I think of you
I know your fear
You’ve just been told
Your child cannot hear

Emotions
A rollercoaster
Denial! Anger! Fear!
What will become of your child so dear…

Believe me, see me, feel me
Mom, Dad we are here
Many of us still have this fear

Believe me, see me, feel me
Mom, Dad we are here
Many of us have seen
Resilience, Patience, Persistence
Many of us continue to travel this journey
Unique, Precious, Inspiring

What will become, what will the future hold
Will she dance, hear my voice, find a love
Will he succeed; hear his mate call from across the field
What will become, what will the future hold

Mom, Dad we are here
Believe me, see me, feel me
We know your fears…

Believe me
She will dance; she will hear your voice
Be it through sound or through the magical dance of your hands
Believe me
He will succeed and hear his mate call from across the field
Be it through sound or through the magical dance of the hands

Mom, Dad
I think of you
I know your fear
You’ve just been told
Your child cannot hear
Believe me, see me, feel me
We are here
Many of us have faced this fear
A loss amplified by love, resilience and hope so dear

Mom, Dad
Believe me, see me, feel me
Your child can hear your heartbeat
Through the touch of your hand, the look in your eyes
A loss amplified by love, resilience and hope so dear
