You may not know it, but our eldest (Jacob, 4) is an extra special kid. He was born with a congenital birth defect called 'Grade 3 Microtia and Atresia'. Microtia quite literally translates to 'little ear', and Atresia is the absence of an ear canal. As such, he has a unilateral hearing loss, and does not have access to sound on the right side without his hearing aid.
