and every one of you who helped make this possible. Thank you again for changing my life. I can hear my sister  in the backseat of the car while driving. I can listen to PODCASTS and learn something new, a whole world of listening that was foreign to me even just two years ago. I can make phone calls and talk to people in stores. I’m proud of my identity as a deaf CI-borg, and still learning ASL with one of my good friends locally. You guys changed my life and I’m so incredibly blessed to have met y’all. You’re awesome! Thank you for all the hard work!”
