“When we first heard of Lachlan’s diagnosis, I was completely shattered and cried for 12 hours straight. I was so worried about what the future would hold for our son,” Michelle said. “I thought Lachlan would not be able to talk, make friends and I was worried he would get teased. I now know that whilst those thoughts were completely normal, they are not true.”
Because Lachlan’s hearing impairment was detected early on, the Levers were able to decide on a plan of action and then immediately get him the help they wanted for him. As it turns out, Lachlan began saying his first words at about 6-months-old. He is now an energetic 2-year-old chatterbox who continues to progress at an age-appropriate pace with his speech development.
“It’s such a happy, special moment,” Michelle said. “My baby’s world just opened up, it was so emotional. Now that it’s gone viral I’m reliving that moment all over again.”
