Grandmother of deaf bilaterally implanted deaf child, Mother of her deaf father
by Grandma Judy
Up until this ridiculous custody battle where the family court judge has ordered that my deaf son's deaf daughter MUST keep her CIs on ALL the time, I was for the CI. Now if I had it to do over, I would say, Let her stay deaf! He may get his parental rights taken away over this and I don't know that he will have funds to appeal. He is without an attorney now except for a public defender for the contempt charges the hearing mom has filed against him. The trial is May 13, 2010 at Kootenai County courthouse in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, Judge James Stow presiding.(I would like to say "honorable" but I just can't bring myself to do that!
