Can Deaf-Hearing Relationships Work?
Every relationship is different. As long as you are in a healthy relationship with mutual respect and a partner with the patience of a saint, hearing-deaf relationships can work. Like with any other type of relationship, it all comes down to you as individuals and the effort each of you makes to communicate clearly and understand one another. Given a clarinet by her free-spirited aunt, Lara is immediately consumed by a new passion her parents cannot begin to fully comprehend.
This is a great movie. Even though this movie is about deaf parents who become dependent on their young hearing child, I relate to this girl in more ways than being in a familiar relationship with a deaf person.
One scene that I like very much is where the parents are signing to each other in the privacy of their bedroom. The father feels he is losing his daughter because she has this interest in music that he feels he cannot share. The mother tells him that he must learn to accept her as she is.
Fortunately for this young lady, she did have a good relationship with her father. His dependency on her caused a maturity level in her that enabled her to fight for her independance. Eventually she was able to help her father understand while still expressing her love for him.
If only it always worked out that way. Christmas Posted on December 26, by Julia Shumko When I was little, my family had the usual Christmas traditions that most Christian families have. Mom made all sorts of yummy Christmas cookies and candy that were given out to friends and neighbors. We decorated a tree in the living room, and magically presents appeared under it. It was hard to keep my little hands off of them.
On Christmas Eve, all of us seven children with me being the youngest would sit around the tree, my older sister played the piano and we sang carols. Then Dad would read the story of baby Jesus from the Bible.
After that it was time for little ones to go to bed and wait for Santa. I put a plate of cookies and milk out for him. I still remember my disappointment the year he did not eat my cookies. My brother decided it was time for me to know the truth. On Christmas morning we opened presents. Dad was in charge. He passed out one present at a time and we all watched as each person opened their present.
It took all morning.

Then we had a big Christmas dinner. These were good times where everyone was happy and having fun being together. Those moments are overshadowed however with some painful memories. I believe that any child in this type of atmosphere would trade a few days of Christmas cheer for an outpouring of love all year long. As an adult, I spent most of my years single and depressed. Christmas became a holiday I dreaded.
If I wanted to spend it with family, as I thought I was suppose to do, I spent it with my older sister and her large family of seven children. She tried to help me feel a part of it, even going so far as to make me a stocking that hung on the fireplace along with the rest of her family stockings. On the outside I made a good show of expressing happiness and gratitude.
I really was grateful, but on the inside the loneliness deepened. Eventually I stopped celebrating Christmas and found excuses to stay home and spend the day with the television. He spent most of his adult years in the home where he grew up. He also remained single until we met and married seven years ago.
We married at 45 and 46 years old. So when our first Christmas together came around, it seemed natural to think of it as just another day. We did not get a tree or presents for each other. The next Christmas came around and it was just another day, and the next and the next. We had each other. This Christmas was a little different.
We still did not have a tree and did not get presents for each other, but the Spirit of Christmas was strong with the help of wonderful neighbors and friends, and a cochlear implant.
I mentioned in an earlier post that Steve had given up on his implant. About a month ago, he met a man who received an implant a year ago. This man said he could hear and was happy. This gave Steve renewed hope and he decided to try again with his implant. He does not understand when people talk, but he can enjoy music. On Sunday morning, we went to our LDS church where instead of the usual three hours of church services, we had an hour of Sacrament Meeting that consisted of a Christmas musical program.
The choir director wrote a detailed outline of the program just for Steve. She even inserted some personal comments and photos that were interesting and funny.
Sorry about this being a total music sensation. I will include all lyrics of the music which is all the Christmas sermon we need as well as other little tidbits that NO ONE else will be privy to.
Oh, I guess you can let Julie read it. He could hear the young lady playing her flute. He could hear the difference between the women singing in the choir and the men singing. He could enjoy the children singing. To those of us who can hear, this may not be a big deal. But to him, it is a miracle. I pointed to the words of the songs in the outline, so he could follow along exactly.
Church was in the morning.

Our Christmas Eve dinner consisted of hamburgers, and then my visiting teacher and a neighbor dropped by to give us some treats. Steve went from listening to the Tabernacle Choir to listening to rock music in a bar. He did not appear to like the rock music much. Since we went there around noon, the place was nearly dead except for a couple of friendly early drinkers.
Steve announced to me that he wanted to become a drunk. The waitress sat us in a booth far away from the bar. Did she have a sixth sense or was it that obvious we were not drinkers?
She did not give us menus and said she would bring us our turkey dinners shortly. I told Steve that maybe she thought we were homeless people coming in for a free turkey dinner. When she brought them, I questioned her and she said they were only serving turkey dinners today and they are free. That was a nice surprise. I still have my coupon so now we can go there sometime during the evening when the place is alive.
Christmas now is quite different from when I was a child, and different from when I was single.
