You have heard me talk about Ohio Valley Voices for many years. The school has been instrumental in Jazzie's successful transition into the hearing world and we are forever indebted to them. It still amazes me at times that out of all the forever families in the world, Jazzie found her way to a family who practically had a school like Ohio Valley Voices in their back yard. If that wasn't meant to be, I don't know what is.
Here is a new video about Ohio Valley Voices. The director of the school explains what the school does much better than I ever could and the parents featured in the video represent other parents like Matt and myself. The pain they describe upon finding out that their child was deaf, the hope they found when they discovered Ohio Valley Voices, the joy they felt when their child started to talk and the gratitude they hold is something we ALL feel.
Please consider making a donation to this amazing school; the program relies on donations to survive. As you know, I am running the half marathon in just 11 days to help raise money so that other children like Jazzie can have the same oportunities she has been given. Jazzie and Tahlia will participate in the kids marathon. Your donation is 100% tax deductable and can be made on-line here. Just enter Team Peffly in the comment section.
