As a young girl I grew up in a household that was a 1 Parent Family with a Deaf Brother and a Hard Working often Harassed Mum, which often led to poignant, sad, happy and indeed some very funny moments of which helped to shape the core of our Family today. My memories tell you of not remembering having a dad, an older brother who to this day is very important and a very special part of my life, with my childlike innocence and understanding not only of deafness and disability but of being in a Single Parent Family, which later became a Two Parent Family much to mine and my brothers delight, yet the suffering and losses and gains that we all went through to make us all the lil Apples of our own Parents eyes to date. You will shed a tear, laugh, and see from my own perspective just how life can be from my own earliest memories.

@FrancesGibbs Hard work but keeping at it to see how it goes. I wish Mum would hurry up and read it, she hasn't as yet and neither has my brother, so hoping when they do, they will enjoy and like it too. :)
