How can hearing aids become more affordable? Raising three hard of hearing teens in a hearing world and trying to pay for hearing aids was difficult, and successful with consistent fight and determination. God is faithful and good. Not only do you have to train and prepare them to become productive , contributing young adults, ( nothing is free) in a hearing world,they also need to somehow have access to affordable hearing aids. All three are graduating with Bachelors 'degrees this May: our son Josiah with a Bachelor 's in Agricultural Science( onward to graduate school but on hold till he gets better hearing aids)our daughter Faith with a Bachelors in Social Work ( continuing Master's program)and our son David with a Bachelors in Nursing( continuing to Medical school)The baton has been handed to them to be good Christians and work for their keep. It is just hard to see them struggling to afford the high tech hearing aids . Just like I need glasses to see, they must have best hearing aids to hear. Thank you and God bless you. Mrs. Brooks
