Me: Well sure, I always make a wish when I see it.
Jazzie: I don't think it works at all.
Me: Why do you say that?
Jazzie: Because every time I see the Wishing Star I wish that I wasn't deaf and I still am, so I don't think the Wishing Star is real.
Me (hugging her tight): I know sweetie, but if you weren't deaf I wouldn't have you and you would not be the Jazzie that we all love so much. I wouldn't want to change anything.
Jazzie: Mom! So are you wishing that I stay deaf?
Me (a bit bewildered and frantically searching for the "right" answer to give): No, I just know that your ears are not working correctly and the doctors can't fix them.
Jazzie: The next time I see the Wishing Star I will wish that Dr. Choo can fix my ears. Do you think that wish might work, mom?
