Welcome to my blog!

A peek into my life as a mother to an awesome son, who through his life, has guided me to parent for him, and not what others expect parenting to be. Together, our adventure includes the rollercoaster of learning to understand hearing loss and Asperger’s.

In 2014 I founded a parent outreach and advocacy initiative, Decibles of Love, parent support for kids with hearing loss. This is living my passions; parent empowerment and the holistic development of children in a supportive family environment.

My life journey has seen hardship, poverty, abuse, destruction, loss, heartache, addiction and the resilience of the human spirit to triumph and source strength from its weakest and most vulnerable moments – some of which reflects in my posts.

Creative writing is another great passion of mine, and every once in a while you may come across a fictional post!

My personal quotes that I aspire to live by:

“I’d rather be the odd one out than spend a lifetime trying to fit in where I don’t belong”
“Create your own Happiness”
“Live your best life even in your weakest moments”
“The art of success can be found in the ability to acknowledge that failure is not the end. Failure is an opportunity to learn, to teach, to grow and also to let go and dream a new dream.”

  1. Brave lass!!

    I’m not sure how old your son is, but I’ve been in your shoes.
    I think that I read somewhere that your dad has issues also – perhaps you were more prepared than I was.

    If I’m not overstepping boundaries, let me know if I can help (sometimes help involves laughing over a cup of coffee with a kindred spirit 😉 )
    Kind best wishes for a 2015 better than you could have dreamed of xx

    • Hi!

      Your blog seems to be inactive “page not found”? Do you have hearing loss/a child with hearing loss/are you a parent, etc. I’d like to read your blog?

      Anything is possible, if you live in the South then a coffee and some laughs may just be a possibility 😉

      Have an awesome 2015!

  2. Hi. I post on Facebook groups that I need help with my hearing aid. Someone send me the link to here. Its sound that my hearing aid getting weaker or something. I looking for someone in the valley but I know its cost a lots to let someone check on it. I’m a single mother do things first for my kid, but I know something bout my hearing need attention. Its work on my nerve not hearing well. Hope you can help. Thanks

    • Hi Natashia,
      Sorry to hear that you having trouble with your hearing aid, may need to be adjusted.

      Contact the Deaf and Hearing Impaired Association, 021 448 2510 or deafclub@mweb.co.za – I forget the audiologist name, but this is where my dad went to a few years ago and it didn’t cost much. They work with adults.

      All the best and do let me know if they were able to assist.

  3. Chevone, you really have the most amazing gift! Never stop writing!
