"Sometimes I feel belittled as a deaf person."
Van Scheppingen family
"It was really kind of a relief when we heard Emiel was deaf."
"Your first thought is: the world is ending. But it's not ending, another world just opens itself up."
"Would he ever be able to hear music, or the rain beating against the window? That was quite important to me."
"I love having a deaf child, that's hard to explain."
"I think bonding and interacting with your child is the most important thing."
"The first year was very busy, so many appointments. We barely had time to enjoy it."
"Now that I see how happy they are, I worry a lot less."
"Our parents gave us confidence: you're great, just the way you are."
"We're religious, and I immediately noticed this having an effect on my faith."
"At first, very small things could make me incredibly sad."
"You end up in this medical scene, I almost forget to enjoy having my child."
"It's important for children to be able to be themselves."
"The realization really hit us: we're responsible for this now."
"What can I do now?"
