An example of a parent of a deaf child asking the right questions

A parent have written a very good letter to AG Bell regarding cochlear plants forhis child (born April 20, 2008) who was found to have profound hearing loss. Surgery is the main thing that concerns him and his wife that they want answers before pursuing this.

I am very curious if AG Bell will respond to him and his wife in clear, accurate, and perhaps unbiased information? I can understand as parents, they find it very tough for parents to find the "right" path for our deaf and hearing-impaired children when their parents are not getting ALL of the information about deafness. AG Bell should be sharing all aspects of what can help parents of deaf children regardless how we think should be the right way. I am happy that these parents are questioning, looking for answers and they are being very careful with their decisions because their child may particularly be vulnerable to suffering at the hands of his parents who may be willful in their own ignorance by listening to so called "experts" relating to biased agendas.
