The simple sound of rain...

Before having a child with deafness I never stopped to listen to the rain. I find that that is true with many sounds around me. I am grateful for the small and simple things that I am able to experience through Logan.
Yesterday it rained pretty heavily for about an hour. We sat outside and listened as each drop hit the ground. We walked down to the retention basin on our street and listened as the frogs croaked in the rising water. The sound of live frogs was something Logan had never heard before--again, small and simple things...

Thats awesome, I wish i can sit outside and listen but haven't got a porch... :-(

I can hear the rain lashing on the top of my car but it's nothing same as it lashing onto ground and giving the grass the fresh scent.

How beautiful! It's incredible how much you notice once you have a deaf child, isn't it? I had a similar experience at a football game recently, really noticing sounds around me. I can't wait until my son has his implant and can join me in noticing them.

Hi,
We found your blog through Drew's blog. This post made cry. :) It is the simple things that we desire for our children isn't it. It is amazing how our deaf children tuned us parents into the sounds around us. Thank you for this post!
