My Daughter Received the Gift of Hearing

In 2006 surgery restored my daughter's hearing. She had been practically deaf since she was seven--she's now 31--after having chicken pox along with an extremely high fever. Doctors couldn't help her (they said it was nerve damage) and hearing aids never helped at all. She is now married and the mother of a beautiful little girl, Chloe.

My daughter did a lot of research on the Internet and found a doctor in our state who does cochlear implants. We all prayed over her before her appointment and, miraculously, the doctor told her to return for surgery in a week. Now she is fully recovered and, for the first time in 24 years, she hears the birds singing, the telephone ringing, the doorbell, her daughter's voice, etc. Truly that's the best thing that could have ever happened for me. We are all thankful for this miracle. Prayer does work--I know it firsthand.
