Kiliana Elyse was born on Agust 17, 2008. At the age of 7 months, we realized a change in her hearing; she wasn't responding. Her doctor ordered an ABR test and the results came to show that she has profound sensorineural hearing loss in both ears (bilateral). Genetic testing showed that this is caused by a mutated gene called Connexin 26. This blog was made to track her journey into a hearing world made possible by cochlear implants.
