Sara Biodrowski and her husband Cory have two sons Owen and Oliver. Sara and her family joined Hands & Voices in 2014 after her son Oliver was born with moderate unilateral hearing loss caused by congenital CMV. A few months later, Oliver contracted bacterial meningitis and became profoundly deaf in both ears. Before Oliver’s first birthday, he received bi-lateral cochlear implants and today is a happy little boy who loves his CI’s.
Hands & Voices has been a valuable resource to Sara and her family. They had never known anyone who was Deaf or Hard of Hearing and weren’t sure where to begin or what to expect. The information they received through the Guide By Your Side Program was useful, and the connections they have made with other families in the organization are cherished.
