We're a Team!

Thanks to…


Rick & Kathy’s (CDA III "parents") close observance of A...

Jen setting up the appointment at Neuro Center...

Katrina taking A. in for the ABR hearing test (involves lots of walking and a long bus ride with a wiggly toddler)...

Katrina taking A. in AGAIN, because the neurologist and anesthesiologist had an emergency the first time...


Jen picking up the results...

Maria picking up the receipt when it was finally ready...

Rene at Starkey Foundation for agreeing to help us again...

Suma, Starkey Foundation’s audiologist, reading the results and confirming the hearing loss...

Audiocien of Cochabamba for making the two custom hearing aid molds for A (for free!)....



Katrina taking in A. to be measured for the molds...

...and again when they couldn't make them the first time

Denise taking a picture of the hearing aids when they arrived so that they knew better how to make A's molds

Orphan World Relief's donation to cover Starkey's minimal fee for the two hearing aids...



Denise bringing the hearing aids in her luggage...

Denise taking A. to pick up the molds and get them attached to the hearing aids...

And the Alseth family learning how to care for them and use them...


Our beautiful A. has two beautiful hearing aids!!!!!

That is so great. I can't imagine how much that means to her.

It was quite possibly the coolest thing in the world to get both the hearing aides put in at the office for the very first time and to have the woman say A´s name when she wasn´t looking and having her turn her head immediately to see what the woman wanted! And the look of delight on her face! So cool!
